PEUGEOT 306 BRAKES PROBLEM

1997 Peugeot 306 • 20,000 miles

I've stupidly put oil in the brake fluid reservoir. I have not moved the car or touch the brakes.

Have I distroyed my entire brake system?

S. UCK IT ALL OUT WITH A TURKEY BASTER!

MAYBE ADD SOME MORE BRAKE FLUID.S. UCK IT OUT AGAIN!

REFILL WITH BRAKE JUICE, WHEN YOU GET IT ALL OUT

Thanks!

OK, tried to suck it all out but, the but the reservoir has lots of crevices which my baster can't get into, but I have re topped up with fluid, sucked it out again, then topped up with more fluid.

Am I likely to die a horrible death after my brakes fail or will I be OK?

I LOOKED FOR A PIC OF YOUR MASTER CYLINDER. NO LUCK

DOES IT HAVE A PLASTIC RESERVOIR ATOP A METAL MASTER?

CAN YOU SIMPLY JUST PULL IT UP AND OFF (SNATCH THAT PUPPY OFF!)THEN RINSE IT OUT WITH SPRAY BRAKE CLEANER?

LET IT DRY AND STICK IT BACK ON?

I DID NOT DO ANY GARAGE 'SPERIMENTING TO GET INTO THE "GROOVE" OF YOUR ISSUEDID THE OIL FLOAT, OR SINK TO THE BOTTOM?

It looks like I managed to suck it all out with the turkey baster - I have now driven over 100 miles and have noticed no difference in the brakes so it looks like problem solved.

Thanks, and have a happy new year.
