    Brake fluid reservoir access

    Currently working on making the brake fluid reservoir access cover. The cover will be stabilized using small automobile plastic fasteners. What do you think?

    Good idea and needed, but I'm sure we all think the factory should have done this.

    Being that I had a hole cut in my Frunk to access the cover, I like your look better.

    great! Is on my "to do" list too.

    Re: Brake fluid reservoir access

    I used an ABS sheet I got from Amazon:

    That said, I simply cannot remove the driver's side wiper arm (left side) doesn't matter what I do.

    I have used one of the tools to remove the other side and that side popped out without problems. The tools I have simply will not loosen up the driver's side arm. Anyone else got tips?

    Just changed batteries and used the tool you show on the right for my wipers. On both sides it was very tight and made a very loud pop when it finally released. Thought I'd cracked the windshield. Have you tried spraying with penetrating oil and letting set for a bit? Coated mine with a little lube when I put them back on.
