    Hi guys,

    Just a question about the dreaded 3 beeps! I get them when I am breaking. Along with the beeps, the warning light (!) on the dash flashes!

    Any clue as to what the issue is?

    Thanks!!

    Have you checked your brake fluid level? What nick are your discs/pads in?

    It could be as simple as an ABS wheel speed sensor - that should show up on VAG-COM if you can get a scan (that'd give a better idea of what it is)...

    Regards,

    Rob.
