Leaking brake fluid in Clio

Asked by Glen Gibson

In April my Renault Clio was towed away because the brake fluid was so low that a brake system fault appeared on my display — the second time this fault has appeared. The fix was to use the same master cylinder cap, tighten it to a certain tension and then respray the engine bay where the brake fluid had taken the paint off. After 16 days I picked the car up, lifted the bonnet, and it was still leaking. In May a new reservoir from France was fitted and it's still leaking.
