    brake pad wear sensor

    When replacing the brakes pads, does the wear pad sensor just pop in or does it need some type of glue to hold it in the u-shaped grove in the middle of the backing plate? What is the best way to remove a rounded off bleed nipple?
    Car is a 2000 STS.

    The pad wear sensor is held in place by a "U" shaped spring steel clip. No glue.

    Vise grips might loosen your messed up bleeder valve. It's easier to avoid that kind of mess than to correct it. Replace the bleeder with a new OEM part after you do get it out of there.

    Hello, thanks for the info. Will try with vise grips and see what happens.
