    Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Pads:

    The Part No. ACT753 Akebono Ultra Premium Ceramic Disc Brake Pad Kit is NOT an "Exact Fit" as advertised. The wire harness length of the electronic wear sensors is MUCH shorter than OEM. Also the "Premium Stainless Hardware" is no where near an "Exact Fit" nor the quality of the OEM hardware- Be sure to save your old hardware because you may need to re-use your old hardware in order to complete the installation.

      Hi, have the issues reported with the brake wear sensors being too short with this item been corrected?

        Hi Andy! I understand your concern on the brake wear sensor being small compared to the OEM for this brake pad kit. I have forwarded a request to the appropriate team to check if its corrected. In the meantime I can help you with an alternate kit that fits your vehicle. Please revert with the vehicle's year, make, model and engine size and I will help you with an alternate brake pad kit.

        Hi Andy! I received an update from our product specialist that the harness length has remained the same length along with the break hardware.

    • Q:

      I installed the ultra premium ceramic disc brake pads with no issues, however the sensors that fit my Cadillac Seville STS are 12 inches shorter than the stock ones. I had to purchase new brake sensors. Your packing and marketing claims that the box contains the necessary sensors if applicable. Please work with the manufacturer to resolve the issue. Thanks - Andrew D.

    • Q:

      Does this product comes instrutions for the wear sensors
      Asked on 7/3/2012 by clint from wilmington ohio

        No, this Akebono Ultra Premium Ceramic Disc Brake Pad Kit - part# ACT753 does not come with the instructions on wear sensors. However, we could provide you with the details on brake wear sensors. The Brake Pad Wear sensor, or brake wear indicator, is an added safety feature on many vehicles used to warn a vehicle’s driver if their brake pad’s life becomes too low. The Brake Pad Wear sensor is mounted on the brake pad and routed through the caliper in any combination of the four wheels. Vehicles have sensors on one to four wheels. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.
