Add brake fluid

When the hood is up and you are looking at the engine it is always in my experience on the firewall (under the windshield) towards the right side. The cap will say something like dot 3 or dot 4 brake fluid on it and the brake fluid reservoir will be translucent so you can see the fluid level through it.

Remove cover from brake fluid reservoir, and add enough brake fluid to fill to 1/8 inch from top, make sure rubber is seated in the cap and is flat looking, replace the cap/cover.

How to bleed clutch 2007 compass


1. Verify fluid level in brake master cylinder. Top off with DOT 3 brake fluid as necessary. Leave cap off.

2. Raise vehicle on hoist.

3. Remove bleed port protective cap and install suitable size and length of clear hose (4) to monitor and divert fluid into suitable container.

4. Open up the bleed circuit by turning the thumb screw (3) counter clockwise this will start the air purge and fluid fill process.

5. Lower vehicle, but only enough to gain access to and fill the brake master cylinder. NOTE: Do not allow clutch master cylinder to run dry while fluid exits bleed port.

6. Top off brake master cylinder fluid level while air is purged and fluid drains from bleed port. Continue this until no air bubbles are seen and a solid column of fluid exists.

7. Close hydraulic bleed circuit, remove drain hose and replace dust cap on bleed port.

8. From driver's seat, actuate clutch pedal 60-100 times.

9. Apply parking brake. Start engine and verify clutch operation and pedal feel. If pedal feels fine and clutch operates as designed, stop here. If pedal still feels spongy or clutch does not fully disengage, excessive air is still trapped within the system, most likely at the master cylinder.

10. Top off brake master cylinder fluid level with DOT 3 brake fluid as necessary.


1. Remove reservoir cap and connect bleeder cap to reservoir. NOTE: Use Bleeder Cap/Modified reservoir cap adapter Snap-on #901-059 or equivalent.

2. Connect service filling machine to bleeder cap. NOTE: Use Service Filling Machine/Brake power bleeder Brake power bleeder or equivalent.

3. Service filling machine should be pressurized to at least 2.5 bar (36 PSI).

4. Remove dust cap from bleeder valve and connect the transparent bleeder hose to bleeder valve.

5. Place the other end of hose in the bleeder container to capture the used fluid. The end of the hose MUST be submerged in the DOT 3 brake fluid.

NOTE: Use Bleeder Container To capture hydraulic fluid and Transparent Bleeder Hose To route fluid to container.

6. Turn on the service filling machine.

7. Crack open the bleeder valve (3).

8. Allow fluid to flow out of bleed port until no more air bubbles can be seen in the transparent bleeder hose.

9. Once fluid is free of air bubbles; make 15 quick actuations between clutch pedal stop positions.

10. Close the bleeder valve and disconnect the service filling machine.

11. To remove remaining air, actuate pedal 10 times slowly between pedal stop positions.

12. Check clutch pedal to see if vehicle is properly bled.

13. If vehicle is not properly bled, repeat procedure.

14. Remove bleeder cap from reservoir and replace reservoir cap.

15. Disconnect transparent bleeder hose from bleeder valve and replace dust cap.

Where do I add the brake fluid

You add Brake Fluid in the master cylinder (see picture) It is on the drivers side against the firewall. Use DOT3 brake fluid only and do not overfill.

Where do i top up the brake fluid in my 11 year ford focus

Check the driver's side under the hood at the firewall area in front of the big round 'booster' which is mounted on the firewall. There should be a plastic (where you can see the brake fluid level) or metal reservoir that is labeled 'DOT 3' fluid on a black cap. Add DOT 3 Brake Fluid in that capped location (after removing the cap).

Good luck on this repair.

The brake indicator light is flickering.

If it's flickering while driving, check to see if your brake fluid level is at max level line.
if not at max, add more fluid.
if at max, check brake reservior cap. there should be a float on a stick located under the cap. There shouldn't be any brake fluid inside the float.
If there's fluid in the float then replace brake resercior cap.
note:The float set the brake indicator light to let you know that brake fluid are low. Brake fluid inside the float cause it to sink making the car think that fluid are low.

I have a new beetle, model 1999. I am looking to refill the brake fluid. Where do I find the reservoir and do I need any special tools? How do I go about doing the work?

Under your hood, should say either DOT3 or DOT4 brake fluid on the cap. It just unscrews, or pulls off. Use the brake fluid it recommends on the cap. There will be a lower and upper limit, so keep the fluid between the lines.
Note, ....if your brake pads are getting low on wear, your brake fluid will also be low, so you might want to get the brakes checked. The fluid level will come back up when all brakes are new, if you have no leaks.

Do I need to remove reservoir cap when changing front brake pad's?

Anytime you do a brake job, remove the cap at the reservoir. When you compress the pistons the brake fluid pushes back through the lines and if the cap is off it will bleed off any extra fluid. If the fluid overfills and has no where to go, this cause a lot of braking issues and can cause the brake and caliper assembly to lock down.
