Clio Campus 07 Reg - Brake Pad Replacement

Good Evening,
I'm a fairly new driver so my knowledge about cars is limited. But it has come to my attention to replace the brake pads as it's really squeaking when i press lightly to medium pressure but when i press fully down it doesn't make a noise, so i'm guessing theres a few mm left in the current pads.

I've been looking on euro carparts and wanted to buy the front Brembo pads. However there are two version:
This one with what i've been told has wear sensors:
http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Renault_Clio_1.2_2007/p/car-parts/regular-service/car-service-parts/brake-pads/?10174519A&1&51435740629032fe9dcfd5880967fcb8866df f84&000036

or this one:

So what I need answering is:
1) which out of the two should I get?
2) are the sensors hard to install?
3) is it hard to replace normal pads?
4) should I bother replacing all the pads including the rear while i'm at it anyway?

Any more info you would like to add will be appreciated

thank you!

Re: Clio Campus 07 Reg - Brake Pad Replacement

Take off the wheels you can then check the condition of the pads, cheap pads can screech but worn pads make a grinding sound when the pedal is pressed. You don't need to change any sensor there is a wear wire and plug on the pads, this connects to the loom. Have you a brake warning light on the dash? If the pads aren't too worn a little red grease or copaslip on the contact points and on the back of the pads often stops a squeak. Brembo are good pads, they're easy to change a big G clamp is useful but not essential. I always open the bleed screw before pushing in the piston. DON'T mess around with brakes if you’re not 100% sure of what you’re doing, you or someone else could wind up dead!

What I would do is get a friend that has done this befor to help, brakes need to be right for obvious reasons.

The only way if putting your reg number into the site doesn't help is to take a wheel off and see which are fitted, often the ones with the sensor can be used in
a non sensor car but it looks like they are totally different on your car so that wont work.

To much trouble to install sensor brakes on a non sensor car, forget that.

Not hard job to do but you do need to get it right so
get friend that knows how to help.

Replace at least complete front 4 pads or rear never just
one side preferably all 4 wheels at same time,
Brakes will very likely feel different at first and may lack power till they bed in so be careful after brake change.

Expert.
An "ex" is a has-been. A "spurt" is a drip under pressure.

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.

Plenty of videos on You tube showing basics of changing pads, it is one of the easier jobs on motors.

But as others have said, if you are not sure, do not guess at how things fit. Ask advice or get a mate who knows the job to help.
