I used info written in your first post. Again, for 1LE, pads differ 7L6 698 151E. All other components are same.

That is the world of difference!!

A 1LE brake design isn't the 1LC pads...

Guys what is the best way to figure out which side brake to replace, without taking the brakes apart?

You are saying "side, which concerns me a little, as brake pads and rotors are normally always replaced as an axle set. Front or rear (or both) not one side at a time.

X2.

You must replace both sides on the same axle at the same time to maintain even braking performance.

Sorry guys for the absurd post. What I am trying to ask is there a wait to figure out if I need to replace the pads on the front right or left or rear left or right?

Thanks for the replies though.

Simply by removing the road wheel, you will be able to see the remaining pad thickness. Outer pads can be seen without removing the wheel however inner pads are more difficult to check.

A couple of points to remember about maintaining decent pad depth;
1. You are pulling up a vehicle weighting over two metric tons ( 2000 kg +)
2. Brake efficiency drops off as the pad reaches minimum thickness due to heating and reduce material mass
3. You will, due to normal brake bias, burn up fronts at about twice the rate of rears, however don't assume that the rears don't need inspection
4. New brake pads ( and even rotors ) are cheaper that panel work !!!

Remember whilst braking, a massive rush of adrenaline is far more enjoyable than massive panel job.

For me, a foreigner, your text is still ambiguous. (I understood hedditch and nooby though). Correct me, if I am wrong, the pads arrive in pairs.

Ok let me try again. I just want to know how do I figure out which pads to replace? The brake pad warning light has just come on and I am planning to place the order.
