COMPROBACIÓN DEL NIVEL DEL LÍQUIDO DE FRENOS/EMBRAGUE

WARNING

Seek qualified assistance immediately if brake pedal travel is unusually long or if there is any significant loss of brake fluid. Driving under such conditions could result in extended stopping distances or complete brake failure.

WARNING

Brake fluid is highly toxic - keep containers sealed and out of the reach of children. If accidental consumption of fluid is suspected, seek medical attention immediately.

WARNING

If the fluid comes into contact with the skin or eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water.

WARNING

Brake fluid is highly inflammable. Do not allow brake fluid to come into contact with naked flames or other sources of ignition (e.g., a hot engine).

WARNING

Do not drive the vehicle with the fluid level below the MIN mark.

If the quantity of fluid in the brake reservoir drops below the recommended level, a red warning lamp in the Instrument panel will illuminate. See FRENO (ROJO).

NOTES

If the warning lamp illuminates while the vehicle is being driven, stop the vehicle as soon as safety permits, by gently applying the brakes. Check and top up the fluid level, if necessary.

With the vehicle on level ground, check the fluid level at least every week (more frequently in high mileage or arduous operating conditions).

  1. Remove the driver's side, under bonnet cover. See PUNTOS DE LLENADO DE LÍQUIDO and DESINSTALACIÓN DE LAS TAPAS DEL VANO MOTOR.

  2. Check the brake fluid reservoir level. The level should be between the MIN and the MAX marks.

    NOTES

    The fluid level may drop slightly during normal use as a result of brake pad wear, but should not be allowed to drop below the MIN mark.
