I have a '99 E300 TD (132K km). I was driving the other day and I
loud "clunk", followed by a grinding sound from the front passenger-
wheel. My brakes were gone!
I took it to the MB garage and they told me my front axle spindle was
sheared!? A new one had to be ordered from Germany!? Ouch!! $$$$
My questions is this: am I simply unlucky, or is this a common
Cheers! and Happy New Year to all!
