FLUID RECOMMENDATION AND LEVEL CHECK



See Figure 1

The 260 series vehicles, as well as 1980 and later models with a V6 engine and manual transmission, are equipped with a hydraulic clutch release system rather than the cable clutch release used on other Volvos. You can check the fluid level without removing the master cylinder cap by looking through the translucent sides of the reservoir. If fluid is not even with the MAX line, add DOT 4 brake fluid through the capped opening.


WARNING
Do not allow brake fluid to come in contact with any painted surfaces of the car. If this occurs, immediately rinse the area with clear water.
