Flickering brake-wear light.

It's about time for some news pads on the E420 ('95) as the brake pad wear light came on about a week ago. Already got the parts ordered and should be set to go in a couple of days.

One question: the light flickers off and on (sometimes very faint) even when just driving around with no pressure being applied to the brake pedal. How sensitive are these sensors? Does the flickering indicate a sticky caplier, or warped rotor perhaps?

Braking performance is sweet. Nice and linear, no shuddering or other associated shaking is discernable.

Thanks all!
