Smile LEAKING BRAKE FLUID

Wow, this seems pretty minor compared to some of what I read. Has anyone experienced brake fluid leaking from the reservoir, I presume when braking pushing the fluid forward. My dealer has replaced the cap twice, and now I'll be bringing it in a third time.
I have 7500 miles on my Red 2SS now and no other issues other than a spoiler fastner that broke, and just last weekend, has the chance to run it down the runway of the airfield I work at I got to 134mph with the sheriffs watching. What a ride, smooth, I mean real smooth except for the window whistling at 115+.

Does your invoice from the previous repairs have a part number listed?? If it does is it 20819283? Thats the part number from a PI that has to do with the cap leaking.

I too have the same problem. Others on here have as well. What I was told is that with the clutch and brakes in the same reservoir there is to much pressure and fluid is pushed out the cap. GM has been made aware of this several times as well to no aval. I wish they would just put the clutch in its on resv. and solve the issue.

The reservoir is too full from the factory. Lower the level to around where the seam is, which is between the high and low marks and no more problems.
Check out this thread for info on separating the clutch and brake reservoirs:
