'02 E320 WAGON Shock repair question
Recently, w/ 110k miles, I took my car in for repair to the shocks (it was riding rough). Front shocks were repaired fine, but shop disassembled rear PNEUMATIC shocks w/o knowing that the were pneumatic (i.e. Load-leveling) ... I didn't know either.
Anyway, they had ordered the wrong parts, so they put it back together with the old ones (continuing to tell me that I still needed to have the $1,000 repair ... which I believe is untrue).
As a result of improper reassembly (I believe), I had an immediate rear emergency brake shoe failure, resulting in additional damage to the car.
Can anyone confirm/dispute whether dis-assembly/re-assembly of the rear Pneumatic shocks in a '02 MB Wagon can affect the emergency brake shoes?
Shop denies all responsibility....
