How do you fix a wheel when it locks on a Mercedes-Benz.?
Remove the tire. Check the brake caliper to see if it's locked up. If it is, remove it and see if you can clean the piston. Caliper kits are available from PerformanceProducts.com for $16 to $28. If the caliper isn't at fault, you may have spun a wheel bearing. This is quite a job for an experienced mechanic ( I dealt with mine on Christmas Day 2007). If the locked tire is in the rear, and your calipers are okay, then you might have a locked parking brake.

Jack up the car and take off the tire. After the tire has been removed, decompress the brake caliper and remove the brake shoes. Remove the 2 bolts attaching the caliper and remove the caliper. There are 2 more bolts left, they hold the caliper mount on. Remove those 2 and the Rotors wil come right off
