View Full Version : On cars equiped with brake pad sensors, is that front AND rear or just front?

Need to change the rear brakes on my 01 2.8 quattro and didn't see any wires protruding from the pads. I have the wear sensors on the front but not the back? Does that sound about right? I have seen on other sites that the rears COULD have wear sensors, but like I said, didn't see them...

Also didn't see anything in ETKA that would suggest rear sensors...

Awsome, thanks!! The mintex site was showing the rears as having sensors but I don't ever recall seeing them!! Nor can I find anyone ELSE that makes them!

Just remember to pick up a caliper piston tool for the rear, if you cant get one you can get away with using needle nose pliers

Yeah, I have any and all tools you would ever need to work on an A4, except a flywheel locking tool...

^ Where did you buy your brake pads from?

I haven't bought the pads yet, but probably on Ebay is where I will go... They are fairly cheap on ebay!
