Not really - bc the old sensor is very brittle, it is hard to reuse. You could "bypass" the sensor by cutting off the sensor short up by teh connector - then solder the two wires together. Some people on older cars do that. But then your pad light will never come on. And on our 1er's the rear pads go fast(bc of the DTC).
