1 or 2 pin brake pads?

I have a 2001 E320 4-matic sedan. Looking to order new brake pads and it looks like for the rears I have a choice of one or two pin pads. I don't have easy access to look today and wondered if there was a way of knowing short of pulling the wheel?

Thanks,
M

Pulling the wheel allows you to be 110% certain.

You can check some other sites, many break it down by chassis number so you'll need your VIN to extract that. That said, I've heard at least once someone said their chassis number was supposed to be one and it wasn't. You can take that with grain of salt; personally I would wait until tomorrow to order them and pop a wheel tonight. Actually you may not even need to remove a wheel, just jack it up a little and get under and look/feel.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg
