Re: Damn hydraulic fluid reservoir!

<< Why does Audi use a non-transparent container to contain the hydraulic 
fluid??????  I'm trying to make sense of this.  It is damn impossible to see 
what the fluid level is during the day and at night, can be somewhat possible 
if you hold a *very* bright flashlight directly behind it, but who can get 
one back there. >>

Mine got alot easier to see fluid level in after removing the reservoir and 
cleaning all the crud out when I changed some of the hydraulic hoses 
recently. It took some doing too...(and this only ~30k miles after a so 
called repair shop replaced all the major hydraulic components to the tune of 
~$3000 to the PO of the car...).
