Default Brake Pads on 2008 Clubman S

Hey Guys,

First time brake job on the Clubman and wandering if anyone who has done the pads can advise on on any tools needed and/or any tricks I should be aware of? Second question is that a number of the aftermarket pads I have been looking at list that they have no space for the rear sensor. Anyone know of any brands that do have the space for them? I figure the sensors were added for a reason, but I would still like to have some better pads if possible. Thanks in advance for the help!

The Jurid, Textar, Bosch and ATE brands should have the appropriate slot for the rear brake brake sensor.

Thanks for that! And for future reference of someone with the same question. EBC Green and Yellow series have them too.

True, you can always verify with the seller if the rear pads have a cutout for the brake pad sensor.
