Sensor Came off from brake pad when chaging Pads...what do i do

Hey guys. I was chageing the rear brake pads on my 2006 3 series, and when i was taking the calipers off. I noticed the sensor wireing was torn. I have to buy a new sensor. But how do i install the wiring for the sensor, it looks like it leads up under the car...are there any write up's about it...any help would be great.....

its pretty much plug and play. follow the old leads and plug in the new one. one end just clips on to the brake pad.

Didn't you unplug it? I don't understand how it would fall off. If it did just look for a plug in around the wheel well and you should be able to simply plug the new one in.

You have to take a few screws out of the rear passenger side wheel well cover (not remove the whole thing) then you can get under and look up and see where the sensor connects. It took me a bit to figure it out, but wan't all that hard.
