    Ok, I have just fitted R32 Calipers, disks and pads, and the new pads didn't have brake pad warning wiring... So I just left it unplugged.

    Only problem now is, obviously my warning light is always on.

    Is there any bodge I can do to get rid of it?

    Cheers

    At the plug? I suppose I could just stick a split pin in the plug and wrap it in tape or something? :D

    yeh or cut the mating plug off your old pads, solder the wires together and plug it in.
