Squeaking/Worn Brake Pads May Require Rotor Replacement Also on Mercedes-Benz 300TE 4MATIC

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).

I think all of the 300te wagons form this brake lip. The rotors must be replaced when this occurs.

The seat springs and padding break down over time, causing a lean, tilt, or sag.
