W205 Brake Pads and Water Pump

3 posts in this topic

My ride is now on the fourth year, i realise the rear pads always worn out faster than the front ones, any reason why?

 

Also, i was advised after 100k mileage to change the water pump as a precaution, is it true?

Ans the mechanic told me around 150k-200k, the gear box 100% garantee will have problems

Usually, front brake pads will wear out faster than those at the rear because the front handles more of the braking load.

If it's not broken then don't fix it unless you do long distances especially in Malaysia

My previous 7.5yr old W212 hit 190k km - never has to change the water pump.

Gear box, I encounter the pcb in the gear box has an issue and got it replaced - not a common known issue
