W211 Rear Brake Pads

Have to replace the rear pads on my 04 E500, anything different to these than say a 99 E320, something that I should watch for?
Thanks
Ron

Make sure that the SBC pump is UNPLUGGED or you will have BIG Problems

Several Dealer Techs lock the car and then do the pad replacement...
Just do NOT open a door as that cycles the SBC pump and IF your fingers are in the way...you could get hurt

No Other Items to look out for

If I just lock car it's ok or do I need to unplug SBC, is so do you know where it is plugged? Haven't worked on these, but they wanted $190 to install pads, thought that was a little much?

Two options

Lock the car then proceed with brake pad replacement

or

Unplug the SBC pump..under the hood pass side front of wheel well

For the rear Just lock the car....Do NOT Unlock it or open ANY door
as that will cycle the SBC pump

Just unplug the pump, anything can wake the car up and make it cycle. just unplug it.

Align the rear peg of the brake pad to the groove in the caliper piston. Recheck and retighten all caliper and caliper mount bolts. Bleed brake system to relieve any air in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly.

This is a SBC system.. the bleeding process is quite involved...
