Question what does this smbol mean?

Can anyone tell me what the e-brake symbol in yellow means?

Nevermind...I found the answer.

When the brake fluid falls below a specified level, the brake fluid level warning light will illuminate (in some cases, a message is displayed on the dashboard). The warning indicator will come on while the brake system still has enough fluid to properly function. This way, it acts as a precursor to the brake hydraulic system red warning light, which indicates a potentially catastrophic failure of the brake hydraulic system.

When my fluid was at min (because I was bleeding the brakes), it turned red. Maybe yellow is in-between, but that doesn't make sense, as the fluid goes down in the master as the pads wear. Lots of what BMW does doesn't make sense I guess (like getting a bulb failure code when the bulb still works)

It could also mean that your brakes are due for a replacement.

Nope. When it is red and stays on constantly is the notification that the brake pads are in need of replacement.
