Hello I will help you with your question,


The rack has a pumping action as it is moved back and forth so it is common for the fluid to come out of the reservoir if it is filled too full. All we do is suck a little fluid out of the reservoir, clean up the mess with spray brake cleaner and keep the cap in place when bleeding the system
