A light in the dashboard turns on today and I have no idea what is the symbol for? is like a circle with 3 rectangles in line on each side this is a BMW 318i, 1996


This is the brake wear indicator. When the brake pads get too thin, this sensor, which is mounted in the brake pad backing on the front left wheel and the rear right wheel, touches the rotor and wears through, grounding out the contacts and illuminating the light.
Once the light is lit, you will need to buy a new sensor as well as new brake pads. The sensor is not expensive.
First step is to examine the brake pads and determine if you need front pads or rear pads or both. Don't be surprised if you need new rotors as well as pads. Check for a significant lip at the outer edge of the rotor. If the pads have worn in the sides of the rotor more than about 1/16", you are due for rotors.
You cannot go wrong with BMW branded pads. They are safe and work great, but they are really dirty. If you want to try other brands, read the reviews. Some squeak and some fade.
I use Mexican made Brembo rotors. They work well but they rust quickly, so the brakes squeak a bit the first time you press them after washing the car or driving in the rain. More expensive rotors or BMW branded rotors don't rust so much, but they cost a lot more and don't necessarily last any longer.
After replacing the pads, turn the key to the On position and leave it on for about 90 seconds before starting the car to reset the brake pad warning light.

Can you show me the picture of brake lining wear and explain what that is? For Mercedes C230 2002


I can't show you a picture of brake lining wear but I can explain what it is. Brake lining wear is your brake pad wear. If the instrument cluster is showing "brake lining wear' ' visit workshop' it means your brake pads have worn down and are now at the brake pad wear sensor.

My mercedes E320 write in the display that i shall visit workshop because of break lining wear, is it dangerous to drive the car now? and what is exactly break lining wear?


Your car has a sensor on the brake components which detects when there is low brake life. Assuming your brake system is functioning normally; there will be no initial safety hazard/danger. You should have a professional inspect brakes ASAP because if you wait too long there may be additional damage that could have been avoided with a more expedited inspection.

Changing rotors and brakes on ford expedition 99


I also have a 1999 model. What parts you want to use really depends on how much money you can spend. You can have the rotors turned (recut) but it takes time and if you want to keep the vehicle; new rotors will start out with the same potential life. Recut rotors will be different thicknesses and thin rotors will fail more quickly. You could end up with 4 different thicknesses.

The old brake linings will show how the calipers are working. You want even wear. You can also have Emergency brakes linings inside the rear rotors. With ABS and Traction control the wheel sensors can be fouled with brake debris so it is important for the E brakes to be in good shape.

I prefer Ceramic pads. They cost more, but are more heat resistant for towing and do not show brake dust. At least put them in front as most of the wear is in front. There is also a COP car pad with also works well but shows dust as it wears.

Tips for removal- Rust can be a big problem. The rotors will swell around the hubs in back of the rotor. A Dremel or cold chisel is necessary to remove the rust on the hub. Plenty of Rust solvent is needed. Eye protection is a must. You will need to draw in the Caliper pistons so you should have a big C clamp (Big Lots store) and use an old lining pad to press the pistons back. Also remove the brake rmaster cylinder cap before pushing in brake pistons.

New hardware is recommended and lube the slides with high temperature grease. Thats about it. Good Luck to you.

Did you replace the brake pad sensor? If they have not been replaced then you will continue to see the dashboard telling you to replace the brakes.

Brake warning lining wear


Yes the parking brake uses a small set of brake shoes that act on a drum built into the rear rotor. There is no wear sensors on the parking brakes. There are however wear sensors on the front and rear brake pads. If your brake pad warnig light is on I would have the service brake pads inspected. 82210425
