    Brake Pad Warning Loom

    Hi guys,

    I need to replace one of my front brake pad warning looms as it appears to have a break in it. Anyone know if it's plug and play replace or is it a cut and splice job?

    Cheers in advance!

    If you're happy checking the pads your self, cut down a paperclip. Put it between the pin holes and tape it up.

    To do: None yet.

    You've not read my OP quite correctly. Its the loom from the pad connector in to the car that needs replacing.

    bridging the connections is making no difference to my intermittant brake pad warning issue...therefore the issue is with the loom from the pad connector into the car. I want to change that loom.

    Cheers

    I havn't yet - it just dissapears in to a loom and up in to the wing.

    My garage say they can get the loom for £60 - although I'm not going to know which side to go for as don't know which one is at fault - dead annoying issue

    For anyone else who has this issue.. You can buy the loom... 60quid and it plugs in just inside the wing! Fixed my issue! ;-)

    If you found the plug you could have just bridged that end of it and saved 60quid

    TO DO: fit my votex front valance (in the shed), c/code the rest of the lowers, sport interior

    Could have done - but want the pad indicators working for future use when the car is sold.
