lost my login and first posts with the problems on the forum. anyhow, just wanted to thank murphwiz for his excellent write-up and pictures (gone too) to replace the front pads. it was a simple matter of taking out the two pins with a 7mm allen head wrench, pushing back the piston and installing the new pads. torque spec was 21 ft lbs. i got PBR deluxe aka Axxis (formerly repco) from mercedesshop.com. great pads, with only a very light brown dusting over several weeks in my experience. i have used these pads on my MB 300E and they are great!
