2008 Mercedes-Benz E350 ProblemsBrake Light Switch Failure May Cause ESP/BAS Warning Lights
The ESP and BAS warning lights may illuminate due to a failed brake light switch. Replacement of the failed switch should correct this concern.
High mileage or older vehicles commonly develop leaks from the differential seals and/or cover. Our technicians recommend a complete reseal of the differential unit whenever these leaks are repaired.
Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).
2008 Mercedes-Benz E350 Questionswhen do the front shocks need to be replaced typically?on a 2008 E350 (1 answer)
It is a recommendation from technician at the dealership to do this while replacing front springs/coils? Not sure if this is necessary. I was told it's recommended due to age of vehicle while doing the other work? Estimate given for shocks $877.60.
Springs/coils estimate $1,301.20
When one spring coil is broken (front left) should the other one (front right) be replaced automatically at the same time?
also my license plate lights and 3rd brake lite went out all at the same time.
