BRAKE FLUID ON-VEHICLE INSPECTION


  1. CHECK FLUID LEVEL IN RESERVOIR

    Note

    If using a dropper to adjust the fluid amount, make sure that the dropper has not been used with mineral oils, water or deteriorated brake fluid. Sealed areas may deteriorate and lead to fluid leaks, or the fluid may deteriorate and lead to decreased efficiency.
