2004 clk320 brake wear sensor question

Hi all,

Just joined and I have a question regarding the pad replacement in my 2004 clk 320. Do I need to replace the wear sensors when I replace the pads and will that reset the message when I do or is there somthing I need to do in order to reset the message?

Hi tmm - welcome to the forum.

It seems to be the accepted wisdom to always replace the wear sensor when a pad is replaced, if the wheel has one. Not all wheels have a sensor, and they are not expensive.

My understanding is that the fault message will (eventually) clear itself. If I am wrong about this, someone else will quickly correct me!

yes, in order to reset, you must run around the car 3x's backwards. and as usual, keyhole is correct.

My car (2006) only has sensors on the right side brake, none on the left brakes... Also the sensor wires are very thin and might break when pulling it off the old pads, so it's best to install new ones which you can get from AutohausAZ.

The Brake Light will turn off by itself if the sensor is GOOD.

Also besides running around backwards, bending over for the Dealer will always RESET the brake light! Hahaha
