Nelson, to the forum. Hope you come back often.

Maybe, ask a dealer/mechanic what it means or pull off all the tires and get a brake inspection. The light means something.

Is this a common problem for your model or other models?

Brake lining is just your brake pads. You both will need the OEM Pagid pads in the near future. (very near) Goto bavauto.com and look up front and rear brake wear sensors, buy both (they are under 10$) and have them replaced when u get the pads replaced, cause once that light goes on the brake sensor circuit is completed and to close it u need a new sensor... hope this helps! ttyl

that helps a lot actually, because I was thinking something completely different.
I think I might need a new FluxCapaciter soon too. Damn things just about run out! LOL(Im joking, for those of you who are dumb and have no sense of humor or any movie knowledge)

if you know you have good brakes then just ignore the light, cause it most likely wont go off until you pull the bulb out of the cluster.

my "Brake Lining" light will come on for a minute at max, then will go away, or blink for a second, same with the brake fluid light, that blinks more then stays on though. Flux Capaciter is gonna cost only 4.75 to fix, should be done soon.

i replaced my brake lining sensor when i did my brake job and the light still hasnt gone out, and it's on all the time. the only thing keeping me from pulling the bulb out is that i dont think its worth the trouble cause it doesnt bother me that much.
