    There should be a cable following a similar path to the front left brake line, but stopping at a socket, mounted to the same bracket as the brake line. The pad wear sensor plugs into that.

    It's a fairly lightweight, black cable.

    If you don't have that, I would guess either the cable has been ripped or cut off previously, or if you're lucky, just tucked away. You're probably looking at removing the wheelarch liner to hunt it down.
