Squeaking/Worn Brake Pads May Require Rotor Replacement Also on Mercedes-Benz CL500

Problem Description and Possible Solution

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).
