Kent's Garage Episode 20

250SL Brakes Rebuild or Replace, Shrunk SL Top, Cleaning Rotors, 300TD SLS

In this episode Kent shows what he found wrong with the brakes on a 1967 250SL. Why was it so costly to repair anyway? He discusses the causes of sticking brakes and challenges he faces to find a way to help owners of older Mercedes or any other old car to prevent having to do these type of extensive and costly repairs. When it comes to brakes nothing beats prevention. The same could be said for the self leveling suspension on a 300TD wagon. Work starts this coming week on helping the owner find out why his rear suspension is acting so badly and what it is going to take to fix it.
