I need new brake pads for my E320. Both Autohauz AZ and Mercedes Shop want to know what the chassis number is in order to get the correct pads. I tried searchnig this forum so i could figure out what pads this car needs, but i have had no success. How does one determine the correct brake pads?

Thanks
Greg

By providing the chassis number of your vehicle, aka VIN.

It's the last six digits of your VIN number, from your title. They are trying to determine if you have 22 mm thick front rotors or the later 25 mm thick rotors. Check the rotor listings at Autohaus for more info. If you have 22 mm rotors it should say somewhere on the rotor "min. 19 mm". If you have 25 mm rotors it should say "min. 22 mm". You need to measure the thickness of the rotor anyway - if it's significantly more than 22 mm you have the thicker, later rotor.

Thanks, I figured it would be something simple. Why don't they just ask for the VIN? When I searched Chassis number for E320 all I got was 124.
