Installing new front rotors on older model Mercedes requires that you remove the rotor from the bearing hub and bolt the new rotor back on. Sounds easy right? Sometimes not! The bolts are on very tight and often take a lot of torque to remove. How do you hold the break rotor while doing this? A vise may or may not work and when you go to torque the new rotor back on the hub, holding it in the vise car damage it.
In this video Kent will show you some tips on how to remove it yourself. As an added bonus he will explain a tip on how to test your front wheel bearings for excessive wear. Torque settings are not covered in the video. The correct torque of the hex head bolts holding the front rotor to the hub is 115 NM.
