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..
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...
