It's a good idea to have your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Mercedes-Benz, like a battery replacement. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Mercedes-Benz 300TE like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Mercedes-Benz suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your 300TE. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Mercedes-Benz 300TEs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 300TE, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Mercedes-Benz’s standards.
Your Mercedes-Benz 300TE engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
