    brake pad sensors

    hi
    Had the brake pad warning light on the dash for the past couple of days. Had a quick peek earlier and the rear pads are low. Gave my local audi specialist (not a very good one i might add) and the guy thinks the rears dont have sensors so it mustbe dodgy wiring or a sensor on the front. does anybody know if the rears are sensored and what a reasonable quote would be .

    Cheers

    I'm pretty sure the rears do not have pad sensors - only the fronts.

    Found a broken wire. This wire splits from the main wire then there is about 4 inches of wire, A connector and this is the part that plugs into the connector and seems to go down to by the brake pad. Anybody know what it is/part number. i will add a few more photos to add a bit more clarity.

    I only need the small part that splits off (connector to caliper) not the part that goes up into the engine bay. Had a look on ebay and wasn't really sure.

    Cheers

    Depending on how low your pads are I would just pull the wire off the pad and on the plug just bridge it with a piece of wire and tape it up somewere until your pads are due for changing. If you bought a new sensor on a pads which is is fairly worn then you will be purchasing a new one again sometime soon. And they can be quite pricey for some cars these brake warning wires

    Sensors are built into the pads. Just bridge the connector till your pads wear out.
