Hi all,

Need to rebuild the front calipers on my 109 3.5 but Pelican Parts doesn't list a kit. Where is the best place to find what I'm chasing?

Also interested in any simple brake upgrades for the 109's, I seem to remember a W126 500sel hub and assembly bolts on if I'm not mistaken.

Thanks guys, should mention I'm in Australia and need them fairly urgently.

Do they dealer kits include pistons as well for US$65? Mine are cactus unfortunately :(

The dealer kits don't include pistons.

Luis: Do check the archives. I also believe there is a bolt on fit for the 560 parts. I'm sure I read it here.

The 560 Calipers bolt on , but new hubs are needed to fit the Rotors . I have made a set for a conversion here but it's pretty labour intensive and the material is damned expensive in Australia .I used a very high grade steel but was lucky to source a chunk which was just long enough to make two hubs.

Sketchy, if it's of any use to you the part number for the pistons is 000-421-35-83, and are still available from any Mercedes dealership or the Classic Center.....but they're around $110 each.

Getting the parts you need quickly may be an issue, and if you are willing to wait, then have a look at the following links. They provide a place where you can get everything you need from two places at much better prices, and buying new/rebuilt calipers will cost much less than buying parts for the ones you have now. And i don't think shipping will kill you too badly, either....but I could be wrong.

Ron, can you give me further info on the 560 swap? I have a friend rebuilding the 3.5 calipers for me but I have also located a benz enthusiast here in Australia who is happy to send me an entire 560 front brake assembly quite cheap that I'm seriously considering for my 6.3.
