Fig. Fig. 2 Top off the brake master cylinder reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid to the MAX mark

The brake and clutch (manual transmission) master cylinder reservoirs are made of a translucent plastic so that the fluid level can be checked without removing the cap. Check the fluid level frequently.

If the fluid is low, fill the reservoir with DOT 3 fluid, pouring so bubbles do not form in the reservoir. Use care not to spill any fluid on the car's paint, damage may result.


WARNING
Do not use a lower grade of brake fluid and never mix different types. Either could result in a brake system failure.
