    Default Brake Pad Wear Sensors

    Hi all,

    I changed the pads and discs on my Vectra C last weekend and noticed that on the near side the wear indicator was just a loose frayed bit of wire swinging in the breeze and that the off side was completely missing from the connector on the leg.

    I have now got new wear sensors to fit but don't know which way they sit in the pads.

    On the pad end of the sensor there is a plastic block with one side flat and the other side has a raised, almost 'T' shaped piece.

    Which of these sides faces the disc?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards..,

    I found out why I couldn't see a wear indicator at all on the off side, there isn't one fitted.

    Not to worry, I now have a spare.
