00 ML 430

I need some assistance doing a brake job on my ML 430. Is it possible for the do-it yourselfer? (I am pretty mechanically inclined) What publications should I reference? What pads and rotors should I buy to help minimize the excessive wear problem inherent to this Auto? Help!

Welcome aboard DJ.

Make this post in the W163 forum and you can have the job done in less than 48 hours. They are very much a DIY project. Lots of info in the W163 forum.

DJ: Suggest you use the "search" feature in the 163 section . . .there's been lots of discussion there for the weekend DIY mechanic as well as suggestions on types of pads, etc.
