hi all

while replacing the front disks and pads on my e230 (1990) i noticed that while there are sockets for the brake wear sensors there are no actual sensors installed onto the pads :confused::confused::confused:.

Now is that an omission by accident or by design i wonder ? . If by design is it possible to retro fir them and if so what are the part numbers ??.

thanks in-advance

The wear sensors are typically sold seperately, dunno what the part #s are off the top of my head, just ask for them by name

Do you have the cables coming down from the engine bay for the sensors to connect?

Is there a warning light in the dash for low brake pads, on your car ?

They are pennies from the dealer.

many thanks

hi

yes its cabled right to the caliper as yet no low pad warning light up. Maybe the previous owner left them off . I will check with the dealer about the correct part number.

The warning system on your car if cabled on the suspension, only puts the lamp on once any sensor pin makes contact with the disc, it will only come on once the pedal has been pushed and stay on till a restart and the pedal pushed again
