    Can you get in there with an air line? Is there a wear indicator on the back pads? If so it might be worth giving the contact a squirt of electrical contact cleaner.

    ABS sensor I guess, the rears don't have a wear seasor. It's not just bad luck is it and that the front wear sensor (near side) has been set off by worn old pads?

    Wouldn't the abs light be on if it was an abs prob? Have you checked the brake fluid level?

    The most obvious thing here really is scan with fault codes too. I would have expected the ABS light to have stayed on.

    The ecu's in these are pretty intelligent, yeh it will save codes until they are wiped.

    I would check the fluid level and the sensor on the reservoir is working properly first

    just check freezing out there . i took caliper off must have taken while to get into system but fluid was below sensor. topped up and pumped brakes with engine on. has gone down again but not as much will keep eye on it. lost lot of fluid on because i had to take off to rewind pot and was stiff. dont think it leaks done 150 miles since change brakes are bang on.

    There should be a max and min mark on the side of the reservoir, if you have disconnected the caliper I would check its definately not leaking to be on the safe side
