brake resevoir seal

Post by hap2 » Tue Jul 10, 2018 7:16 pm



What is the rubber seal underneath the front brake reservoir cap called? Where can I get one without getting hosed? Also, where can I get simple step by step instructions on how to bleed both the front & rear brakes on a 1500? One mechanic said it’d take just under an hour to do. Is that about right or what?

Seems unusual, but I sure can't find anything about changing brake fluid in the how to under 1500
