Chrysler Crossfire:
Front Disc Brake replacement


Useful information about Chrysler Crossfire and how to repair it

  1. Removing the brake caliper
  2. Roller bearing protect cap
  3. Removing the brake caliper holder arm
  4. Loosen the disc brake
  5. Reassemble all new parts
  6. Get the hub cap tight * (You are here!)

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.

Note:
You use this information on your own risk! Don't blame me if something goes wrong.


6: Get the hub cap tight:

Because of earlier water leakage into the roller bearing I have to do something about the dust cap. My problem is that this car have aftermarket wheels, looks very well, but it have very narrow space where the dust cap is suited.

I have now cut the rim by 5 mm to let it fit in a more narrow space.

To reinstall the distance plate I have to grind off a bit of the hub cap's outer rim too.

Before you take the car out for a test drive. Test braking and pump with the brake pedal until it feels ok before you start the engine, in the beginning it could go to the bottom so be careful !
