  • Make sure that a brake fluid level in reservoir tank is between MAX and MIN lines as shown.
  • Visually check around reservoir tank for fluid leakage.
  • If the level is excessively low, check brake system for leaks.
  • If brake warning lamp remains illuminated after parking brake pedal is released, check brake system for fluid leaks.

Drain and Refill
