Try lifting up the instrument cluster cover from the back, believe it or not the brake fluid is behind the speedo.Had the same problem at a garage many years ago.

RE: caravelle 2.6i brakes
My Dad nearly killed a mackie back in early 1980 when we just got our new 2L aircooled bus and he could not find where to check the Brake fluid
so off we go and stopped past the first VW Agents he saw
Ask them to pls show him where to check Brake fluid

Mackie go to the Bus and start pulling on the Back of the Cluster pannel and when new the clips are tight and a sound of something breaking came from the bus and that whas then when a Mackie nearly got a hiding for breaking the oldmans bus Big GrinBig GrinBig Grin

Nah, you just kind of rip it off, and as Bugger says it sounds like it is breaking and kind of feels like it too.
