This part is listed by BMW as BMW part number 34351163066 (34-35-1-163-066) and is described as Rear Brake Pad Sensor Wire for E39 Sedan (525i, 528i, 530i, 540i, M5) and E52 Z8 Roadster.Not for E39 Wagon models
Brake Wear Sensors are key safety components that allow worry-free driving without the need for constant visual inspection of your brake pad material. Once the brake lining dash light is illuminated on your dash, this is a warning of thin brake pad material. Pads should be replaced as soon as possible, and the sensor is a required replacement once the brake lining dash has come on.
- Precise factory fitment
- Worry-free driving until dash light illuminates
- One sensor required per axle
TECH NOTE: On a majority of applications the brake lining light can be reset easily by installing a new sensor and turning the ignition to the second position (without starting the car) for approximately one minute - or until the light goes out. Refer to your Bentley service manual for further instruction if this method doesn't work.
