locating the rear brake fluid reservoir

My service manual is very vague (to me anyway) as to where I would top off the brake fluid. Can some one send a picture or a good description of how to locate this?

Re: locating the rear brake fluid reservoir

If you were going to top off to eliminate a flashing brake light - that won't help as the 2000 does not monitor the fluid level in any of the reservoirs.
