2008 Seabreeze Ford F53/ master cylkinder location & brake fluid change

As a 2nd owner, I do not believe the brake fluid has ever been changed. Am taking it to Ford dealer to do the work, but in looking at the location of the master cylinder, I'm wondering how you can get to it to open. It's located so far up and to the right of the front drop panel, you can barely even see the top of the master cylinder. There must be a way to add fluid/flush and gain access to it ,cuz you sure can't do it from the top side. 2 lines come out of the bottom of the cylinder and about 6 inches below the bottom of the cylinder, it looks like there is a fitting in the line. Would this be the access point for adding fluid etc.? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
Viper
