    Tip 1 year ago on Step 7

    Please remove cap from brake master cylinder - as you compress the pistons back into the housing, this forces brake fluid back up into master cylinder. I have placed a thick cloth under master cylinder to catch any overflow and thus protect paint work and adjacent fittings.
