Success, new pads and rotors on 126

I just finished changing front pads and rotors and rear pads. Cost me about $100, and took about 3+ hours. The hardest part was seperating the hub from the old rotor. I don't have a vise, so I bolted the hub and rotor onto the wheel and wrestled the bolts loose with a 3 foot breaker bar. Those babys were really on there, soaking them in Liquid Wrench helped too.

Last week I did a new water pump. The information learned here has given me the confidence to tackle these jobs. I figure I have saved close to $700 in the last two weeks.

Thanks Mercedes Shop!
