Add Brake fluid ti 2008 650i

I'm having a terrible time getting the cover off the brake fluid reservoir on my 2008 BMW 650i.

I've especially found trouble in the back clip, which I can't get fastened as it was.

I'm thinking that I'm going to be forced to go to a mechanic for what otherwise would be a simple job.

Brake fluid is one of the services that I donít mind taking to a BMW Indy. My shop charges $90 for the whole bleed and refill. Same as AC work. I just donít touch it. I would let the shop do it.

Thanks. The computer indicates I need only add fluid, nothing more; by 8/24.

Might be time for a fluid change. Itís recommended for every two years.

Find a reputable indie shop that specializes in bimmers at www.bimrs.org. Also, check the website of the local chapter of the BMW Car Club of America for recommendations.
