    Parking brake malfunction warning

    I've had this warning come up on my car as soon as i turn the ignition on for over a year but the brake itself functions perfectly. Now I've got to look at sorting it due to the new Mot rules. Anyone got any ideas? Both motors work, brake holds no problem but still getting the error

    Hi guys, replaced my stoppers last week (all pagid parts), haven't upgraded yet unfortunately. But the squeal from my fronts are horrendous, apparently a common issue for these cars and audis line is the brakes need to be warm to reduce the squealing.
