Brake Fluid - Top Up
« on: December 15, 2016, 08:44:18 AM »

Can someone advise what is the easiest/best way to top up brake fluid on my 2004 Ford Galaxy?

It looks a bit of a struggle but if any of you know of a easy way then please do let me know.

Bulkhead extension panel off then use a length of hose with a funnel on it

There was some discussion about brake fluid bleeding etc here. The upshot is though that the fluid reservoir is in a very inaccessible place on the Galaxy, the best access to it (in my opinion) is gained by removing the engine top cover (if fitted- not the rocker cover!) and the airbox, this will open up enough space to remove the reservoir cap and using a small measuring cylinder, cap or syringe etc you can top up the fluid without it spilling everywhere!
