2. Fill:

  • Brake fluid reservoir (with the specified amount of the recommended brake fluid)

WARNING
  • Use only the designated brake fluid. Other brake fluids may cause the rubber seals to deteriorate, causing leakage and poor brake performance.

  • When refilling, be careful that water does not enter the brake fluid reservoir. Water will significantly lower the boiling point of the brake fluid and could cause vapor lock.
