Some MB mechanics say you should never rebuild or buy rebuilt MB calipers.

It's interesting that Caliber Mercedes in Anaheim, Calif. sells rebuilt units that they claim Mercedes guarantees. Their price for these rebuilt units in the case of a 126 car was WAY cheaper than brand new ones. I cannot say what they would get for rebuilts for your car.

You might give them a call. If you do indeed need to replace calipers, it might be better to buy something that MB stands beninds vs. attempting the rebuild yourself. Bad calipers can cost you or others their lives.

Liberty Firearms Training - After years of trying to regulate California criminals with a never ending stream of gun control laws they have still not given up with the belief that if they make something a crime that criminals will miraculously start obeying the law.
