Hi all. New to the forum and in need of help if poss. Ive a 1996 1.8 model and must admit to being very wet behind the ears when it comes to mechanics. However after latest £300 bill for repairs I've decided its time to start learning the basics and then see how it goes from there. The repairs which were carried out were. New front and back brake pads fitted, an oil leak fixed and the replacement of a split CV boot. Today was the 1st day driving the car at distance since the repairs and 2 lights have appeared on the dash which after reading through my manual I've found to be brake related. The 1st is a yellow ABS light and the second is a flashing red Exclamation similar to the handbrake light. Ive checked the brake fluid level and it seems fine and thats where my ideas on what the prob could be come to an end. One other thing that could be important. When applying brakes, just before the car comes to a halt a small grinding noise occurs. Could this just be something to do with the pads bedding in so to speak? Any ideas folks. Any help appreciated. Matt.
