    confused Brake Pad Sensor Replacement

    Just bought a new brake pad sensor (part no.24427919) and just taken the front wheel off to check they look the same but they look completely different. The plug on the car is blue and quite small whereas the new one is black and looks nearly double the size. Also the length of the new cable looks far too long.

    Any ideas?

    Is that not the connector for the other end , rather than the terminals in the pic ?
    btw u can do a kwik fix by snipping the wires and crossing them together , this will knock the light out.

    Agreed....I think that first pic does not show the brake pad sensor plug....Andy follow the original line from the sensor to the plug and follow the trail...the existent plug has to look the same as the new one that you bought.

    the blue plug comes from the rear of the brake pad and the grey one comes from somewhere near the front of the pad (cant really see exactly). The rear of the brake pad being the front edge of the disc.

    The fitting should be a push fit nipple which clips onto the brake pad near the caliper i think.
    The black plug on your new sensor is'nt the end that goes on the pad , it should have a fitting on the other end.

    Andy...I assume your wheel is off....take the old sensor out of the brake pad / caliper and follow the cord towards the end....it will lead you straight to the correct plug.
