    How to replace the rear back plates on a W203 without stripping the hubs out.

    As we know they rust and the handbrake shoe retaining springs drop out causing a horrible feel to the handbrake plus funny noises as the springs float around and the shoes lean out into the drum / disc.

    Jack car up chock front wheels. Remove caliper and brake disc and also the handbrake shoes,noting which way around the springs go. Always nice to take a few pics as you go.

    I then set about cutting the old plate off. Starting with a full hacksaw then using just a blade in a gloved hand to finish off the task.
