How about changing rotors as well, I have a set of new ceramics and crossed drilled rotors for my CLK 5. Would you rate this to be an easy job?

i can only speak for my slk but the front and rear are held on by 1 allen bolt. remove the bolt used a dead blow hammer to loosen the rotors and remove. removed calipers by removing the torx bolts and 2 bolts that hold the caliper carrier on. move caliper out of the way

highly recommend a manual and searching the forum sites for info on your model. i have found a wealth of info on my forum also mbworld, slkworld and mercedes forum just to name a few

it also helps the other forum members if you update your profile with area and model type of car if you havent already

It's one of the easiest DIY projects on the car. If you're not replacing the rotors, you'd be wize to get the rotors turned (re-surfaced) by a local shop. If not, your new pads will have a longer seating process, and your rotors will be prone to hot spots and warping. You should replace, or turn, your rotors every time you replace your pads. That way they will "seat" to eachother and last much longer. Just a thought...
