Re: [DML] Brake resevoir and cap - was Body Care

It did not occur to me that someone could confuse the clutch cylinder
with the brake cylinder so I didn't know what he was saying. It does
make sense though, a new owner would NOT know where to look for
anything. I bet you are right, he found the clutch master. The BRAKE
master is under the rug in the bonnet. Remove the rug and then remove
the big round cap and you will see the top of the resovoir. The cap
should have a plug with wires connecting to it. Check the level in it
and if it is low then you know what the light is trying to tell you!
Adding brake fluid is a stop-gap measure. If it got that low it is
leaking and you MUST fix it. Get under the car and look up at the
master brake cylinder and check for leaking brake fluid. Also pull the
driver's side carpet and look there for any signs of brake fluid. Then
check each caliper and hose. BTW the black button in the center of the
cap on the brake resovoir is to test the brake light. With the
ignition on you press the button and the brake warning light should
light up.
