brake sensor

  1. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I'm getting ready to replace the OEM pads on my 2005 e86. Yes they are OEM as it only has 55K miles on the clock. I have green EBC sport pads that are going in and I may/may not turn the rotors depending upon the looks of them or if there is much of a lip. I also ordered both sensors as what...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have a 2011 BMW 328 xDrive. My brake light came on and I started to check my brake pads to see if theyre worn...Theyre all good but I noticed wires hanging from my front left wheel well. I understood that my brake sensor somehow fell off and got ripped off by the wheel. My questions is which...

    My brake service light just came on (the one with the car on a lift and an illuminated brake light) and I have a couple questions about changing the brake sensor - pads are fine. Is it okay to just replace the one sensor or should I replace the set?

    I recently tried to replace my brake bad sensors in my 99 528i. I got everything out just find except the male end of the plug that connects to car. Long story short, I need a link to the male end of the plug.
  5. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I have a 2007 Z4... My brake warning sensor went on yesterday. About how much life if left on the pad? Can I finish the week driving to work, or should I park it until the weekend when I have time to work on it? What do you think is the best break pad, Semi metallic or Ceramic? I...

    With almost 150,000 miles on the odometer, I am getting a replacement for my beloved 2010 750ix, M-Sport. Unfortunately, with the new G11 7-series still some time away, I am getting an MB E63-S for now. I have the following items that I bought and had planned to use for maintenance that will go...
  7. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi Guys, After doing a rear brake job on my 328i the red brake light sensor indicator on the dash board won't go away. I redid the front brakes a few thousand miles ago so those must be fine. And yes, I did replace the wear sensor on the pad. I tripple checked that it was installed on the pad...
  8. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I replaced my rear brakes a couple days ago and everything went fine. The next day I realized I should reset my rear brake lining mileage. When I did that, the mileage went from 11,000 miles left to -17,000 miles. Now my car is complaining that I'm 17,000 miles overdue for brake lining...

    What's a good brand that doesn't shed too much brake dust ? I see a lot offered in EBay. They also include brake sensors. Are these hard to replace ? THanks!
  11. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I knew my brake wear sensor wire broke a while back and i just left it alone knowing that i must replace it, SO used the old electrical tape trick and connected the wire. I used a probe tester to test if my trick has worked and it did, But when i turn on my car the BRAKE LINING light still stays...
