I lost my brake reservoir cap!!!

While changing brake pads, I had the cap loose and tilted so I could push the pistons back in place and while doing some other things under the hood, I bumped the cap which fell.

Who the H3LL would design a large hole directly under the reservoir in the fender well???!!! At least that's where I THINK the cap fell.

Anyone have any idea how to access that area? Take off the inner fender liner I guess.....D@MN!

Remove the two lower push-pin fasteners on the lowest part of your inner wheel well liner and pull out on it and the cap will fall right out.

Same thing happened to a buddy of mine last summer, only thing is we couldn't find it. That's is until I dropped a socket while installing my lowering springs last week down the same hole so, while searching for it I removed the pins and it fell out.

Been there done that. I just ordered another one. I spent an hour looking for it and gave up.

LOL- I discovered that hole (WTH- I never noticed that before!) when I dropped a 13mm socket in it taking the exhaust midpipe off.

Had an extra socket, so when an initial search failed I just let it go and finished the job.

2 weeks later I heard a clunk when making the last right turn into work and finally figured out where to look!

I lost my brake reservoir cap!!!

I did that ... if you take out the wheel liner it'll fall out :-)

However ... I have still to find my 4" adjustable spanner that I fear may be down the side of the manifold shielding??

P.S. STL2010SS got there first :-)
