Brake job on a 126 car - done in a shop that features competent MB techs - can run around $600-$700 U. S.

Chances are the rotors will be replaced - both front and rear, All four sets of pads and the sensors. A good tech will also repack inner and outer bearings(front) and replace grease seals. Go look up the parts prices of what I've listed & subtract from the figues above. There's your labor.

You ain't gonna get a turn-key 126 brake job for cheap and if you do, good luck.

The alternative is to do it yourself. Afterwards, you'll understand why a good shop charges what it does.

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.
