Question about 1997 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
On a 1997 E300 turbo diesel mercedes
Take the wheels off. Pop off the retaining springs with a screwdriver-note how they are positioned so you can reinstall. On the back of the calipers, there may be two rubber covers that hide the bolt heads-unless someone previously did not reinstall them. There should be 2 torx-40 bolts or perhaps allen head-7mm bolts in the holes. Loosen these up and pry the calipers back from the brake rotors with a flathead screwdriver. This should sufficiently loosen up the assembly. Take the calipers with pads still attached and lift off the rotors. Take the outside pad off first and compress the inside pad-while still attached(you can use a big pair of channel locks or c-clamp). Now replace both inner and outer pads, making sure to use some brake paste and make sure you change the sensors as well. Reinstall and don't be scared if you have to fight with those retaining springs-I like to put the lower part into its hole first, then put the upper end into it's hole, then pry the bent part back over the caliper edge. Do one side at a time, so you can make sure of how they go back together.

Tips for a great answer:
The engine and transmission in this cars drivetrain is fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)
