    According to the workshop manual the brake pad wear indicators are only installed on the front right, which is the drivers side in our case.

    Unfortunately all it says is "Unplug connector for brake pad wear indicator" but does not give any picture.

    They are very small and clip into a small recess in the inner pad usually. If you jack up, take a wheel off you should see it. About the size of a pea with a cable on it.
