Re: brake warning lining wear
Yes the parking brake uses a small set of brake shoes that act on a drum built into the rear rotor. There is no wear sensors on the parking brakes. There are however wear sensors on the front and rear brake pads. If your brake pad warnig light is on I would have the service brake pads inspected.

Check the level of the brake fluid. It's likely low and needs topping up. As your brakes wear more fluid goes into the lines to compensate for the wear. You will probably need to replace brake pads soon. Hope this helps.
I can't show you a picture of brake lining wear but I can explain what it is. Brake lining wear is your brake pad wear. If the instrument cluster is showing "brake lining wear' ' visit workshop' it means your brake pads have worn down and are now at the brake pad wear sensor.
hi from uk the stop/handbrake light has two warning functions it will illuminate when hand brake is applied or is left on whilst driving or not fully off position ?? the other function is it is warning you that your brake fluid in the reservoir is low/requires topping up ? if it is low ? this could be due to a fluid leak ?either from pipes or wheel cyl's/calipers ? OR ? just that as your b/pads and shoes wear lower then fluid from reservoir displaces from res to cyl's to compensate for wear so may i suggest you 1st check fluid level+top up if low? then check for leaks as above more important have your brake pads and rear shoes or pads if fitted checked for wear/safety i advise this considering age/milage? of car and if you have no record of being checked/replaced recently? if your brake pads are fitted with low pads wear indicators this will also give warning hope this helps? good luck !
Hi I am vortash .. check that the sensor lead is not damaged at the brake calliper and check that the brake pads havent worn down again ?,, If they have I would suspect that you have a stiff calipper cylinder that keeps pressure on the pads against the Disc or drum and it needs freeing off and smearing of copperite grease you may check this by driving a few miles then feel the back wheels if they are warm then the pads are rubbing ..( be careful that can get hot enough to take your skin off if you touch them , you should be able to smell the linings also if it is this problem .. hope this helps regards Vortash
