Yes, you have to remove the guide pins.HI, I need some info on how to change the rear brake pads for my wife E500, I already change out the front one , but the rear do I have to take out any bolt to take out the pads. Any info would help.
Thank in advance.
You are referring to a different pin, I was referring the guide pin for the floating assembly, not the small one that in the front keeps pads in position. Or would you have different brakes from the standard 211070 (Euro)?The front one have the pin , but the rear one doesn't have any pin. ?
I don't think the "anyone" is correct above. I did not find where the OP comes from but if he comes from the US (Canada?), then the advice above is very applicable.You really should have the Mercedes workshop information that Mercedes makes available to anyone.
You can purchase a DVD with the procedures or you can subscribe to Startek Info and download it.
