    Default 2020 RTL Removing Brake Fluid Reservoir

    How do you remove the brake fluid reservoir on a 2020 RTL to move it out of the way to do your oil change?

    Regards,

    On mine there is a small tube spacer on the back of the bracket. Pulling that out from the side allowed the brake res to pull free.

    Isn't it weird that in AMERICA our flag and our culture offend so many people......
    but our benefits don't?

    I used a hemostat to grasp the tube end and pull it free. Tried with bent needle nose pliers and it was difficult.

    Just lift up (less than 1/2 inch) and pull out. Disconnect the wires on the sides first. Once you pull it out, you'll see how easy it fits in.

    Mine won't pull out without removing the black locking tube. It's about an inch long by 1/8.

    Remove black tube, lift.
    To get the tube out, small needlenose pliers. Hard to see, easy to drop!

    That's why I used a hemostat. They lock closed on the tube so there is little chance of dropping it behind the panels.
