    Was checking my rear brakes today as i need new pads.as i was feeling around to see if they had sensors,i came across a plastic tag type thing on each of the rears,behind the disc and was just wondering what they were and what they were for

    any ideas?

    Wtf is that lol, checked etka rears & nothing obvious, could be of a supporting part in that area.

    The end design obviously goes into a hole as it has expending ends as such, to hold it in place.
