Changed front disc and brake pad (both Bosch) and steering vibrating terrible at 90km/h onwards
Guys,

I really need help. 2 days ago I got a brake lining wear warning on my W210 E200 Kompressor. After that I went to Euro Auto Parts in Kota Damansara to buy brake pads and the guy took me to a workshop called Zhong Cheng Service Centre and was advised that my front brake pads are worn out and the disc is already uneven. So they recommended that I change both brake pads and the discs which I agreed to.

So I bought 2 Bosch disc and Bosch brake pads also.
After changing, now my steering is shaking terribly when I drive beyond 90km/h and it just gets worse. Before this my steering never vibrated even up to 150km/h.
Now the guy is saying that the spacer I am using between my rims and disc is not fit properly causing the vibration. He is asking me to get an on wheel balancing done.
Stressed now :(

Need some advise from Sifus. Thank you in advance.

I am using the W204 rims with 235/45r17 tires.

What did they say about the wheel bearings .. bad wheel bearing can also contribute steering vibration.

normally,after changing front suspernsion part or linkage or braking parts,wheel allignment is required.In your case,the whole front linkage assembly is taken out ,resulting your tyre allingment and balancing is out.Try sending your car for re allingment and balancing.Hope it will solve your prob.

They didnt say anything about the wheel bearings. Only mentioned that my spacer is causing the issue that the fitment is not perfect between the rims and the hub. I did balancing already and the vibration is still there.

Thank you for your response. Are you also using the same rims and tires as me? Do you use spacers also? Need some advise on the spacers, if I should get new ones or try to look for rims that does not need spacers.

hmnn, i am nor familiar with w210 suspension and tyres set up but for my w220 at one time my steering was not just shaking ,it was all over the place and after a few so call diagnostic on my own found out that my bearing is loosening out , so my options is either i tighten it back or replace it and i opt for the later.After that everything seems to be back to normal. but as i mention before may be your setup is not he same as mine it might not be related.It is something for you to ponder upon.

If you don't have any issue before you changed the brake disc and pads, likelihood it is not caused by the wheel bearing. I think it is the wheel balancing that causes this especially when this 17" wheel. I believe when they remove the wheel they didn't mark the original position of the wheel and fix it back accordingly. On wheel balancing should fix it. Thanks

Is it on wheel balancing or normal balancing?

I got an offwheel balancing done and it didnt solve the problem. If I do an on-wheel balancing, and if it solves the problem, everytime I take off the tires for any reason, it will become haywire again is it? This is quite a hassle. Is it normal to use spacers in this car? I actually just got this W210 about 3 months ago, so it came with the W204 rims and spacers together.

Do you know any good workshop that I can buy new spacers from at a reasonable price and also do on-wheel balancing? For back tires, is it possible to do on-wheel balancing also?

Please advise. Thank you.
