    Surely it has to do with the braking .. As all circles with brackets on the outside are brake related (orange or red)
    This is a right mystery!

    Brake light bulbs might be on their way out/ corroded/ loose. Also could be related to a faulty brake light switch so worth doing a VCDS scan.

    Shooting in the dark here (as usual) but when pressing the check button in the dashboard (the button next to the odometer/trip reset button) doesn't it introduce this symbol? I see your screen has a bunch of pixels missing so it might be unreadable, but maybe you could make something out.

    Usually when pressing the check button, it introduces a bunch of symbols and says what they're about, but I cannot remember whether it introduced all of them or just the more critical ones. Worth a shot I guess.

    This is the Brake Light Failure symbol......IIRC the rear bulbs have two filaments inside each bulb (side lights and brake lights).
