When you replace the brakes on a Car like this you should also replace the sensor otherwise the Worn Brake warning light is not going to switch off.

Hi

The pads may need adjusting...However the physics behind all this says that when the pads are wet...there is reduced Friction...and hence lower braking power...this may be perceived as a worn out pad when it is wet....Try apply the brakes to dry the pads when driving and the sign should go off...

SOURCE: How To Change Rear Brake Pads on Audi A6 2006

Remove the tires, Remove the calaper bolts, (small heads on them 12mm or so) Remove calaper, Pads are setting in a holder. Lube new pads with litheum grease and place in holder. (look at old pads, one or both may have small metel tab on one end) If the new pads have the tab, put that pad where the old pad with the tab was. (ie. tab to the inside) Press pistion in with a 'C' clamp. If it won't go in easly, it may screw in. If the parking brake cable is hooked to the calaper, it probly screws in. Use large pliers to screw in calaper piston. Place calaper over pads and install bolts (lube bolts) Rember to pump brakes befor driving . to get a solid peddle.

In the past I had the same problem with new pads!
You must check up if new brake pads electrical wires are OK. Try as follows:
1. Disconnect only new brake pads wires from the vehicle electrical circuit.
2. Extract old brake pads wires from old brake pads.
3. Insulation wear cap from old brake pads wires.
4. Connect old brake pads wires on the vehicle electrical circuit.
5. Switch ignition ON and start engine.
Now the wear light must go off !

Audi A6 dash break indicator light came on. I had pads installed last Sept. Is it ok to drive till i get it serviced?


It should be okay. If you can, take a look through your rims at your brakes, and try to see how much pad is still present in contact with the rotor. The indicator light is only a warning to get you to change the brakes.

Brake pad wear warning light on after new pads fitted without pad wear sensors

BRAKE LIGHT


This light should turn off if you replace the pads with pads that have the indicator wire on them. The light truns on when you wear the pads down to the wires and the wires break and cause an open circuit that turns on the light. If your new pads have the wires and are installed correctly, the light should turn off by itself.
