    The wear sensors are separate, and therefore also need replacing.

    A quick fix until u get the parts - cut the end off nearest to your brake pad and splice the wires together , this will knock the light out.

    i had new front pads fitted today. I have just joined both wires together on the sensor, just for now. This has turned the light out.
