Question about Volkswagen Golf
This symbol is for worn brake pads. When the pads wear down the sensors make electrical contact with the disc rotor and the light comes on as the circuit is completed. Check out brake pads all round, inmost cases the pads at the front wear down first. Check symmetry of wear. The pads should wear symmetrically and evenly either side of the brake disc. If the pads are wearing on just one side of the disc check that the caliper body is not seized and that the brake guide pins are allowing freedom of movement. It is always a good idea to replace all the pads on one axle at the same time as this ensures even braking. Remember, after replacing pads to pump the brake pedal until stiff prior to moving off so that you can be sure that you can stop when you have to.
