Replace Brake Pads / Sensor Rear for X3 (E83)

Parts and fluids included in this package:

Original BMW brake pads assure optimized brake performance. These long-lasting pads provide distinguished braking results regardless of prevailing conditions. Even in extremely cold or wet weather Original BMW brake pads perform precisely. The brake lining recipe is exactly matched to the brake disc and is naturally asbestos free. They also keep brakes from rubbing and squeaking and reduce fading, the tendency of braking power to weaken at high temperatures. In combination with Original BMW brake discs, these brake pads also offer the most precise match to the brake discs installed and for optimal functionality in key control systems such as the Antilock Braking System (ABS) and the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC).

Brake Service Warning Signs

Sounds that include loud screeching or metallic scratching can signify potential brake system wear and warrant a trip into our Lake Bluff BMW service center.

Struggle to Stop

If your brakes prove unresponsive when pressing the pedal, then you need to immediately schedule a brake inspection with our team and halt plans for future trips.

Braking Delay

Does it take you a longer period to reach a complete halt? Delays in braking can prove dangerous for both you, other drivers and surrounding pedestrians. If you notice this issue, we strongly recommend consulting our certified mechanics.

Recommended Brake Maintenance Cycle

While brake servicing can differ depending on the vehicle you operate, area you drive in and other commuting lifestyle factors, we generally recommend maintaining a regular brake inspection period. A general rule of thumb is 12,000 miles to schedule your next inspection, but it's advisable to consult your owner's manual and connect with our service team directly to arrange an inspection schedule that works best for you.
