What is a Brake Pad Wear Sensor?
Your brake pads will wear over time. How quickly they wear down is attributed to many factors, such as road conditions, your driving style, speed, vehicle weight, and the type of pads and discs your vehicle has fitted. On modern cars, the brake pad wear sensor removes the guesswork on worn brake pads and is installed in your braking system to let you know when your pad has worn down and needs to be replaced.
The two types of brake pad wear sensors are electrical and mechanical. Electrical sensors break a complete circuit once the pad has worn down to a certain level (3mm on most vehicles), activating a warning light or message on your car's dashboard.
Mechanical brake pad sensors use a metal clip attached to the pad. Once this metal clip has worn down below the recommended level, the clip comes into contact with the brake disc, making an audible squealing noise, which alerts the driver.
If your brake pad wear sensors aren't working correctly, you won't have any indication that your pads have worn away, making driving dangerous. We supply mechanical and electrical brake pad sensors for a wide range of vehicles, so you should have no problem finding a replacement for your car.
You’ll need to change the brake pad sensors every time your pads wear down, so it’s best to do these jobs simultaneously. Our brake pad replacement kits have everything you need. And you can find out how to do this with our handy brake pad replacement guide. We have many reliable braking parts in stock, so you might also want to shop our range of brake discs, brake lines, and calipers. Be sure to stock up on brake fluid and cleaner while you're here.
