Rubber burning smell ..
Hi all, it has been a while since I drove my C200. It was static at least for a week now .. so I thought, why not give it ago tonight. So, went out to send my daughter for tuition ... when I got back home, there is rubber burning smell from the driver side wheel. Anybody knows what with the smell? The rim was blazing hot too compared to the rest.. is the brake jammed? Anyway to un-jam it?

Hi bro, pls check your drier side brake disk whether is there any purple color persisted on the disk.

if it is really jammed on your brake caliber without realizing it, your brake disk would scratch in the end!

hello wiraone

i hope you have sent yr car to get the brake system checked...i've seen on the NSE highway one night where the brake calipers got jammed and sparks & metal bits were spewing on the road...like sparklers hari raya...hehe..dangerous to that car & other road users

cheers

Yup, most likely from the brake. May be dangerous.

... but I love the smell of burning tyres on tarmac especially in the morning.

Thanks all, I have not get it checked since this happened last night and realised this when I'm already at home. Hmm.. any workshop near Sg Buloh that I could send my car too? Don't think it can last if I drive to my regular one at Batu Caves.

hello wiraone

i dont know of a competent Merc workshop in Sg Buloh and none is listed in MYBENZ directory based on members' feedback.

however, i know Besout Auto in Rawang that i can vouch for and has no hesitation to recommend you try. pls check the directory for details. Faizal of Besout Auto is a former C&C guy and his workshop does work on other cars as well and is usually packed on weekends. pls give him a call first and take it from there, if you wish to try him out...he's an honest & competent mechanic & workshop owner.

cheers

If I remember correctly, one of our members, Pak majorba, sends his car to his trusted mechanic in Kepong/Sg Buluh area.... Muthalib Auto, if not mistaken. Sorry, but don't have the contact number.

Fixed .. went to Adi's place yesterday .. driving around 60km/h and stopped a couple of time just to make sure I didn't burn my tyre :) So .. did my regular service since it is due soon anyhow and got the sticking piston fixed. Now I know that I should not leave the Merc idle more than a month in the porch :)
