the brake pad light came on recently, so friday nite went to change the pads.

Looks like one piston has been doing the work of two. Measured the thickness of the rotor and it's almost out of spec too.
Put the old pad back in until I can get these rebuilt - kits on order.

Common problem which I think I’ve got on Dora (560SEL). I plan on rebuilding both calipers & a respray. Hoping the pistons are ok....

The 560SEC has gone in for some work this week that should have a number of issues fixed.

1) Front calipers rebuilt and rotors changed over.
2) Will check rears while he is there, I have rebuild kits available for the rears should they be needed. Given rears gum up more that fronts, I think the chances are reasonable they will need it.
3) Major power steering leak - I suspect box may have to come out to be re-sealed. Supplied a steering coupler if it does, might as well change while there.
4) A/C can't keep a charge, blacklight shows a lot of leakage around the compressor. have supplied a new compressor, tx valve, drier. Also trying the klima kit upgraded condenser for better AC performance on R134A. I like ICE COLD AC.
