Fig. 130 Engine compartment: Brake fluid reservoir

The brake fluid reservoir is located in the engine compartment » Fig. 130.

  • Switch off the engine.
  • Open the bonnet.
  • Check the level of brake fluid in the reservoir » Fig. 130.

The level must be between the “MIN” and “MAX” markings.

A slight drop in the fluid level results in operation due to normal wear and tear and the automatic adjustment of the brake pads.

There may be an indication of a leak in the brake system, however, if the fluid level drops significantly within a short time or if it drops below the “MIN” marking.

If the brake fluid level is too low, this is indicated by the indicator light » page 36,
Brake system lighting up in the
instrument cluster.

Changing

Brake fluid absorbs moisture. Over time it therefore absorbs moisture from the environment.

Excessive water in the brake fluid may be the cause of corrosion in the brake system.

The water content lowers the boiling point of the brake fluid.

The brake fluid must comply with the following standards or specifications:

  • VW 50114;
  • FMVSS 116 DOT4.
