Congrats!!I did all four brakes last weekend. Started at 10am and finished at 4pm. Fairly straightforward if you know what you're doing. That said, I didn't paint the calipers. Total parts cost was less than 800.00, which is 2200 less than the job at the nearest dealer, plus I have the satisfaction of knowing I'm helping her purrrrr by being inside her. But I did use two types of cleaner to get the calipers really nice and bright red again. No more squeeky brakes! I say go for it.
The sensors are good, but the act of removing them often damages one. At least for me. Since all 4 sensors are on 1 circuit, there is nothing to tell you which. Buy inexpensive ones, and replace them.And I was thinking of skipping the brake pad wear indicator since my brake pad warning light is not on. I'm assuming my indicators are still good. Is that a fair assumption?
I linked to the Textar pads above since someone said Porsche uses those and rebrands them. They're the same part number.Depending on the type of pads you may need to bypass the sensors. Basically not all pads have the brake wear sensor port to plug-in. So you need to short the two wires for the brake sensor and tuck it away nicely.
