Exclamation 740iL...check Brake ?

So,

last week this message came on in the Check Control, it says check brake "something". ('97 740iL)


It seems like LIN?NES but I can't make out what it is and I'd like to know what you guys think (english is not my first language).

The break pads are fine, and we just replaced the rear brake pads, checked the sensors.





I hope the pictures are not too bad and you can help me.

Thank you in advance for youe help

Yeah, I've seen that before. Yes, it probably is your brake fluid. Did you change that too when you changed out the brake pads?

It says "check brake linings" - if you just changed rear pads check to make sure the sensor didn't come loose or cut the wires. (I had the rear sensor wires clipped by a wheel weight on right rear rim) Also check your front sensor (left front)
