2016, No.. Its jus that i feel the height of brake is higher than normal Will i be able to adjust the same
Expert:  david craig replied 3 months ago.

You need to know where the brake push rod is before you can adjust the height of the brake pedal. At the right side of the brake pedal is a rod that is connected to the brake pad level through the floor of your car into the engine.Using a wrench, remove the closest nut that connects the brake pedal and the push rod. Using a pair of pliers, twist the push rod clockwise to increase the height of the brake pedal; if you need to lower the brake pedal you can do it by twisting the push rod counter clockwise. The last step is to tighten the nut that you removed in step 3. Make sure that the lock nut is locked tight.

Hi my name is ***** ***** am a Master tech of 45 yrs. I know that Mercedes and other manufacturers don't have or endorse modified brake pedals , but what you can get is modified eat track extensions which are destined for tall people with long leg reaches. These are designed to bolt onto your existing seat tracks to give you more leg room. If your interested in that I may be able to find the company or place you may get them.
