    Having replaced the seals on the top locks of my 1999 129 I would like to check the fluid level and top up if required.
    I cannot find the reservoir for it, was suggested that it was in the boot under the spare wheel but not there.

    Does anyone know. Thanks in advance.

    Found the job fairly straight forward, the only difficult bit was removing and replacing the spring clip that holds the piston in.

    Definitely in the boot under the spare wheel.
    There's a plastic cover on top to protect it.
