Toyota RAV4>> Maintenance>> Check of levels of operational liquids>> Brake fluid
The compensation tank for brake fluid is located in a motor compartment. The stopper of a tank is equipped with an air vent which should not be corked.
The tank has the transparent case and therefore the level of brake fluid can be controlled outside.
Level of brake fluid has to be always closer to a tag the MOVE.
If the level of brake fluid too low, before removal of a stopper from a compensation tank wipe with pure rags a stopper and the place about a stopper from pollution to avoid their hit in a hydraulic contour of brakes and coupling.
Add brake fluid of the recommended brand in a tank. Mixing of various types of brake fluid can damage hydraulic system.
Fill a tank with brake fluid only to a dotted tag. It will provide normal level at installation on a stopper tank with a float for control of level.

       PREVENTION
The brake fluid used in hydraulic system of brakes is poisonous therefore at its hit on skin it is necessary to wash away immediately its large number waters.
If liquid on imprudence got into eyes or in an organism, immediately see a doctor.
Brake fluid dissolves paint and plastic therefore at hit of liquid on a paint and varnish covering of the car wash out its large number waters.
Brake fluid is hygroscopic, that is absorbs moisture from air therefore it is not recommended to use the liquid stored a long time in open ware.
Brake fluid should not contact with mineral oils. Even a small amount of mineral oil worsens properties of brake fluid and can put the brake system out of action.

At uncovered examine internal surfaces of a compensation tank. If on walls of a tank there are deposits or there are water droplets, replace brake fluid.
After filling of a tank check that the cover is reliably fixed on a tank.
Level of brake fluid can slightly decrease at operation of the car owing to wear of brake slips and automatic control of brake shoes. This quite normal phenomenon.
If the level of brake fluid considerably decreased for short term or became below MIN tag, most likely, tightness of the brake system is broken. About too low level of brake fluid in a tank the control lamp signals.
