Checking the fluid level

WARNING

● Never let brake fluid contact your eyes because brake fluid can be harmful to your eyes. If brake fluid gets in your eyes, immediately flush them thoroughly with clean water. For safety, when performing this work, wearing eye protection is advisable.

● Brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air. Any absorbed moisture can cause a dangerous loss of braking performance.

● If the vehicle requires frequent refilling, there may be a leak. If you suspect a problem, have the vehicle checked at your SUBARU dealer.

CAUTION

● When adding brake fluid, be careful not to allow any dirt into the reservoir.

● Never splash the brake fluid over painted surfaces or rubber parts. Alcohol contained in the brake fluid may damage them.

● Be careful not to spill brake fluid when adding it. If brake fluid touches the exhaust pipe, it may cause a bad smell, smoke, and/or a fire. If brake fluid gets on the exhaust pipe, be sure to wipe it off.

Check the fluid level monthly.
