Product Details

Electronic Pad Wear Sensor by Carlson®. The pad wear sensor will illuminate the brake light on the dash, alerting you that brake pad replacement is required, and allowing enough time to make repair before rotor damage or complete brake failure occurs. This sensor is made to OE specifications for perfect fit and function.

The brake pad wear sensor is mounted on the brake pad and routed through the caliper. The sensor contacts the brake rotor when the brake pad wears to a predetermined thickness, signaling the light on the dash so the driver can be alerted to the need for brake pad replacement. The sensor is positioned in the pad to leave enough thickness to allow time for the repair to be made. However, if the warning is ignored and the vehicle continues to be driven, the pads can wear to the point that the backing plates contact and destroy the rotors with subsequent brake failure. Carlson Quality Brake Pads developed, designed, and manufactured this high-quality and extremely durable brake pad wear sensor to meet or exceed OE specifications for excellent operating performance. Like other brake pad wear sensors, this component is designed to 'fail' as brake pads wear and should be changed whenever the pads are replaced.
