Question W114 '72 250C brakes...

Parts are all in hand and was wondering if anyone here has a pdf file on the step by step instructions on caliper rebuild (ATE calipers) as well as brake rotor replacement. Going to change all the brake hoses as well. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Rotor replacement is very simple once you pull the caliper off, there should be one hex screw in the center that holds it in (between the wheel bolt holes).

Calipers are a pain in the rear. I did a set one an R107 and it's not worth the aggro as you can find rebuilt calipers in Autozone for about $50 / corner.

With best regards
