Electronic Brake Wear Sensors are an added safety feature on many vehicles used to warn a vehicle’s driver when their brake pads are near the end of their service life.

Bendix’s range of Electronic Brake Wear Sensors are designed to be a direct OE replacement and cover over 900 applications. Electronic Brake Wear Sensors are mounted on the brake pad on any combination of the four wheels and may have sensors on 1 to 4 corners of the vehicle.

When the brake pad wears and the Electronic Brake wear sensor makes contact with the rotor a warning is given usually in the form of a light on the vehicles dashboard.

Wear sensors are designed to break or complete a circuit as the brake pad wears and hence are not re-useable and need to be changed whenever the brake pads are replaced or the warning light indicates.


  • Electronic Brake Wear Sensors should be changed whenever the pads are replaced
  • If they have made contact with the rotor they cannot be reused
  • Even if they have not made contact they should still be replaced with every pad change
  • Materials become worn during their service life and can affect their functionality
  • To ensure performance throughout the life of the pads they should be replaced with a new sensor
