Brake are a snap.
Yeah. I'm doing the brakes on my 92 400E today. New pads and having the rotors checked for trueness. Will turn as needed. To remove/ replace the rotors/pads is a very straightforward process. I understand your apprehension at working on the car. But do your self a favor and get the CD's/Work manual and get to know this car intimantly. Both provide diagrams/pics to guide you along.
