|06 1.8 Brake Fluid Level - redviper|
Had the bonnet up yesterday to check oil level etc, and i noticed that the Brake fluid bottle was clear, IE, i could not see any fluid at the Min/MAX levels.
I tried to tap the reservoir to see if i could make the top level of the fluid shake but i got nothing, although the reservoir didn?t move its held in very securely.
I didn?t want to unscrew the cap, as I didn?t really know what I was doing, and it started to rain so didn?t want any water under there.
The low fluid level/handbrake light goes out when the handbrake is released and doesn?t come on when driving and the brakes operate and function fine.
Im going to Bath/Bristol next week and the garage that I bought it from said they would take a look as I don?t want to take any chances.
Im just a little concerned, is it hard to check the levels, and is it normal to go down so much, the car has been serviced but I don?t know if that included brake and disc replacement
The car has all round discs.
Thanks in Adavance
