Hi

I noticed today that where you fill up the break fluid seems to be missing a piece. right now it is like a plunger.... a thing that I can push down but when looking at google images there is missing a yellow cap, or thats what it looks like

the breaks work ok so do i even need this missing part and what is it and what is it for?

Thanks

If it is missing the cap, you want to get one on there asap! Brake fluid is 'Hygroscopic' - It absorbs water from the air! If you leave it uncovered, your brakes will get worse and worse very quickly... Brake fluid is good in a braking system, water is not!

If the cap has been missing for a while, it is probably advisable to replace the brake fluid.

Are you sure it is the brake fluid reservoir? Not sure what the "plunger" bit would be. Do you have a pic?

Also, if it is the brake fluid, be very careful of any spilled fluid, as it will ruin paintwork very easily! (Be careful also if you get any on your hands, wash it off thoroughly... and don't touch the paintwork!!)

Is there not a fluid level switch incorporated into the reservoir cap ?

That would explain the plunger bit (I would go out and have a look at mine, but I'm wearing a onesie and the local ladies might lose all control and mob me)
