Hello, When you are looking at the caliper, you should see two pins holding the pads in. Look for the holes or the ends of the pins and drive them toward the inside of the caliper until they come out. Then take a large screwdriver or large channel locks and pry the pads away from the rotor. Now you should be able to take the pads out. When installing the new pads, you will have to put the pins back from the back side until they are flush with the caliper. When finished, make sure you pump the brake pedal until it comes up to the normal level before trying to move the car.
I hope this helps.

How to Replace Brakes on a Mercedes-Benz E320?


1) To replace the brakes in your car you need to turn the lug nuts for all the wheels.
2) You will have to turn it one-quarter counter clockwise with the help of tire wrench tool.
3) For this procedure the car needs to be lifted to a height. So Turn off the key, raise the car and support it with jack stands. Lift both the front and the rear of the car.
4) After that remove the lug nuts and wheels carefully.
5) Now above the brake assembly you will see the bolts holding caliper mounting. Remove the bolts. This will loosen the brake pads .so remove the brake pads carefully.
6) Insert the new brake pads and reassemble the brake caliper assembly. Assembly is the reverse of dis-assembly.
7) Refit all the parts properly which you removed while removing the old brake out.
8) Fit all the bolts carefully to their respective positions.
9) Fix the wheels and lug nuts. Tighten the bolts properly.
10) Then Lower the Mercedes to the ground from jack stands carefully.
11) Then turn the car ON and check the pressure on the brake system by applying the brakes.

I have a 1984 mercedes 380 SL .Had the brakes worked on recently due to a rumbling sound coming from rear brake. Found brake pad disentegrated. Now that the repair is complete. The car pulls to the left...


I would return to where you had your repair done and enlighten them on the issues you are having. They should adjust or fix what needs done for free. Other than that it may just be due to having a new pad on the just one brake, so it is in turn more efficiently braking than the others causing that wheel to slow down faster than the rest.

In replacing front brake pads, do I first loosen or remove the two bolts that hold the caliper itself, should I have brake fluid resv cap off? Robert


You'll want to remove the two bolts that hold on the caliper. Remove the caliper and brake pads. You'll need to collapse the caliper piston back into the caliper to get the caliper on with the new brake pads. You can use a C-clamp, or a caliper piston tool to push it back in. I would remove the reservoir cap when you collapse the piston into the caliper.

It is imperative that you loosen the caliper bleed screw BEFORE you push the piston back into the caliper. Failure to do so WILL damage the ABS hydraulics.
