Re: Weep at the reservoir after flushing the brakes
There is a rubber diaphragm that seals the reservoir. It often has moisture on the outside and , of course, brake fluid on the inside. I always remove it from the lid and wipe it fully dry before I re-install. If you did not loosen and level the reservoir prior to setting the fill level you will get a small amount of push out when you re-install the lid/diaphragm combo. Just wipe it down and it should not reoccur. The diaphragm seals the unit but allows for fluid movement. The level should never change unless there is a problem since it only goes to the ABS unit and no further (unless you have a 99-2001 with ABS II)
