Brake Pad Sensors

I am putting brake pads all the way around my 2007 Touareg 6cyl 3.6 liter. I want to know if I can skip the brake pad sensors and just put the new pads on my vehicle. Please let me know ASAP! Thank You

Vinny, if your sensors have not given you a warning on the MFI they are still working and probably could be used again but it's not advisable unless you willing to deal with possible troubles later. To replace pads, sensors need to be unplugged which can be a bit of a challenge to do without damaging them. Best to replace them.

Don't cheapskate - replace them.

And have you actually measured the brake discs/rotors' thickness to see if they are still serviceable. The chances are you need new discs/rotors too.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]
