Trouble with simple rear brake job.

Trying to take my roters off to get them ground but can't get past the 12 point nut. Anyone know the size? Can't find a socket to fit. Any other advise other than taking it to the shop?

See that little allen-head screw?

Remove it and rotor comes off. No need to remove the big nut.

May have to bang on it if it's stuck due to corrosion.

Mercedes rotors, of course, are NOT reground.

You should have the service DVD for your car.
