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).

My S-65 is in a Mercedes dealer shop right now. They've just replaced the pads and rotors. It didn't help, the squeaking is still there, which drives me crazy. They're trying to figure out what to do. Any suggestions?
