MERCEDES BENZ CLASS R W251 V251 service question fuel filter brake fluid

I see in my R350s bluetec service schedule that brake fluid is due to be changed every two years and the fuel filter to be changed every second service. I missed changing the fuel filter at 20k miles and didnt notice a thing when it was changed at 40k miles. I know diesels are fussier but 20k miles Really Same with brake fluid. Every 2 years Really Is this necessary or is it just benz trying to make more money from service J

Interesting you mentioned the low viscosity fluid as I just ordered a bottle of Pentosin LV fluid last week but have yet to receive it. There is some confusion on the web whether Pentosin or ATE is the OEM fill brake fluid but Im sure both work fine however pentosin does have the superdot4 which more closely matches(in my opinion) the DOT4 spec mercedes calls for (wutever the means) Also I heard the

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E Change brake fluid every 20K miles

Folks - I purchased a 2011 e350 4matic in October. As a new owner Ive especially enjoyed the DIY information in this forum. I do wonder about the rationaleneed to replace brake fluid every 20K miles Ive owned over a dozen new vehicles (this is my first MB) that Ive kept for between 50-65K miles. brake fluid replacement was not part of the maintenance plan. What is so particlar about the E350 Does the brake fluid used break down or something Jim

creates a requirement for good fluid quality to insure fast response from the systems. abs - Requires absolutely clean fluid due to the many control servos inside the abs unit. This not only require moisture free fluid but also have a requirement for lubrication from the fluid to insure the check-valves control servos high pressure pump etc function properly for the life of the component.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS B I 245 Brake fluid - DOT 3 4 OR...OM says M-B fluid

Ok as some of you may know from my threads getting ready to change pads and rotors. No big deal just delayed cuz Im working on the truck (pitman arm was not fun) ahead of the B. Well not so fast...want to flush the brake fluid since M-B recommends doing this every 2 years. Checked the om and it just says to use M-B brake fluid. So...is this DOT 3 or 4 (usually interchangeable) or the silicone brake

Other thing I just realized...some abs equipped vehicles have a step you have to do put the abs system so you can bleedflush the brake fluid. Like a service or diagnostic mode. If you dont do this sometimes you cannot flush somemost of the brake fluid. Anyone know if our systems have such a step I have a bit of time...and will check into this but any info appreceated Unrelated but kinda... Important

Derek...not talking about bleedingflushing the abs pump (some cars have bleeders on them) just talking about some systems having an electronic setting where you tell the abs pump to stay open or something kind of like a diagnosticservice setting. Some abs systems can even be told to apply release the brakes as part of diagnostics and Im sure ours can too just from Rons post above I guess we dont have

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 ABS Pump part number

Hello All Despite trying many times to remove my abs motor (to replace brushes) Im just going to try and replace the whole abs Hydraulic Assembly for my 2001 ML320. Would anyone kindly know the part number Would abs pump assemblies from 98-00 also work I saw some on eBay and it looked physically similar. Thanks so much

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E III 211 Brake system flush - can it be done wo star diagnosis system

Guys Thanks for the information on the brake pad replace I am sure this will save gobs of money in the future. My next question is What is the procedure for the brake system flush and can it be done wo deactivating SBC I have a SpeediBleed which I use for all of my cars. It uses the tire pressure and a regulator to pressure flush the braking system. Works fantastically. Can something like this be used

Actually.... Yes it can be bled without using the internal pump of the SBC system. First off you will need a Motive Power Bleeder Model 0109 69.95 httpwww.motiveproducts.com02bleeders.html Next you may want to use a miti-vac and suction out all the old fluid from the reservoir.

I searched this forum (and others) extensively but I could not find a procedure other than lengthy discussions about SBC systems that require SDS which I do not have (my car has a vacuum booster and a conventional-looking abs pump).

