    Just tried to fit new pads on my E200 1997 saloon W210, got the spring clips off but could not see what to do next. Can anyone help ?

    Press the pads back in the carrier then remove the covers from the rubber slider covers on the rear side of the carrier and unscrew the sliders to enable you to lift it off.

    OK so i've now got new front pads. When the dash light came on I stupidly assumed I might have say a 500 carefull driving miles left before replacing. I was very wrong, the pads were so worn that their is nothing left of the sensor pin so I could not replace iether side. Enough said & thanx for the help all.

    Buy new sensor leads from your dealer or ECP they are cheap.
    At least you got your moneys worth out of the pads.
