CAUTION:

  • All hoses and piping (tubes) must be free from excessive bending, twisting and pulling.
  • Make sure there is no interference with other parts when turning the steering wheel both clockwise and counterclockwise.
  • The brake piping is an important safety part. If a brake fluid leak is detected, always disassemble the parts. Replace applicable part with a new one, if necessary.
  • Be careful not to splash brake fluid on painted areas; it may cause paint damage. If brake fluid is splashed on painted areas, wash it away with water immediately.
  • Do not bend or twist brake hose sharply, or strongly pull it.
  • When removing components, cover connections so that no dirt, dust, or other foreign matter gets in.
  • Refill with new specified brake fluid. Refer to MA-15, "FOR USA AND CANADA : Fluids and Lubricants" (for United States and Canada) or MA-16, "FOR MEXICO : Fluids and Lubricants" (for Mexico).
