Brake Pads

Edit - Should be brake pads right... doh.

So I've started getting a brake pad alert on my A6. Can I replace them myself or will I need to go to an Audi Garage/Dealer?

Also does anyone know at what percentage the alert pops up - I assume I'll be able to drive it for a couple of weeks before replacing.

Front or rear?

You need a tool to push back the piston, and if it's the rear then you will need a diagnostic tool (like VCDS) to wind back the piston. other than that it's a simple job.

I don't know if it's rear or back - it doesn't show that on the display - I guess I could have a look and work it out though.

I cannot remember if some of the C7's have rear wear sensors, most likely be the front brakes, so you would just need a tool to push the piston back.
