    Brake pad sensors

    Going to jack the car up tomorrow if I can get the jack under. Going to look at brakes, where are the sensors to? Are they on the back brakes aswell?
    Cheers

    Sensors clip into rear brake pad IIRC.

    No sensors on the back brakes, the pads have a metal bracket on them that rubs on the disc when pad is low. Makes a screeching sound.

    Yeah, might even be able to see it without removing wheel depending what style you have. Top of the pad there is a hole the sensor clips into.

    Just remembered it has EBC Redstuff pads so would they be able to have the sensors on?
