Question about 2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
I KNOW HOW TO CHANGE THE FRONT BRAKE FOR CAMRY, ARE THEY THE SAME OR THE REAR IS DIFFERENT? AND WHAT I HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION ON BECAUSE IT IS 4W DRIVE? IS THE DISC HAVE TO BE CHANGED AT THE SAME TIME WITH THE BRAKE PAD?
The rear brakes are very easy to change. There is nothing to worry about due to it being a 4-wheel vehicle and you only need to change the rotors if they are at minimum specs(printed on the rotor itself). If you don't have a micrometer to check the rotor thickness, then look at the edge of the rotor for a lip. A tall lip on the edge indicates it is best to change the rotors. Also, if the mileage is over 60k miles or you live in a cold climate(where there is a lot of sand/salt on the roads), it's a good idea to double check your parking brakes. But be careful when removing the rotors, they can hang up on the parking brake pad and potentially pull the pad loose. If the rotors are frozen on, use a lubricant like wd-40 on the center of the rotor and let it soak in, then tap around the outside edge of the rotor/hub area with a hammer to break it free.
