If it's where I think it is, use a mirror to check the level, and you can buy a hose/pump to fill if needed. The hose kit fits a gallon can (!), which is what I have (I work in a shop). I suppose if you were adventurous you could have an assistant hold a pint bottle in the air, and siphon brake fluid into the reservoir if needed. The voice of experience says brake fluid doesn't taste very good...

Two wrongs don't make a right, but three rights make a left.

The auto stores sell a cheap pump for use with gear oil, but it will work for a time with brake fluid. Eventually the brake fluid will cause the pump to quit, but they aren't very expensive.

Hello i am here discussing the topic of Air Cleaning....Here i am discussing about Hepa filters remove at least 99.97% of 0.3-micrometer particles, and are usually more effective for particles which are larger or slightly smaller. They are effective down to 0.01 micrometers in many cases, but become ineffective for particles smaller than 0.01 micrometer...
