Brake Fluid Level
Swallowing Brake Fluid
Brake fluid is hazardous to your health, and may be fatal if swallowed.
Brake fluid attacks paintwork and other surfaces.
Checking the brake fluid level
The reservoir for the hydraulic braking and clutch systems is located in the luggage compartment.
A slight decrease in the fluid level due to wear and automatic readjustment of the disc brakes is normal.
If, however, the fluid level falls markedly or below the minimum mark, the braking system may have developed a leak.
Changing the brake fluid
Brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air over time. This accumulation of water lowers the boiling point and, under certain operating conditions, can affect the braking performance.
Therefore have the brake fluid changed in accordance with the change intervals stated in the brochure "Maintenance".
