Hi Jeff, the procedure on the SLK is rather simple. Remove the caliper mounting bolts and swing it out of the way. Remove the brake disc retaining screw and remove the disc. You may need to help it off with a hammer if it's rusted around the hub. Clean the disc mounting surface with a wire brush and install the new disc. Be sure to extract some brake fluid from the reservoir before pressing back the caliper pistons so that the fluid does not overflow. Remember to apply a light coating of brake paste or anti-seize to the caliper to pad contact surfaces. Mercedes does not list a rear sensor for your car. As always, use proper safety equiptment when lifting the car.

Here's a picture Jeff. I think it's an internal hex head screw.
