Checking LHM

Post by BXcitro »

Just a quickie, when checking the LHM fluid with car raised is it the yellow or orange disc that have to be within the red lines?

Thanks

I can never remember. I seem to recall misinformation in some handbooks too - some copies I've had said the upper disc; others the lower.

If you can't decide which one to choose, then as long as it's full but not overflowing when the car is in low(with most of the fluid is back in the tank), then you're fine!

When in high it would be the top disc that indicates correct level which should correspond with the lower disc when in low?

Thank you, I did think it was the orange disc but just wanted to make sure!
