SOURCE: location of rear brake reservoir

The rear brake reservoir should be under the right side cover. It unscrews and you can add fluid.You might have a 8 or 10 mm bolt holding the cover down, but more likely you'll have to just pull it. It has push in studs that go into rubber grommets to hold it in place.

SOURCE: How to remove stuck screws in brake fluid reservoir

This can be tricky. The best solution I have found is to find a small pin punch that will fit into the allen head hole and using a small hammer, give the head of the screw a sharp hit and try it again. This usually works but if not, the ultimate solution is to drill the head of the screw off. Use caution when doing this and make sure you are on center.

To avoid this issue in the future, install stainless screws and only tighten them enough to hold the cover down - they do NOT have to be super tight.

Bike has been sitting up for a year or two. I squeezed the front brake lever, which was really tight. It broke free but now there is no pressure at all. Not sure where to start.


Open your brake reservoir and check fluid level. Add fluid to proper level and slowly squeeze the lever, watching for bubbles or fluid flow in the reservoir. Check the brake calipers to ensure there is not a leak in that area. If no leaks, continue squeezing the brake until it is fully operational. May have to add fluid while doing this. Close reservoir.

Rear brake fails ,when mashed ,there is NO brake...


Find your rear brake master cylinder. The find the metal line that comes out of the rear of the master cylinder. Follow this line all the way back to your rear brake caliper. Look for broken lines or leaks. Check your rear brake master cylinder reservoir to make sure you have brake fluid in it. Fill the reservoir with the recommended type of fluid. The proper type of fluid is printed on the top cover for the reservoir. Never mix the different types of brake fluid, they are not compatible. Once you fill the reservoir, you must bleed the brakes.

To bleed the brakes, you perform the following steps in this exact order. First, slowly depress and release the rear brake pedal a few times. Then, press the rear brake pedal and hold it. Open the bleeder valve on the caliper and allow all air or brake fluid to escape. Close the bleeder valve. Release the brake pedal and again depress and hold it down. Open the bleeder and allow the air and fluid to bleed out. Close the bleeder valves. Release the brake pedal. Check the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir. Do not allow the reservoir to run dry. If you still don't have a good brake pedal, continue to bleed the brakes until you get brake fluid with no air bubbles in it.

If after you have thoroughly bled the brakes you cannot get a pedal, you either have a mechanical problem with the brake pedal or the master cylinder needs rebuilding.

Good Luck

Break light coming on dash. Goes off and on. Is it safe to drive? What do I check for under the hood? and where?


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

We are sorry that you are having issues with your Toyota.

What you are describing, the brake light illuminating on and off may be due to s low brake fluid condition in the brake master cylinder reservoir.

There is a sensor in the master cylinder that monitors the quantity of the brake fluid present. As the brakes wear, the fluid level drops proportionately.

What you can do:
Open the hood, and closely examine the fluid level in the plastic reservoir on the brake master cylinder. It is located at the engine side of the firewall, pretty much in line with your turn signal switch. Look at the side of the cylinder reservoir. There will be a "MAX" line, and a "MIN" line.
The Max is the proper fill level.

If the fluid level is close to the Min line, you probably need some front brake pads replaced.
This indicates a low fluid condition in the reservoir.

We would not suggest 'topping off' the fluid, just to extinguish the light. When you do get your brake pads replaced, the extra fluid will be forced out of the top of the reservoir, and the brake fluid will get on the paint under your hood. Brake fluid will damage your paint.

Suggestion: Get the front brake pads checked, replace them if they are worn.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to get back to me.

Brake warning light is on while driving


Check the fluid level in your brake fluid reservoir. A sensor in the reservoir indicates when the fluid level is low. The reservoir on most cars is just in front of the driver on the back wall (firewall) of the engine compartment. Look in your owners manual for more information. Another possibility is that your parking brake is not fully disengaged or the switch that indicates that it is disengaged is not operating properly.

Reset low brake fluid light after bleeding brakes it was off before I bled them


Check your brake fluid level, the low brake light reset it self when the fluid is at the right level.
If that did not help, inspect the wire leads to the sensor on the brake reservoir or replace the sensor if level is proper.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

Red brake light flashing periodically - ??


Often this is because the brake fluid level is low. There is a sensor in the brake fluid reservoir that turns on the dash warning light when it does not sense enough fluid. You can visually check the brake fluid reservoir by looking at the reservoir under the hood. There are marks on the reservoir to show the correct level. If the fluid is low, this means that one of your brake system components is leaking fluid and needs to be replaced or repaired. If the fluid level is ok, possibly there could be air bubbles in the system, and it needs to be bled. If bleeding does not solve the problem, it could mean that the master cylinder is not holding pressure. If the brake pedal is spongy but it becomes firm after a few pumps, usually this means air in the system. If it stays spongy after pumping, and sinks continually when you press it, probably the master cylinder needs to be checked.

Is there a special way to bleed the brake system on a 2001 catera


  1. Place a clean shop cloth beneath the brake master cylinder to prevent brake fluid spills.
  2. With the ignition OFF and the brakes cool, apply the brakes 3-5 times, or until the brake pedal effort increases significantly, in order to deplete the brake booster power reserve.

Fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container. Ensure that the brake master cylinder reservoir remains at least half-full during this bleeding procedure. Add fluid as needed to maintain the proper level. Clean the outside of the reservoir on and around the reservoir cap prior to removing the cap and diaphragm.
  1. Install a proper box-end wrench onto the RIGHT REAR wheel hydraulic circuit bleeder valve.
  2. Install a transparent hose over the end of the bleeder valve.
  3. Submerge the open end of the transparent hose into a transparent container partially filled DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container.
  4. Have an assistant slowly depress the brake pedal fully and maintain steady pressure on the pedal.
  5. Loosen the bleeder valve to purge air from the wheel hydraulic circuit.
  6. Tighten the bleeder valve, then have the assistant slowly release the brake pedal.
  7. Wait 15 seconds, then repeat these steps until all air is purged from the same wheel hydraulic circuit.
  8. Repeat this procedure with the LEFT FRONT, then LEFT REAR and finally the RIGHT FRONT.
  9. Fill the brake master cylinder reservoir to the maximum-fill level with DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container.
  10. Slowly depress and release the brake pedal. Observe the feel of the brake pedal.

Brake light on dash is on. What does it mean?


This Light Indicates 1 of 2 things, 1. Is the BRAKE FLUID Level is LOW, Or 2. That the Parking BRAKE is Applied. Check Fluid and Top Off If Needed, There is A LINE that Shows The PROPER Level.
