INSTALLATION
NOTICE
Do not allow dirt or debris to enter the master cylinder reservoir. Dirt or debris in the reservoir can cause improper operation and equipment damage. (00205c)
NOTICE
DOT 4 brake fluid will damage painted and body panel surfaces it comes in contact with. Always use caution and protect surfaces from spills whenever brake work is performed. Failure to comply can result in cosmetic damage. (00239c)
1. Clean rear master cylinder cover, then loosen the two screws that hold cover in place.
2. Remove original cover and gasket.
3. Put new cover and gasket in position.
NOTE
The cover is labeled for DOT 4 BRAKE FLUID. Install this cover on reservoirs filled only with DOT 4 BRAKE FLUID. Do not mix grades of brake fluid. as they are not compatible and could cause equipment damage.

  • If on skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Rinse skin immediately with plenty of water for 15-20 minutes. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.

4. If necessary, add DOT 4 HYDRAULIC BRAKE FLUID to the master cylinder reservoir until the fluid level reaches the MAX marking (a ridge in the casting) inside the reservoir (A). Do not reuse old brake fluid. Use only DOT 4 fluid from a sealed container.
WARNING
Be sure the master cylinder relief port is not plugged. A plugged relief port can cause brake drag or lockup and loss of vehicle control, which could result in death or serious injury. (00317a)
5. Verify proper operation of the master cylinder relief port. Actuate the brake pedal. A slight spurt of fluid will break the fluid surface in the reservoir compartment if all internal components are working properly.
NOTE
Before installing the master cylinder cover, verify that the cover gasket bellows is not expanded. If the bellows is expanded, brake fluid will be ejected from the reservoir during cover installation, which could damage the vehicle finish.
6. Install cover screws and tighten screws (1) to 1.3–1.7 N·m (12–15 in-lbs).
