Front Disc Brake replacement
Useful information about Chrysler Crossfire and how to repair it
- Removing the brake caliper
- Roller bearing protect cap * (You are here!)
- Removing the brake caliper holder arm
- Loosen the disc brake
- Reassemble all new parts
- Get the hub cap tight
This is an information page collection of what I have found and what I have repaired on my Crossfire.
I believe this information must
also be useful to most Mercedes C, CLK and SLK manufactured from year 1997 to maybe 2004.
And if you have a Mercedes SLK R170 with a 320 engine the chassis are almost identical.
You use this information on your own risk! Don't blame me if something goes wrong.
2: Loosen the roller bearing cap and distance plate:
two steps you maybe don't have to do, it's only if you have the same problem as I do.
Above the outer roller bearing there is a dust protective cap that must be removed sometimes,
at least in my case because I have a leakage here and must sealed it in someway.
I used a big screwdriver with a support against the distance plate.
Then bend the cup off.
I have after market wheels on the car, they need a distance plate to fit correctly.
I have to remove that one too.
I took a knife and knocking it down the joint between the distance and hub gently with a small hammer.
Just a small step and then rotate the disc and once again, several times.
