That's ok... We all have our talents. It's not an expensive repair and any small (less expensive) trust worthy shop should be able to acomphish in less than an hour.

Too bad you're not still at Polk. ;)

Never did work on a Mercedes-Benz and have no experience with its' brake system (Ford, Chevy and Dodge experience), but the symptoms sound like the trouble I had with my wife's El Camino (no loss of fluid, pads in good shape). Turned out to be the master cylinder, (NAPA replacement master cylinder was nearly the same price as the parts to rebuild old one) and an easy fix I did myself. Most time consuming part was bleeding air out of system after repair (very important).
Don't know how cheap and easy it would be with a Mercedes (guessing not that cheap).

I don’t change my own oil. Not mechanical in any sense of the word.

If you were 1,300 miles closer to me, I'd do the job for you. I'm not familiar with you vehicle but I've never seen a master cylinder that you couldn't replace by just lifting the hood. Since you probably don't have anti-lock braking, replacing the cylinder is even easier.

When a person is in genuine need and they let their need be known, someone will show up to help.

Once you've replaced the cylinder, go ahead and have the brakes bled. You should be bleeding the brakes every two years.

Master Cylinder Replacement M-B 300DT turbo diesel

  1. To remove brake master cylinder, use a turkey baster or similar implement to remove the fluid from reservoir
  2. Discard old brake fluid in suitable container
  3. Disengage any electrical connections from master cylinder
  4. Using a flare nut wrench, disengage the fluid lines. Be sure to use a rag to catch any spilled fluid when you disengage the fluid lines.
  5. Loosen the master cylinder-to-brake-booster nuts
  6. Remove master cylinder from engine compartment
  7. Installation is the reverse of removal. Make sure to replace the O-ring between the master cylinder and the power brake booster because this must be absolutely sealed. Torque the nuts to 12-15 ft.lbs. Fill both chambers completely with fresh, clean correct DOT grade brake fluid for your car and bleed the brakes. Mercedes-Benz uses ATE Blue. Otherwise, use fluid meeting or exceeding SAE J 1703B. Any auto part store should be able to tell you which fluid to use.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Sounds as easy as a Ford, GM or Dodge. Figured Mercedes-Benz would have a different *twist* on it, but they don't.

It looks as straightforward as can be. If 2ndDivisionVet finds someone to do the work, or he decides to try it himself, I can send the accompanying photos from the manual.

Yes, honey is a natural anti-biotic and my wife has used it with great success on her ulcered legs. Local honey was recommended to her

Prayers for yours as well as your wife’s health.

I pray that there is someone in Mississippi who can help you out with your car.

You might go to the Catholic parish in your area and ask if St. Vincent de Paul Society could help with a payment toward some new brakes.

Prayers for your wife, for your health, and for your car.

No matter what storms rage around us, we know that HE who said "Peace, be still" is in control of HIS Creation and HIS people are firmly in HIS hands. I pray that he provides healing, comfort, and support - but whatever HE does, or allows, we know it is Good. We may not always understand it ... but we know that all things work together for good to them that love God.

Philippians 4:6-8 Be careful [anxious] for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Think on Christ and keeps your eyes on HIM.

Posted on Wednesday, March 09, 2011 8:31:30 PM by 2ndDivisionVet

As some of you know, we’ve both been having some health issues. My leg is frequently infected from diabetic wounds on my feet. I can’t afford to lose my leg because there’s no one else who can help my wife who had a stroke last year. Now my ancient car’s brakes are giving out, which will make it almost impossible for us to get to the doctor, pharmacy, hospital and store. Thank you for your prayers and good wishes and don’t forget JimRob as well. Thanks in advance.

O Lord Heal our brother please,in Jesus Name! 1I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me. 2O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. 3O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. 4Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. 5For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. 6And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved. 7LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled. 8I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication. 9What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth? 10Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper. 11Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; 12To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
