    The low level brake light came on the dash today. I aim to get them changed in the new year however the light annoys me. Is there any way to turn it off.

    Even with VCDS you couldn't disable the warning. You'd just clear the fault code but it would re-appear as soon as it detected the fault again... which, unless it's a faulty sensor, would be straight away...

    I think

    Cut the wire running into the back of the pads and short them together/secure safely.

    Wearing the pads down cuts through an embedded wire which then triggers the warning.

    What do you mean short them. Do you mean cut the wire coming from the pad and connect it back to where it plugs in from the loom? Like looping it back on itself so to speak

    How about just put in some new pads? saves all the messing about with fooling the brake pad wear sensors :)
