    hi thanks for your help
    yes i have checked the fluid at first the yellow low brake pads light was coming on
    then it started with the red warning light so i booked it in to have the pads done
    at the dealers £120.00 but they phoned me and said they could,nt find anything wrong with the brakes
    they did,nt charge anything but i,m no the wiser
    i suppose i could re- book into the dealers but i feel a bit stupid

    I would check if there is a lip on the discs. It seems to cut into the wear indicator wires once the discs get to a certain level of wear.

    cheers dan
    i will have the wheels off today and check that
