981 and 982 brakes are different. You have to remove the caliper on the 982 to access the pads.

FCP Euro (https://www.fcpeuro.com/Porsche-part...b=8&d=15627&v=) has "OEM replacement" front and rear sensors for about $6 each. They also have rear pads and rotors pretty inexpensively, which is great if you have PTV and track your car.

I just ordered the sensors from FCP Euro. We'll see how that goes.

Since the car is still less than a year old, I wussed out and ordered "Porsche" parts for the rotors and pads, even though FCP Euro looked substantially less expensive. Probably wait a while before I start putting on major non-manufacturer parts. ( Although I did skip the N0 tires, LOL)

I can see why Porsche doesn't want people working on their cars.

Great to finally find somewhere with Sebro sensors for the 718.


We should have a thread that lists where you can purchase various parts for the car. It would be very useful to have that all in one location.

I've used FCP Euro many times for my BMWs and have had great service & pricing.
Their parts are also lifetime guaranteed.

Thanks! I thought that started with the 982. My 986 and a friend's 987 had the easy to change pads, I thought the 981 was the same.

LOL, not enough room for that list.
