Question about 2005 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz E320 Cdi
TO replace the rear rotors on a 2003 E320, do I:
1) need to remove the hub assembly on the rotor?
2) what size socket is required to remove the hub assemble?
and 3) what size allen wrench is required to remove the bolt of the brake assembly so I can rotate the brake assemble out of the way to remove the rotor?
Thanks in advance for any response you might be able to provide.
Generally when you remove the caliper assembly the rotor slides over the hub assembly. Since I have not done a brake job on this particular model, it may possibly be held in place by the hub nut. Remove the caliper assembly first in order to be sure. I could only find two diagrams for the brake assembly for the E320, neither one had the size of the nut or allan bolt. The easiest way to get the size is to measure from one flat area directly across to the other flat area this will give you the size for the socket and allan wrench needed. If in the US, keep in mind that this is in a metric measurement, so it will calculate to millimeters, which makes it much easier to measure than the American standard. Also, if you do have to remove the hub nuts, they will not have to be replaced unless you scar the threads or round the corners.
