Old cars and brake issues go hand in hand. Especially if the car is not driving very often. Brake problems usually first show up as “dragging” or sticking brakes. If this issue is not dealt with immediately it can lead to serious problem including the car catching on fire.
Kent will walk you step-by-step through the process of cleaning and prepping the old caliper for the new seals. He will share his recommendations on painting as well as how to retard the rust inside the caliper housing.
In this video manual Kent will walk you step-by-step through the process of properly putting the caliper back together again with the new seals and correct assembly paste.
This is a must-have if you attempting a caliper rebuild on one with stuck pistons. If you own one of our injector pressure testers here is a great add-on that will allow you to use the tester to remove stuck pistons from old brake calipers.
You can save a lot of money if you can rebuild your old brake calipers, especially on some older models. If you can just get the pistons out of the housings, most calipers are rebuildable, unless they have been subject to road salt or have sat exposed to the weather for years without use.
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?

These are the best! And now the price is right! Watch the video below to see why Kent gets sooo excited about these brake parts:
Emergency brake shoe maintenance is often neglected because the rear brake disc / rotor has to be removed to inspect and repair them. If the car has ever been driven a long distance with the emergency brake on, expect problems.
One of the most often neglected maintenance items we see even when brake work has been done at a shop. These should just be replaced every 15 years for better performance and to reduce excessive brake pad and rotor wear.
These are great and can be used on very heavy calipers attached to multiple places. Make brake work easy and protect your hoses and sensor wiring.
Whether your just changing pads, hoses, or doing a complete brake system overhaul, the items we include in this DIY will guarantee the job gets done with no mistakes, minimum frustration, and lasting results. There is no other kit like this anywhere.
From our experience, it seems like front brakes are more often neglected than the rears - especially the rotors. Of course, fronts usually wear faster, but it could also be due to the difficulty and the time it takes to replace fronts as opposed to rears. Kent will make it easier. and less.
These are super nice front rotors with a special black coating on the none wear surfaces to reduce rusting. In our tests, these rotors will hold up better with less wear that ATE rotors. We were able to get a special price from our supplier and are passing it on to you.

This unit is located under the approximate middle of the car. A set screw in the arm allows you to adjust the travel of your emergency brake pedal. Often these get very rusty which makes it impossible to adjust and may even bind up and lock your emergency brake shoes.
These can really help your old R107 stop quicker and smoother. If the calipers have not been changed in the last 15 years you can almost guarantee leakage and or seizing pistons that can lead to overheating damage.
From Kent's experience engine coolant and brake fluid are the most neglected fluid maintenance items on older Mercedes. He knows it can be a pain to change them every two to three years, but if you don't it is going to cost you dearly.
