Mk5 General Area / Brake Pad Warning Light
« Last post by lennshow66 on Today at 05:13:38 PM Started by lennshow66  »
Hi all,

Just replaced all my brakes but now the warning light is on the dash.

The previous owner of the car or some garage looks like they have cut the connector to the brake pad warning sensor off.

What options do I have here?

I can imagine that any change from stock would be regarded as a mod and is best disclosed. Some insurers like Greenlight don’t charge extra for changes to wheels / brakes / suspension.

If you are going to do it buying a rear end crash written off donor car would probably be the best way to go. Would mean you had all the parts sat ready to go...

Or just live with it being a LHD in the UK...

Not much of a whiz with DIY but managed to hardwire dashcam

And then also fitted leather cover to my cloth armrest

That makes sense, thanks for that. I’ll go into my local dealer tomorrow and see what the damage is!! If it’s to expensive then I’ll look at second hand. Is the suspension in the GTI and the Edition 30 exactly the same?

1. People that treat the lanes on the motorway as 60-70-80
2. People who can't maintain a consistent speed so you end up overtaking them over and over again as the speed up past you, drop in then slow down

Point 2 is especially annoying when you are on cruise control and don't want to speed up to pass them..

Point 1 - isnt it more like 56-58-100?
So I went to change mine today thinking it'd be a nice easy job. It was, there isn't one! Which is a bit of a bugger as it means I'm going to have to delve into the depths and change the main thermostat.  :doh: if anyone needs a genuine inline thermostat drop me a pm £20 posted. By the way mines an 06 manual BWA.
Performance Modifications / Re: VWR Intake disappointing

Thank you @Pudding for explaining how you corrected the issues with the VWR intake. Mine fits a bit better, not sure why. I do think that the engine mounts need to be reinforced so the engine doesn't rock as much. My canister pops out if I don't fit the pipe in a certain position. :\

Some insurers want winter tyres declaring, so a wheel change I would at least let them know.
