Thanks smile Next question, I have an alarm that sounds mostly when I turn a corner. The stop light comes on and it says brake fault. after a bit of googling I believe it to be break fluid but when I have checked the level it only a little below max. Would that make the warning light come on when its not level ie going round a corner?

Thanks again

ok now I look like I'm talking to myself as the reply seems to have gone !

Best getting it checked out properly. Low brake fluid shouldn't give warning but you may have brake warning sensor on your brakes like Skoda that show when brake pads are low. Make sure cap is screwed on if you have undone it.

I used to have a Renault many years ago and as I turned a bend on the M53, it told me to stop the car and switch off the engine. It turned out to be a loose wire was dangling down that touched the chassis as I turned. Gave me a fright but easily fixed.
I'm not saying that's what is wrong with yours, but as stanb said, get it checked out.

Hey, I can pop my machine on it and see if it pulls up any fault codes or any pending codes if you'd like.

Saturday is great thanks. No nothing stays on. It just beeps and the Stop light comes on but then goes straight off. Mostly when I turn right for some reason and sometimes on a hill which is why I thought it maybe a fluid level

Okay, Have you tried topping up the level to see if it cures it? As the pads wear down the level will drop so it could be a sign that the pads are wearing low however topping up the fluid will resolve the issue for a few more hundred or possibly thousand miles.

No not yet. That was the reason for the post as I was unsure where the reservoir was. Will top it up tomorrow tomorrow and let you know how it goes. Rear brake pads and parking brake where fixed only a few days ago to pass the mot. So they "should" be ok.

Filled the brake fluid this morning ( who the hell put it in such an awkward place to fill ! ), drove round in it most of the day and the alarm didn't go off !! Yay smile

So thanks for the offer off putting it on your machine but I think the problem is solved.

( Could do with someone giving it a quick look over to see if there's any other problems or things that may need doing in the near future if your interested ? Obviously will pay you for your time smile )
