: You will see it off and on as the wire is grounded on the rotor.

: Once it wears to the point of breaking the circuit, the warning will appear all the time. You need new pads.

: Front sensor is on the left wheel. Rear sensor is on the right wheel.

I have new pads and turned rotors but the repair apparently did not include sensors (non-dealer). Can I purchase the sensors and install them myself? Can the wires be clipped or will cause continuing warning signal as in my 325is?

: : The "Brake Lining" message appeared and then was off the next time I drove. Will this be the last time I see this? Or will it keep appearing until something is re-set?
