Brake wear Indication?
I recently posted a thread about replacing/upgrading the front brake pads and whilst looking at the potential replacements noticed that the pads have an electrical cable attached to them.
So, I had a look in the workshop manual and it is indeed a brake wear indicator! Now, that means my pads are in theory ok, as I haven't had an indication on the dash (a yellow circle with dsahes around it).
However, is this a reliable indication and is it indicating minimum permitted wear or that the pads are well and truly sha**ed. If this is the case am I better off replacing the pads before I get the indication?
