    Default Front Pad Sensors

    Are these re-usable or is it recommended to get new ones when changing front pads? And do the rears have sensors?

    Front Passenger side only, if the warning light has come on then needs to be replaced, otherwisr re-usable if it does break on removal.

    No mate, you can't reuse it if "it does break on removal".

    It could also be that the pad is wearing unevenly, the sensor is only on one of the pads (the outer one). So it may be that the inner pad has worn to the metal
