The fluid level is monitored by a float. When the fluid level falls below the “MIN” mark, the brake fluid warning lamp lights up.

The fluid level falls slightly with wear of the brake pads, but this does not indicate any abnormality.

The fluid in the master cylinder should be checked when doing other work under the bonnet. The brake system should also be checked for leakage at the same time.

If the fluid level falls markedly in a short length of time, it indicates leaks from the brake system.

If this occurs, we recommend you to have the vehicle checked.

Fluid type

Use brake fluid conforming to DOT3 or DOT4 from a sealed container. The brake fluid is hygroscopic.

Too much moisture in the brake fluid will adversely affect the brake system, reducing the performance.

• Take care in handling brake fluid as it is harmful to the eyes, may irritate your skin and also damage painted surfaces.

• Use only the specified brake fluid.

Do not mix or add different brands of brake fluid to prevent chemical reactions.

Do not let any petroleum-based fluid touch, mix with, or get into the brake fluid.

This will damage the seals.

• Keep the reservoir tank cap closed to prevent the brake fluid from deteriorating except maintenance.

• Clean the filler cap before removing and close the cap securely after maintenance.
