MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 2000 ML320 Rear Brake Pad Install

Does anyone know how to replace the read brake pad for ML320 Looks like the front and rear are different. I cant get the caliper off and remove the pads. I think there is some trick for the rear one. Anyone please help Thank you

The only thing substantially different between the front and rear brakes on the ML320 will be evident when (if) you remove the rotor. The rear rotor actually has an inner drum with brake shoes used for the parking brake. Sometimes that system„s adjustment wheel has to be turned to relieve pressure between the shoes and drum before the rotor can be pulled free from the hub  exactly like working

to come out first. You may have to lift up on the caliper and pull the bottom out letting the top pad notches pivot on the top slide (or vice-versa). Once you do this you should be in good to replace the pads. If this does not do the trick let me know and I„ll see what I can help you with. - RODNEY Rodney I am in the same situation that you describe here but being very new to car repair on a benz

BDbr br Did you say front rotor or rear drum brake If rear brake this is more common and could be handbrake related. drum brakes and shoes are a bit more commonly found to stick in the applied position due to rust loss of spring action handbrake cables rusted and stuck in the applied position.br br front (disc) brakes generally do not stay applied unless there is rust in the wheel cylinder which acts

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G 280GE Rear brake adjustment

Hi everyone following a leakage and an almost complete drainage of the brake fluid on the rear right wheel of my 89 280GE a few months ago the mechanic found that brake cylinder to be completely worn out and replaced it.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G Upgrading brake performance

Hi Guys Need some advice. Im not sure if my brakes are working properly or whether theres something wrong. The braking on the truck reminds me of a vehicle with no power brakes. I cant even lock the brakes on dry pavement. The pads look fine the rear shoes are stil OK. Ill bleed the brakes in case theres air in the lines. If that doesnt seem to fix the problem what else could it be I cant imagine what the brakes will be like when I install 35s. Am I overlooking anything thanks Tom

Dave and others How do I adjust the proportioning valve All I know to do is lengthen or shorten the threaded bolt attaching it to the frame. It is basically out of thread as it stands (I even went so far as to get an extra length of threaded rod and a coupler to make it longer no improvement so I removed it). Moreover how do I know what the proper adjustment level should be My wheel cylinders are moving

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 Brake padsdiscs change

How hard it is to change them on a scale from 1 to 10 Can I do it my self Thank you

Its pretty easy especially the front. On a scale 1-10 1 being the easiest Ill give it 5.5. There should be a discussion here awhile back about it. I think Bazzle did a write up on it. The front disk just unbolt from the hub (requires allen key). Just press the padcylinder back a little to relieve the pressure on the disk. Same thing with the back except theres a drum shoe assembly behind the hat for the parking brake. Dont forget to check the fluid afterwards & test the brake

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G Warning Light

I noticed a warning light above the battery and below the oil light that is round with two half round circles. What would this indicatebrp

Your description sounds like the brake warning light (the symbol is suppposed to suggest brake shoes against a brake drum).brThe light is supposed to go on when youve pulled up the hand (or emergency) brake lever but it will ALSO go on (and stay on) if your brake FLUID level is low. Better check the master cylinders fluid level as a start [It could be a defective sensor but confirm that you have a proper fluid level both in the front and also in the rear of the reservoir].brbrp
