if you replace pads, you replace sensors as well. There are two sensors, one for the front and one for the rear.

Is your brake light illuminated on your dash? If not then you can reuse your old sensors but if you do you need to replace either one or both. There is one for the front driver side and one for the rear passenger.

Not necessarily.

We've discussed this issue to death. You do not need to replace the sensors if they haven't been tripped.

I would reuse the old sensors until the light goes on and then replace.

I just get rid of the sensors so I don't have to bother with them. Much easier that way.
