my brake disk has worn some 2 mm this the reason my brake light keeps coming on round corners? the pads are fine but i think the disk perhaps needs changing.

Cheers

sounds like loose cable if fluid is topped... and fluid is good, so there is not water in it?

you cant really see if there is water, get it tested.dont know wheter this will sort it... is in corsa system wich says when there is water in brake fluid? some cars have it, dont know about corsa. its all about 2-3% of water and tester will show it. brake fluid should be changed like every 2 years, otherwise its not optimal...

what i need the answer to is would the brake light come on if the brake disk was worn? it has a lip around it and is uneven would this make the brake light come on around corner.