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Spongy brake after fluid flush

Yesterday I bled the brakes on our 97 E420 using a vacuum pump and then put in new pads (Akebono Euro - got them on 3 of 4 cars now) Since the rotors were within spec for thickness and did not have signs of ripple kept them on and did not replace. After setting the brakes with a few pumps the brake pedal would consistently go to nearly the floor (still could get toes of my other foot underneath). The

You have air in the system. The W210 requires a pressure bleeder 2 bar. 29psi Two reasons 2 check valves in the abs need to be pressurized off their seats and the long vertical run the brake lines take from the abs unit to the lower chasis traps air. The pressure bleeder has enough volume to force the air to go down in the vertical portion of their run to the calipers. Vacuum wont work nor will manual pump & release once you have the sponge. Many will say I flushed my brakes and had no problem with vacuumpumping thats because they got lucky and did not introduce air in to the system. 17mm free pedal travel and rock hard pedal with engine off. httpwww.benzworld.orgforumsw210...uid-flush.html

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 ABS PumpESP module removal

Hello All Are there any instructions for removing the ESP module from the absbrake booster module My abs pump motors brushes wore out but I think my attached ESP module was ok. So I bought a complete abs pump ESP Module attached from eBay and my local mechanic installed it. Now I get a beeping Parking brake light. I think my cars computer thinks the ESP module is from a different ML so thats why.

The first thing that we should know is where did you get the used abs pump Post the link and the info on it. The second thing is you havent told us what you did or evaluated to find the problem. The Parking brake warning will sound if the parking brake is engaged or the brake fluid level is low.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Replace Brake Fluid

While doing an inspection on my W210 I noticed a sizable amount of silt in my brake fluid reservoir. I do remember getting an abs warning flash but never threw a code. Planning on using a tukey baster to get most of it out but wondering the best way not to push whatever is in the line toward the calipers. Anythoughts on a reverse flush Been 2 years since the last flush 3 years since replacing the pads (At 65% currently)

I use 35psi or less on my pressure bleeder. In my case(s) Ive always flushed the system every year or two so the fluid is in good shape. Usually only takes about 5 minutes to flush the farthest line. A note on vacuum bleeding. I my experience you generally need someone to partially depress the brake pedal to let much fluid flow even with a vacuum bleeder. And you do need a reasonable fluid flow rate

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W164 Brake Fluid Spec

Hi Looking to do a brake fluid flush and wondered what the DOT spec was for the fluid. Any recommendations.

DOT 4 is the official spec several manufactures came up with DOT4 which has a higher wet boiling point than DOT 4. The difference is something on the order of 168C to 180C I believe. DOT 5 and 5.1 is silicone based and cant be mixed with mineral based. Since this is a M forum Im guessing no one does track days in a ML DOT 4 would prob be enough but Ill order a liter of 4 when Im ready to do mine with

DOT4 purpose is for abs. It has a thinner viscosity allowing the abs to cycle and not get rough. It really doesnt have any higher boiling point or H2O absorption. Strictly made for new gen abs thats all. You can flush cycle thru the abs pump without any trouble as long as you keep up pressure. It took approximately 1.6 L of DOT4 to bleed the entire system including the pump. I changed out the pads sensors and rotors to bring it all back to spec

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W164 Brake Fluid Flush method

I need to do the brake flush soon. My understanding is our W164 does not have SBC. Based on the research on this forum flush can be done using Motive Power bleeder (push) method a pull method using vacuumsuction. My question is in other vehicles a traditional method is to pump the pedal or use a gravity method. Is traditional method not acceptable for W164 If not do we know why Thanks.

Any system with abs has multiple paths from reservoir to brake caliper. Should check and see if there are bleeders on the abs manifold. Usually the manufacturers diagnostic software can open valves for the technician for better flushing. But dont let me put you off doing it yourself. If you get 75% of the fluid every 2 years then all will be good. Most vehicles on the road dont get brake fluid flush

Being satisfied with that purchase I found and bought a 2000 E320 with 114k miles about a month ago... The car is great and if I could fix these couple of issues I would be really happy The first issue is the absESPBAS problem I have already

I had high speed surge on older model and after checking abs pump wheel sensors and gears -good flush of brake fluid solved the problem. I used spare wheel as a source of pressure for brake bleeding and let the air to push all of old fluid out before refilling with new fluid. The new fluid while gargling via the system spit a chunk of goo from brake bleeder. I guess the semi-solids from old fluid can foul abs pump. The noise when turning the ignition on is common on SBC pump but not on abs.

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 brake fluid flush interval

The owners manual for my new (to me) 1984 500 SL says to flush brake fluid every year. I dont know anyone who does it that frequently. Opinions here Thanks

I have never had one of those so dont know the details. I believe some cars also had a separate reservoir in the abs system that normal flushing wouldnt flush.
