2002 Mercedes-Benz C240 Question: Brake Wear Light

The brake wear light just turned on. How long, either in time or mileage can I go nad still be safe before the actual repair. -
Answer 1
more then likely u are at about 2/32ends left on your pads i would wait to longe before getting them replaced, having no brakes not a good feeling. -
Comment 1
are you suggesting that when the light comes on, its an automatic indicator that the pads are at 2/32nds? Also, does that indicator light mean front or back or both? -
Comment 2
yes it is indcating that you are around 2/32nds, you would have to check the pads to see which ones are due, it has sensors for both front and back but does not indicate which ones so you are going to have to look at the pads, you should also replace the sensors to they usally break when you rmove them. -
