The reservoir is located on the driver's side rear of the engine compartment below the wiper boat assembly. Be sure to clean the cap before removing it and use the correct type of brake fluid as indicated on the cap. Normally, as the brake linings wear the fluid level in the reservoir drops. The level should not go so low as to affect functioning of the brakes or turn on a warning indicator lamp. When the linings are replaced, unless fluid is removed from the system, the fluid will rise to its previous level. If additional fluid had been added to the reservoir, it may overflow and spill brake fluid out. If not immediately cleaned off, brake fluid can damage paint, metal, plastic, and wiring.

Excessively worn linings or leaking brake fluid can lead to brake failure if not corrected.
