If you mean caliper, take the lid off the brake fluid resivoir and use a c clamp to compress the caliper.

Brake lights don't come on when pedal is pressed, all other lights work. What could be the cause?


While I'm not overly familiar with Mercedes, I'd assume that it still has a brake light switch located on the bar of the brake pedal itself. This switch is typically just a "plunger" style switch, where when you push the pedal down as if applying the brakes, the plunger extends outward turning the brake lights on. When the pedal is released, as if letting off the brakes, the plunger is depressed causing the lights to shut off. If that plunger gets stuck in a depressed position, the lights will remain off at all times. Check that first, along with the brake light fuse and/or relay. Good luck.

Disc brakes, front


Could be air in brake lines. You don't say if the brakes are power but if they are, have you also changed the master cylinder and brake booster? If so, the plunger from the brake pedal to booster may be need adjusting. Hope this helps

Need to know which fuse is for the brake lights all three stopped working at once


It's probably not a fuse -- check the brake light switch that's attached to the brake pedal shaft. Pressing the pedal compresses the plunger, making contact and turning on the brake lights. Manually press and release the plunger several times and see if the light function is restored. If that doesn't work, try a little (VERY little) WD-40 or silicone lube on the plunger. If neither works, you'll need to replace the switch - an easy and inexpensive job.

I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH STOP LIGHTS ,THEY DONT TURN ON


1) Unplug the Brake Light Bulbs and with a Voltmeter, check for voltage on both sides.
2) If you have voltage: change the bulbs and recheck operation.
3) If you do NOT have voltage: go under the dash on the drivers' side. Look up onto the arm of the Brake Pedal. There should be a switch behind the arm, On the switch should be a plunger. With a partner at the rear of the vehicle: Depress the plunger in, and have your partner check for Brake Lights.
4) If you now have Brake Lights: the plunger and/or switch can be adjusted. The Brake Arm when depressed, pushes-in the plunger activating the Brake Lights. Some Plungers can be unscrewed (counterclockwise) to shorten the gap to the Brake Arm,
5) If you still have NO Brake Lights: Twist the Switch/Plunger 1/4 turn, removing it off the support bracket. Unplug this Switch and again check for voltage.
6) If you have voltage: the Switch is bad and needs to be replaced.
7) If you still have NO voltage: Check the fuses.

Brake light comes on - even when the key is out and the the car is stoped. I´m worryed that the it will some day drain all the power from the bettery.


hi from uk from symtom you describe this is a fault with brake light switch just try this 1st ? have someone watch brake lights while you pull brake pedal up if lights go off ? then simple remedy look at pedal just below its pivot shaft you will see a switch with plug attached with two wires this switch has a plunger that when pedal pressed plunger moves out to put b/lights on then lights go off when pedal is off as it pushes plunger back and breaks the circuit to adjust this just pull off plug from switch then with pedal pressed off switch you simply rotate the switch a full rotation screw clockwise then refit plug now plunger should be fully back and so lights off ? if nt repeat above once more till lights off lights will go off this is trial+error adjustment till lights operate on with pedal down 1/2 inch brake lights on! hope you understand above this is not unusual fault as switch plunger is plastic and so wears ?

MY BRAKE LITES WERE OUT FROM THE PETAL BUT STILL WORKED FROM THE TRAILER CONTROLER SO I CHANGED 0UT THE BRAKE SWITCH. FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE SWITCH PROVIDED INT THE BOX FROM NAPA PARTS. SAID...


The switch has a small plunger that has been pushed in too far. These are self adjusting units. You must pull out on the plunger with the brake pedal pressed, you will here it make noise as you pull out. This is normal then just release the brake and the pedal will set the length of the plunger for you. NOTE do not pull up on brake pedal, this will throw your adjustment off!

No rear main brake lights.


It may be the brake switch, on most vehicles the brake switch is located under the dash at the brake pedal lever, A plunger type switch when brake pedal is depressed plunger extends compleating circuit , may just need adjustment. peace S.R.

Changing front brake pads FIRSTTIME


You can compress the piston with a large C clamp. Screw type pistons are generally at the rear, when caliper is also used as emergency brake. I generally use the inner brake pad to protect the piston from damage while compressing it. If it does not retract it may be frozen or the rubber line going to it has internally failed. After completing change, pump brake a few times to re-set piston position so you have brakes.
