Move the steering back and forwards a bit to let the lock pins come free allowing you to turn the key on. If that doesn't work consider if you have the correct key and if so consider puffing some powered graphite into the key slot to lubricate the pins in the tumbler.

SOURCE: front brake pads 2005 Skoda Octavia 1.9td

I have no idea what a skoda octavia is, but I know brakes are brakes. You have 2 bolts holding the pads in a slide, the bolts have threads only at the top, the rest is the slide, pull those bolts, if that doesn't release the slide, take out the 2 bolts holding the caliper on there, pull the slide out the other way. replace the pads, make sure they go back in the way came out. Put the bolts back on, tighten them up, you should be all set. The pad thickness sensor is just a ground, when the wire hits metal, it turns on a light, It should go off when it is not touching anything. You should have squealers on there too, they give an audible screech telling you it is time for some new pads. Hope this helps.

2003 skoda octavia 19 tdi turn on ignition key just clicks do this 2 or 3 times then it will start this has only happened since ive had the clutch and flywheel changed


Hi
Sounds to me like you've got a faulty solenoid on your starter motor which could have been damaged whilst the gearbox was taken off to do the clutch and flywheel or the wiring to the starter motor or battery hasn't been tightened up enough
Hope this helps Nick

Skoda Octavia Deisel Automatic, starter won't engage


its a VW for any american mechanics reading this and a skoda is now a glorified VW but a very nice car ,now as for this fault then iam at a loss as these cars never go wrong but you havent stated if the starter is clicking and not turning or if the relay is clicking but as this is a auto version it could be the inhibitor switch but without my head under the bonnet or more info i cannot really tell you ,could even be the immobilisor or the electrical switch on the back of the ignition key ,If you cannot find the fault then you can manually overide the starter by making sure vehicle is in park ,turn ignition on the using a piece of wire or a small screwdriver to bridge the fat terminal with the small one this will activate the starter to start it so you can get it to a garage.Now certain year vehicles will immobilise themselves if you change the engine oil as this turns on a sensor that engine is low on oil and this will stop vehicle from starting and only the dealer has the software to release it but if this is your case i know a way around this .
