Which model Galaxy do you actually have? Your profile and avatar say Mk3 but on an '04 plate it would have to be a Mk2?!

 I wouldn't panic whichever model you have - The warning light comes on with at least 1000 miles to go - check the pads out but don't panic.

I got about 10000 out of mine after the light. Means changing the discs too though so if they're decent it's not advised to be so ruthless 🤓🤔

Should be able to get that done for £80 or so
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.
