Hi..there..

The brake lining wear warning should automatically reset itself once new sensors have been fitted front/back,it should actually reset pretty much straight away to be honest.done them before and alot of other models mercedes are of the same..as once the old ones make contact with the disc then they have to be replaced as they cause a short to ground/disc which brings the warning on,normal practice really is even if the sensor hasnt made contact with the disc and the pads are to be renewed the sensors can be done at the same time - have they ensured the sensors/plugged in properly / double check they are the correct sensors / make an inspection of the harness further up in which the sensor is connected to be sure the wiring isnt damaged,broken..if all seems ok they can try disconnecting the battery negative and reconnect and see if that works..but its worth at least ensuring all sensors as above are rechecked..if that warning doesnt reset....i do hope this helps
