Locate the brake fluid reservoir – it is under this cover
Look for the MAX-MIN positions on the side of the translucent body (this model has an electronic level built into the cap)
If the level needs topping up - WEARING GLOVES - carefully open the cap, have a paper towel ready to catch any drips as brake fluid is corrosive
Now securely replace and tighten cap
Remove the cover, place safely out of the way
