Front brake pad wear sensors

Hi all,, I'm going to change my front brake pads this weekend and have been trying to find out how many wear sensors our cars have. (2012 250 amg sport) has anyone done this and can confirm if there is a sensor on both sides or just on one.
Cheers...

Well after replacing the pads, I can confirm that there is only one wear sensor on the front...it's on the drivers side (us English sit on the correct side of the car!) ...whilst I had my jack out, i checked out the rear pads and there is only one sensor there aswell.
