Is normal because the brake pads/liners wear off ! As long you do not have a wet area by any wheel or at the master cylinder.

There is nothing special to adding brake fluid. With the hood open on the drivers side on the firewall you should see the master cylinder. The cover is either a small round cap that will just spin off or a rectangular one that will pull off. Use DOT 3 fluid and fill. Make sure no dirt falls in.

that is your brake fluid reservior. if you have fluid and no brake noise you may have a faulty mastercylinder. the first thing i would check is to make sure the vaccum hose to the brake booster is connected to the brakebooster and to the rear of the engine (since you did not know where your brake fluid reservior was the master cylinder is the meatal part that holds the reservior and the brake booster is the big round bubble that the master cylinder is bolted to) hope this helps you out.

It will be under the hood, on the driver's side, mounted on the brake booster, mounted on firewall. The master cylinder is usually silver with a plastic reservoir on top with a black plasic cap, there should be 4 steel lines coming out of it. Remove the cap and fill up to the "FULL" level on the reservoir.

This is for a 328, but should be the same for a 325.
Location 1 is where you add the clutch fluid. The brake fluid reservoir for both the brake master cylinder and clutch master cylinder. There is a line from the brake reservoir to the clutch master cylinder.
Also, read you owners manual. It should show the same ocation pictorially.
