Question about 2003 BMW 325
I had my rear brakes replaced (front brakes replaced not too long ago). The brake pad sensor is still on. Do I need to have the brake wear sensor replaced? Is that difficult to do? How much would that typically cost?
On my bmw 325i front pads changed,indicator on dash still on,help!!

I found that on the 325 xi if you replace the pads in time before it gets too low you can just reset the light on the dash but if the pads get too low were it starts to rub the little electrical sensor on the driver front wheel it now trigger an open loop and no matter what you try the light will never go off until that sensor is replaced (welcome to the bmw world $$$) lucky that sensor is cheap like $27

When you did your rear brake replacements, the sensor has also been replaced. It goes hand in hand with the brake pads. The brake pad sensor indicator light that is showing on your dash board will turn off eventually. Meineke had my brake pads replaced and all they had to do to turn the indicator off is press the brake multiple times until the light on the dash comes off...
Also, since you replaced the rear brakes, I'm assuming that the front brakes are in good shape...

SOURCE: Brake Pad Sensor
If the brake lining indicator light illuminated prior to brake pad replacement, the wear sensor should be replaced. You have to get down to the point where you remove the brake pads then carefully pry the wear sensor from the brake pad. It is not difficult. There is only one sensor in the front and one in the rear. The front one is approximately $20. (Checkout www.realoem.com. Enter your VIN and/or other vehicle info to obtain the part number and cost.)
