Re: Renault Scenic 2006 diesel 1.5 braking fault light on

If the brake fluid is low it could be that the brake pads are just about worn out.

As the brake pads wear down the pistons in the brake calipers move further out and this takes away some of the fluid from the reservoir so the low fluid warning you got could just be this.

Alternatively you could have a fluid leak, check on the ground under the car, to see if there are any new drips or pools of fluid when the car has been standing for a while (overnight)

If you are still not sure or worried call into a garage and have it checked out....maybe you should do this anyway in case it is worn brake pads.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.
