Break fluid is added to the master cyl reservoir, it is on the fire wall drivers side see pic for a view of a master cyl.

THE BRAKE FLUID MASTER CYLINDER IS RECESSED AND ORIENTED IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT SO THAT THE BRAKE FLUID WARNING STATEMENT EMBOSSED ON BOTH THE TOP OF THE FILLER CAP AND THE SIDE OF THE RESERVOIR BODY ARE NOT ENTIRELY VISIBLE BY DIRECT VIEW

This is well detailed and illustrated in the Owners Manual - See "Related Questions" below for more == Answer == The reservoir is located on the drivers side of the engine back underneath the windshield. It is a black reservoir with a 2 inch cap. Tilting the brake fluid bottle sideways then punching 2 small holes in the foil (one on either side of the bottle opening) is the best way to get the fluid in the reservoir. == Answer == Resevoir (master cylinder) on the firewall driver's side Inside the engine compartment, above the steering column is the white brake fluid reservoir.
