Re: [MBZ] Desperately seeking RF brake caliper for my 123 wagon

2015-06-23 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
No flames here - I'm with you all the way on this one. I would do the same, 
much as I did with the S420 alternator recently.

This is the one gripe I have with Advance, which has two stores within 4 miles 
of my house. If the part isn't in stock at a store, you can't order and pick it 
up from the store despite it being in their warehouse nearby.

I have tried doing an end run by asking them to order a part in to the store 
then letting me buy it when they add it to inventory, but they won't order 
something in unless you pay for it upfront.

 it can only be shipped to my house, which entails an extra day of waiting and

 Price is only $66 + $10 core for an ATE compatible rebuild, and the core can 
 be returned be to any AAP store.  My tech has no experience with these

 And yes, I am usually a purist about parts but in this case the new one from

2015-06-23 Thread archer75--- via Mercedes

The Cardone calipers I bought from Rusty have worked well ever since, but 
installing them was a little weird. I grabbed the usual metric wrenches and 
sockets and soon had them both installed, but when it came to the bleeder 
valves, none of the wrenches fit. Cardone had drilled and rethreaded the 
calipers for U.S. bleeder valves which were bigger. So, if you don't have 
U.S. as well as metric wrenches, it might save you some time to pick up a U.S. 
box/open end wrench that fits the bleeder valves when you get them from the 
FLAPS store.
