Level of brake fluid

GENERAL INFORMATION

Prevention

The brake fluid used in hydraulic system of coupling is poisonous therefore at its hit on skin it is necessary to wash out immediately this place a plentiful amount of water. If liquid got into eyes or in an organism, it is necessary to see a doctor immediately. Some liquids have property to ignite easily and can light up even from contact with hot knots of the car. Besides, the liquid used in hydraulic system of coupling dissolves paint and plastic therefore at hit of liquid on a paint and varnish covering of the car wash out it a plentiful amount of water. Also this liquid is hygroscopic, i.e. absorbs moisture from air and therefore the liquid which is stored a long time in open ware is not recommended to be used.


Check that the level of brake fluid is in a transparent tank between tags of MIN and MAX.

If the dolivka of brake fluid is necessary, at first wipe area around a cover of a jellied mouth and unscrew a cover from a tank with brake fluid.

Check purity of a tank, and if necessary, merge brake fluid and clear a tank.

Add brake fluid to MAX tag on a tank. Use only the ordered brake fluid as mixing of brake fluids is not allowed.
