MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G Rear Brake Drums

This past weekend I changed the front brakes and rotors. This week I am planning on changing the rear brake shoes. I have already purchased the brake shoes. Is there anything else I need When I asked the parts guys at the dealership they had never heard of mercedes brake drums. Shocker huh... Do I need any sensors Replacement springs Misc parts that is good to have around Thanks Again Chuck

I did the rear brake cylinders on my 463 a while back as one was leaking. Its easy to do the shoes and I couldnt suggest anything parts wise to change unless your brake cylinders are seaping. Give everything a clean I used a pressure washer after removing the drum. No sensors on mine.V easy job

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 A possible solution to the brake squeal

It looks like I have not been the only one around here with brake squeal problems. After trying EVERYTHING to stop the squeal (replaced pads applied paste repeated heavy braking procedure etc) I drew the last straw. I went out on some empty back roads shifted into 2nd and basically stood on both pedals for 4-5 minutes almost non stop. I have no doubt that I dropped a significant amount of life off

When I had Will Samples do my brakes for me he indicated that he wanted the shoes and the drums so that they could be arced properly. I didnt send him my whole car so are we talking about two different things or is there a way to simulate the drumshoes on the car Len __________________ Len &3959 220S cabriolet &3983 240D 348500 miles original owner &3999 E300D 170000 miles &3903 SLK320 27500 miles

When I worked in my uncles Lincoln-Mercury dealership eons ago they arced the shoes to the drums. If I remember right they had a machine that would accomplish the same thing as the rig Jim Villers showed except it would do it off the car. The ID of the drums was measured and transferred to the machine. The machine when properly adjusted would grind the lining material to the correct diameter. When

Has anyone had problems with mirror size and are there any mirror extensions available How easy (or difficult) is it to put on a seven point trailer

I am completely re-doing my brakes at each wheel - hoses pads rotors shoes drums and cylinders and calipers if they need it. A new master cylinderbooster may be a good idea. The trailers are pretty light max 2000lbs loaded (wet) maybe less and we are planning on going pretty small probably about 13 foot. You addressed most of the same concerns I have already thought of though. A SWB towing can be a

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G LOW COST PARTS

I mentioned somwhere to someone that Ford Transit ball joints fitted G tracking rods. The track rod ball joint pictured costs approx Â8-00 UK what would a MB one be in the US and is it worth me sending 5 or so over to Lee in MD MB delivery van brake parts also fit Gs and are 12 the price.

Any sort of brake part (hydraulics shoes pads drums rotors springhardware kits etc) clutch parts diff lock cylinders and seals rod ends universal joints all are good candidates. Some of the big hard parts are needed in smaller quantities like transfer case transmsision drive shafts steering box etc. We here are so used
