Subaru Coupes/Sedans/Wagons 1985-1996 Repair Guide

Filling The System


The brake fluid reservoir is located on top of the master cylinder. Although no special procedures are needed to fill the fluid, the reservoir cap and surrounding area must be wiped clean of all dirt and debris before removing the cap. The slightest dirt in the fluid can cause a system malfunction. Use only DOT 3 or 4 fluid from an unopened container. Use of old, polluted or non-approved fluid can seriously impair the function of the system.

The fluid level must be kept between the MAX and MIN lines at all times. Do not overfill beyond the MAX line; fluid spillage may result.
