You won't be thanking me when you find out that you have to look at every page at that site before you find that tool. The special tool listing is not in any kind of order to make searching easy!

Good luck...

Okay folks.. I don't know who ahs done what before here, BUT.
YOu can change the brakes and rotor on the W211 Without all of that resetting stuff the WIS spells out.
All you do, is treat the car like it's normal,,. Meaning..

Colapse the caliper before you remove the pads like you would do any other car..
then..
As far as the SBC goes, it does nothing unless you open, the drivers door. OR, have the darn thing turned on when you're doing the brakes.. ( don't do that..)
SO, do one brake at a time, one wheel off the ground at a time, ( No need to jaack up the whole car, that's crazy and unsafe.., and do not open the door until you have placed the new pads and caliper over the rotor then you're safe.
That's how I did it ( twice ).. No issues at all.. Car stops on the same dime it used too. so there with the brake/rotor job...

That'e essentially what I did when I had to change the rear pads/rotors. I disconnected the SBC as an extra safety precaution, but that was probably not needed.

I changes both front and rear brake rotors and pads recently, and I just disconnected the SBC connector and workd on one wheel at a time. Now I have new pads and rotors on all four wheels, not to mention I saved bunch of money by doing it on my own.

I did the same as Paul, and did so while changing the front and rears. One wheel at a time, rotors replaced as well. I also upgraded the brake pads to a diiferent brand/design.

I replaced the rotors since they were at minimum thickness and decisided to spend the extra bucks for slotted/drilled units.

Removing error message after pad change

Thanks for the great tips guys, my rear brake pad change went smoothly on my E320. I used the SBC disable/enable procedure since I had the car up on a lift. The car is breaking great but the error message is still present on the dash display. Is there a way to reset that or does that have to be done using the STAR DIAG? I ensured the sensor was inserted into the new pads correctly so I expected the error message to simply disappear. Any ideas?

My father and I replaced the rear brake pads and rotors on an 03 E320 and we followed the procedure of having all 4 wheels in the air without disconnecting the SBC plug.

The spinning the rear tire and front tire caused the wheel being spun to be braked, the rear and front blinkers to blink, and then we heard the initialization procedure (hydraulic pressure was applied to each brake snugging the pad up to the rotor).

I agree that this was not necessary. The rear brake pad sensor was not tripped (by 1 mm.), so we re-ued the old sensor and did not have to clear the brake worn light. Other pads were more worn than the pad with the sensor, so it was definitely time to replace them.
