      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. C-Max brake fluid top-up

    Thanks for your input ToolBox, I used a 99p for 3 Tesco kitchen funnel and a £1.85 metre of B&Q 8mm plastic pipe. The solution was easy in the end, I was just confused as to why the brake fluid reservoir is recessed especially since the owners manual shows it in plain view next to the washer and coolant reservoirs. I do about 30k per annum and it was last serviced in November so it'll be due shortly, I'll keep an eye on it and if it gets low again I'll get it in early. Cheers, Aub
  2. C-Max brake fluid top-up

    I have a C-Max Ghia 2.0 Duratorq TDCi and have a very intermittent low brake fluid light so I want to do a top-up. However, the brake fluid reservoir seems to be unreachable. According to page 192 of the owners guide it sits next to screenwash and coolant top-up points but on mine it's recessed about 20cm further back under the windscreen. Short of creating a kitchen funnel and aquarium pipe type rig to reach it how is it meant to be done? Cheers, Aub
