Locate the brake fluid reservoir
Look for the MAX-MIN positions on the side of the translucent body
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 - replace the air intake hose
It is easier if you remove the air intake hose - use a screwdriver to do this
