Question about 1997 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Hi Pieter, The rear shafts both have ABS sensors which are gear like rotors and send signals to the computer. The signals received govern the ABS the traction control and speed sensors which in turn supply info to the transmission control and govern gear change. Have the rotors examined for damage and the pick up sensors which can be located on each of the four wheels. I suspect that one of the rear rotors is out of alignment or there is damage to one of the wheel sensors. Regards John

SOURCE: I need to replace both
The best thing to do is call a "mechanic buddy" and have a case of beer on stanby. But if your determined to do it, than at least get a haynes or chiltons book to help with exploded view of the parts breakdown. I would start by jacking the rear end on stands and taking off the tires, the rear brakes and rear bearing assemblies. The cv shafts line up like a regular driveshaft on a rwd, so make sure you don't whack any of the splines up around the edges where they meet the transaxle. I will tell you if you're not comfortable with doing your own brakes, you will do yourself a galactic amount of good by finding someone who is to help you out.

There are several sites on the web, and I am particularly impressed with Diesel Giants site. They are in the business of selling parts AND they give back with sound, do-it-yourself-type of advice. Try this link or go to their web site at www.dieselgiant.com. www.dieselgiant.com/mercedesaxleshaftbootreplace.htm

If doing it yourself go to http://www.Rockauto.com they have parts going back 60 years and are extremely fast. A normal CV joint/shaft e.g. GM costs about $125. The labor will be about $150 at a normal mechanic. Do it yourself and save by seeing how-to's and renting the main bearing socket at http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/home___
or Canadian Tire.
