• If the reservoir requires repeated topping-up this is an indication of a fluid leak somewhere in the system, which should be investigated immediately.
• If a leak is suspected, the car should not be driven until the braking system has been checked. Never take any risks where brakes are concerned.
IThe MAX and MIN marks are indicated on the brake fluid reservoir filler neck. The fluid level must be kept within 10.0 mm of the MAX level mark.
3 Carefully prise off the cap using your fingers, and inspect the fluid and filler neck. If the fluid is dirty the hydraulic system should be drained and refilled (see Chapter 6).
2 If topping-up is necessary, first wipe clean the area around the filler cap to prevent dirt entering the hydraulic system.
4 Carefully add fluid, taking care not to spill it onto the surrounding components. Use only the specified fluid; mixing different types can cause damage to the system. After topping-up to the correct level, securely refit the cap and wipe off any spilt fluid.
