I just ordered new brakes, rotos, brake sensors for my 98 528I ....I
started with to change the rotors with the psgr side front wheel...to
my disbelief, the brake sensor assembly is missing all together. I
thought someone did cut off all together which is not the case. the
entire assembly is missing ! I have sensors all the way around except
for the one mentioned side.
Does anyone has a similar situation ? I will post pictures soon.
None there. Once the rotor and barkes are reassembled, you want to put
a very thin coating of anti-sieze grease on the hub area where it
contacts the wheel hub center. Also a dab on the threads of each wheel.
Oh one other thing... You can/should use high temp silicone grease
(specially made for brakes) on the contact points between the pads and
calipers. But go very lightly. You don't want the grease to foul the
friction surfaces of the brakes, or... you ca imagine what will happen.
Best to err on the side of too little.
I believe that BMW specifies no grease to be used on the caliper slide
pins. In any case that is what I do and have never had a problem there.
The calipers ride on rubber bushings on those 2 pins. No real need for
you can re-use the old sensors if you are careful in removing them from the
old pads, and provided you have renewed the pads before the warning lamp has
come on.( IE: the sensors have not been damaged)
although having said that, the new sensors are dirt cheap anyway.
