I have a 2007 QP Sport GT.
Confusions abound on what pads fit.
According to the FD website, 2004-2007 QPs have different rears to 2007-current QPs (2 piston vs 4 piston rears). So it is not clear then, that for 2007 models, which rears should be used. Is it related to the transmission (ZF or F1) at all?
According to the first post of the site, ML350/400/55AMG are interchangeable for the rear. Cross referencing the Bendix website, those models of Mercs have different factory pads depending on the brakes used at the time by the manufacturer - yes, within the same model years, go figure. The Bendix model that is common to all three for those listed years seem to be DB1461. To those who have a 4.2L QPV, who have found that their ML350/400/55AMG pads didn't fit, can you please list the manufacturer and part number please? You may have bought pads for those models that aren't common to all three. But I don't know this for certain.
According to the first post of the site, Nissan Skyline R33 GTRs and Ferrari Maranello fronts are interchangeable with our 4.2L QPV. According to the Bendix website, there are two part numbers for the Skyline R33 GTRs of that period (depending on whether its Japanese domestic or export models) and yet a separate part number for the Maranello. So again, if anyone had success with replacing the front pads, please state the exact part number used.
So, basically, all the models listed as interchangeable have more than one part number, i.e, more than one design of brake pads.
If you have successfully interchanged a pad from another manufacturer, can you please list the exact model number of the pads used?
I am in need of new pads, so this would help a lot, and obviously for others in posterity. Thanks.
