    match your code eg '1ZM' (found on boot floor sticker) to the correct pads on this site.

    The sensors are only on the front so worth inspecting the rears as well.

    Just take a wheel off from front and rear and check thickness of pad left.

    Its hardly a lot of money to change them all anyway, so you may aswell do them all and have fresh meat all round.

    Do all A3's have the sensors/warning light?

    When I had my service done, they informed me that the pads were low and they needed to get changed sooner rather than later but there's nothing on the dash to suggest they need changing.

    Not sure, I would think so though!

    Just look at them and you'll see if they are low!

    In most cases, no need to remove a wheel, torch at night will easily show you the amount of tread still on & yes most have sensors, but this is also a coding option aswell.

    You have a DIS warning saying "brake pads" thought was just a symbol personally, oh well everydays a school day.

    Rears last longer for obvious reasons, but as stated, check rears aswell.

    Just ring audi & give the your vin no. & they will give you a price, simples.
