    brake sensors

    I've got a coupe turbo and i replaced the rear pads. The brake pad change is still showing on the trip computer, so is there a sensor that needs 2 be replaced?

    Yup - if you let it wear to the point the sensor activates, you need to replace the sensor too. Best keep an eye on them and replace them just before - but then if you are going to do this, you don't need the sensor. If you don't want the sensor, cut it off and short the two wires together to stop the warning coming up.

    Lol. I assumed it may have been regarding one of the other cars in his signature.
