Just wanted to share this with you. I have a 1990 190E and lately have been
experiencing some break squealling. I know that it's not a performance issue
and the car stops fine, but it's still kind of annoying. Since the car is 14
years old and has the original vented discs, I am going to get new ones
anyway. In this case does it matter if I just get the vented Mercedes ones,
or would getting vented, drilled and slotted discs be better in breaking.
Also, if anyone knows approx. how much this whole shennanigan is bound to
cost please share that too.
I've got to push my brake pedal fairly hard to brake and seeing
that I've got new pads, it must be my rotors that have become to thinn - I
believe about 19mmm is minimum. Anyway, i checked the MB rotor price and
it is CAN$60 or about US$45 or so each. So, no point in turning them. If
you put them on yourself - very easy job - you will spend less than US100
Great car?! Pfft. Mine gave me nothing but trouble, one maintenance issue
Back to original topic. Having to push hard on one's brake pedal can also
mean that there are air bubbles in the brake fluid system.
Bought mine straight from the German Factory and I've always kept
maintenance up. True, if you had a really bad previous owner, then like any
car, you are going to have problems.
As far as I am concerned, my experience w/ the 190E has been nothing but
