I want to replace the brakes' How???

Hey Guys

I'm new here, and I have some questions

I just got a new owner of a BMW 320i E90 (motor N46) year 2006 and I need to change brake discs and brake pads, front and back. I would be interested to hear about any chance to have some good / smart tips, which I thought you’ll share with me. Especially around the installation of wear indicator.

Thank you in advance.

Thank you very much!
But I have already seen it. What I am most interested in is around, the wear indicator. Is it any adjustments around it? Also when I switch the back Brake rear, and there is a back-handbrake. What should I do with the back-handbrake?

There are no adjustments with the brake sensor.
You take the brake sensor off of the old pad and put it on the new pad.

You do nothing with the hand brake.
The hand brake is a drum brake that is inside the rotor.
The hand brake has nothing to do with the rear brake pads.
This is why I laugh at the dealers that are blaming the squeaking of the brakes on the hand brake since they are completely independent devices.

It's pretty much like saying,

Person going into the Dealer--"When I hit my hand with a hammer, my hand hurts"
Dealer--"Oh, that's because you are wearing pants instead of shorts."
