Question about 2007 Mini Cooper
I have just had a brake service done on my mini at the mini dealers. Having new pads and disc put on the front, According to the computer the front disc need a new service in 37000 miles, the back disc need a service in 1500 mile. Is this normal are the the front and rear brakes covered by a different service, and do i require to book it in again, or have they just failed to reset the rear brakes.

Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

it may be time for new brake pads, and you usually want to replace your rotors when you change pads, you can get away with not doing and instead take it to a shop and get them "turned"
if you want to see for yourself if it's time for new brake pads just remove one of your wheels and look at your brake pads (they are the what actually make contact with your rotor) and if the pad itself is less than the width of about 2 or three credit cards, then it's time for new pads.
hope that was helpful....good luck!

SOURCE: how do I reset my
you can not reset it. all you have to do is go to the dealer and get a new sensor. once the sensor touches the disk it opens up the circuit, thus you have your brake pad warnning.

Did they replace the brake pad wear sensor? If so, try leaving the key in the on postion for 30-45 seconds (dont start the car) This is how we reset the lights on BMW's and the Mini's use a similar system for service lights
