Hi everyone. Do the brake pads have a wear indicator that squeals when the pads are worn through?


Im driving a 1996 1.9d. Im getting a loud squeal/whistle from the front right wheel.

Hello there, i`ve never came across pad sensors that squeel. If the pads wear down to the sensor then a warning light will come on in the dash board, however that will only hapen if they are still connected. My van had the sensors unplugged at the calipers and the pads were worn down to the metal when they started squeeling. Obviously the previous owner never wanted to part with £60 on new pads.....T:

Hi guys, thanks for the replies. Checked it out today, piston had jammed on the brake pads. Stripped, changed pads, and regreased. All good. Thanks to my buddy jared for all the help. :D. Without him I would have been lost.


All fixed now, no screetch! Excellent. A:
