This is actually very common in Mercedes Benz Brakes, I see this all the time. There is nothing wrong with the brake components, I would follow the Dealership's advise and change the Brake Pads & Rotors. Also make sure you have had a Brake Fluid Flush in the past 2 years, if not this would be highly recommended.

Question Answered: hydrolic fluid leaks from the sun visor holes is there a piston in windshield

Yes, there are two cylinders in that area, very common issue specially in the Florida heat.
Luckily there are rebuild cylinders available. Once they start leaking it is recommended to replace all 9 or 11 of them depending on the application.
We are in downtown Boca Raton area and would be happy to assist.

Question Answered: How do I block or bypass hot water to the cabin coils

*** Only work on the system when the engine is completely stone cold and has sat overnight ***
*** Extremely HOT otherwise *** Be careful ***
The Easiest way would be to disconnect the Hoses going in and out of the heater core at the firewall.
Install a piece of non corrosive metal pipe and clamp them together so they have proper flow.
Good Luck and Be Safe!
Question Answered: my convertible top hydro system is leaking where can I obtain a repair manual

Have you ever replaced any of these cylinders? Typically they leak one after the other because the pressure keeps increasing in the system.
You have 2 cylinders on the left side of the trunk, one is the latch for the left rear of the top and the other is the ram for the fabric bow.
Its highly recommended by most experts to replace them all at the same time.
We just completed 2 W129s with the same issue, they typically have 11 or 12 cylinders.
