Brake pad wear sensors?


Recommended Posts

On an 04 2.7 if you are switching pads don't many omit the use of a wear sensor, or not even have the provision to use the sensor? Any pads other then oem that do use the sensor? It appears that it clips to the top of the pad but I can't tell id it is actually integrated or not (or simply clips on).

Thanks!

I try to answer based on the recent pad change on my GT3. The sensors (2, one inside pad, one outside pad) just slide into a groove machined into the pad backing plate. The pad wear sensors can certainly not be used, if that is being the case the sensors can be coiled up and secured to the underpinnings with a wire tie or such. Or they can be removed and a suto sensor can be made from an old sensor connector by twisting the wires together and inserting the adapter into the receiving plug.

I used Pagid pads and the fronts had the proper groove for the sensors while the rears had a groove cut but did not fit the sensors, so I just didn't use them on the rears.

Hope this helps.

My front sensors have been tied to the brake lines for a while as the rotors were getting close to the sensors. I am going to wear the pads down to the backing plate before I replace them.

Some aftermarket pads do not have the holes for the sensors. We put Hawk front pads on Jean's car and there were no holes. I just bought Mintex front pads and there are no holes.
