Did some brake pads used to have sensors on the side which are now not added
No,there is what is called a sqealer, that lets you know the brakes need changing and are wore out,and some after market brakes do not have this.
Agreed. It's not an electrical sensor on older cars, I call it a 'sounding tab' that causes a squeal by rubbing on rotors before pad rivets dig in to rotor. I know of no such thing on drum brakes though
That's great I have been looking for pads with this thing on the side and of course its not necessary, so can I snap it off and drive the car while Im waiting for the new pads
Its not drum brakes definitely discs
You can break the tab,but don,t run them long,will damage the rotors,
