Hi, everyone. Sue here from 1A Auto and today we have a 2015 F35 with the 6.2 gas engine in the shop, and I just want to show you where the brake fluid master cylinder is. It's under the engine compartment, of course, and it's right in front of the driver's seat when you open the hood. It's right here attached to that evacing booster, and you'll see a max line and a minimal line. Always take a rag if you can, clear off any loose dirt, you don't want that going into the cylinder. And then read your cap. See what kind of brake fluid it takes--DOT 3.

Want to take that cap open and make sure there's no damage to the seal. Looks good. And I can see I need to add a little bit, so I'm just going to take my DOT 3 brake fluid and I'm going to top it off. You can watch it actually go up. You never want to overfill brake fluid because it actually is a fluid that expands when it gets warm. Make sure that's down and locked tight.

Thanks for watching. Visit 1AAuto.com, your place for DIY auto repairs, for great parts, great service and more content.
