BMW 320D E90 brakes replacement process
The bonnet was opened and raised and the service was underway. The brake reservoir cap was opened.
The wheels were removed. At each wheel, the brake calipers were removed from the brake disc. The brake pads, which are held inside these calipers are also removed
The brand new Brembo brake pads were installed into the brake calipers. The front right brake pads and the rear left brake pads are connected to a wear sensor. When the brake pads are worn enough for the brake sensor to touch the brake disc, the brake warning lamp is triggered inside the instrument cluster. These brake sensors are also replaced with sensors from Brembo.
All the wheels are mounted back to the car and the car is lowered to the ground. It is then taken for a test drive to confirm that the work was done successfully.
