    Whilst attempting to fit new suspension I accidentally ripped the break pad sensor cable 2 bits came out and how the sensor is always showing on the dash, is there an easy way to fix this? Thought if I bus the cable back in should be okay but no luck! Any advise will be appreciated! Does it require a whole new sensor?

    You just twist the wires together and job done... normally have to do this for performance pads as they don't come with pad wear sensors

    That's a relief, so just crimp the two wires together do they not have to connect to the sensor? Two wires come off the break pad then connect to a rubber bit on the sensor do I connect them together then push it back into the sensor?

    I normally cut the old plug off a pad and twist the wires together... then plug it into the original wiring plug..

    Depends were you have ripped it off from

    Get new pads, they're cheap enough if you are using standard pads.
