The master cylinder - located in the left rear section of the engine compartment - consists of an aluminum body and a reservoir with minimum fill indicators. The fluid level of the reservoirs should be kept near the top of the observation windows.
Avoid spilling brake fluid on any of the vehicles painted surfaces, wiring cables or electrical connectors. Brake fluid will damage paint and electrical connections. If any fluid is spilled on the vehicle, flush the area with water to lessen the damage.
Any sudden decrease in the fluid level indicates a possible leak in the system and should be checked out immediately.
