Exclamation X 320i Rear brakes



2015 320 xi: 34 000Km and got the dash warning signal about brakes. As I don't drive with 2 feets at the same time, I tough it was a broken sensor. I went to BMW dealer in Brossard: rears pads and disks to replace.

Anybody had same mechanical defect??? 34 000Km, sounds not good to me!

The brake pad that has the sensor on it may have gotten stuck and not released, which in turn can throw that warning prematurely. Only way to check is look at your pads and rotors to see if they do need replacing or not.

Thanks Mikey 83. Rotors and pads were replaced. The inside pads needed to be replaced, but not the outside pads. I beleived that a false signal was sent to inside pads. Front rotors and pads in normal wear.

Dealers mechanic keep on theory that XDrive anit-lock brakes create to much pressure on rear brakes, bla, bla... . I'm pushing serously dealer because at that rate they will need replacement in an 1 1/2 year.

Honestly, there is one sensor on one brake bad for the front and rear. If it triggers again like you say prematurely then before replacing everything have a good look at whats left on them.

My rear pad got stuck which triggered the sensor and I really only needed to replace that one pad that had the sensor. My rotors and 3 bakes were fine but I had to buy the kit that came with 4 pads and the sensor replacement as the sensor is a one shot deal.

When I replaced the pads I put on plenty of brake grease on the slider so there will be no sticking in the future.
