Mercedes-Benz Rear Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Rear brake components typically wear out well after the front brakes due to the level of stress required to slow a vehicle. Some rear brakes can last up to 50,0000 - 80,000 miles, but you should consult your Mercedes-Benz service manual for recommended maintenance intervals for all components. Keep in mind you should always have your service department perform a multipoint inspection which includes inspecting your brake system.

Mercedes-Benz Front Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Wear and tear on your brakes depends greatly on your driving habits and the type of brake pads your Mercedes-Benz has, but usually front brakes wear out before rear breaks at 30,000 - 60,000 miles because they are typically under much less stress.

Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The Mercedes-Benz brake system is comprised of the following key components:

  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Mercedes-Benz braking system together so it can perform properly.
  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to activate the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to activate the parking brake of your Mercedes-Benz.
  • Brake Hoses carry brake fluid from the brake line to your Mercedes-Benz brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be inspected frequently for cracks and added symptoms of deterioration. Check your Mercedes-Benz maintenance schedule for more information on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps impede grime buildup thereby extending the life of your brake system.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Mercedes-Benz brake pedals to perform the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road at each times.
  • Brake pads or shoes are the components that physically makes contact with your brake rotor and apply pressure or friction to slow and hinder your wheels from turning. It's extremely basic to keep Mercedes-Benz brake pads fresh by replacing them as the undergo quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your Mercedes-Benz maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Mercedes-Benz rotors to slow or hinder your vehicle.
  • Rotors also called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to hinder the wheels from spinning. There are numerous types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let Plaza Mercedes find the best type of brake rotors for your Mercedes-Benz

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which also acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can also cause damages to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start warping them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate also protects the brake caliper from excessive heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The amount of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will evenly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Generally, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.
