    Get them from www.autovaux.co.uk

    Will be either a Vauxhall product, or matching OE.

    Did this light also have 3 lines either side of the circle along its circumference?

    Yep, that's the low brake pad warning light.

    However, it doesn't mean to say the pads have worn down. The wires to the sensors could be faulty.

    Ultimately you really need to have a good nose around and visually inspect all of the pads to see if they're worn.

    I believe that the sensor is only wired to the front pads. VX assumed that the front and rears would need replacing about the same time, and the front would wear out first and give an early warning for the rears.
