Driving With Parking Brake Applied on Mercedes-Benz ML320

Problem Description and Possible Solution

Pad life varies and is dependent upon driving style and terrain. One common problem our technicians report is that motorists will drive with the parking brake applied; this burns up the parking brake lining and wears out the brake rotors.

This happens especially when it is cold out. However i catch it because of the audible.
