Rear brake reservoir

Leaving early in the morn and need to add some fluid. What needs to be removed to get to the reservoir? Thanks for the help.

Re: Rear brake reservoir

I'm not sure if the 2002 and 2000 are the same but I can access mine by removing the passenger seat.

Re: Rear brake reservoir

That looked right but I didn't want to get into it tonight if I had to take off the R side tupperware.

Re: Rear brake reservoir

Rear seat off was all it needed. Needle nose pliers to unscrew the cap and a straw to fill with. Thanks for the help. Probably a 10 min. job at most.

Re: Rear brake reservoir

Remember there are two reservoirs in the rear assembly? Not that I've ever added fluid, only to have to go through the whole process again.
