Unless you are very careful/lucky, the wear sensors are single-use only. There is a U-shaped spring clip that fits around the sensor head and holds it in the pad cutout. If that spring clip pinged off into the undergrowth when taking the old pads out, like mine did, then a new wear sensor is the only option.

If your sensor is loose then I suggest that means the spring clip is missing - that was how mine felt before I replaced it. This has nothing to do with contacting the wear sensor - mine was thousands of miles from making contact (I was upgrading the discs to S ones).

The spring clip is wrapped around inside the groove in the sensor. Luckily I've just bought one so here it is:



It won't have a part number as it's part of the sensor as far as Mini is concerned.

I've not done the rear brakes but I'm fairly sure the sensor clips into the inner brake pad, just like at the front wheel.

Just for the record, I checked at the weekend when putting on my summer tyres - the rear sensor does go into the inner (moving) pad, just like the front one.
