To top up, remove the cap A-fig. 12 and lift the telescopic filler B, until it clicks.
Pour a mixture of water and TUTELA PROFESSIONAL SC 35, in the following concentrations:
30% of TUTELA PROFESSIONAL SC 35 and 70% of water in summer;
50% of TUTELA PROFESSIONAL SC 35 and 50 of water in winter. If the temperature falls below –20°C, use TUTELA PROFESSIONAL SC 35 undiluted.
Do not travel with the windscreen washer reservoir empty. The windscreen washer is fundamental for improving visibility.
POWER STEERING FLUID fig. 13
The oil level with the vehicle on level ground and engine cold should be included between the references MIN and MAX on the reservoir.
When the oil is hot, the level can exceed the reference line MAX.
When topping up (where necessary) make sure that the oil has the same specifications as the oil in the system.
Do not let the power steering fluid come into contact with hot engine parts. It catches fire very easily.
Oil consumption is extremely low. If the oil level needs topping up again a s short period of time, have the system checked for leakage at a Fiat Dealership.
BRAKE/HYDRAULIC CLUTCH FLUID fig. 14-15
Check that the level of the fluid in the reservoir is at the maximum.
Use DOT 4 fluid only for topping up.
We recommend TUTELA TOP 4 that the braking system was originally filled with.
Check that fluid contained in tank is at maximum level. If fluid has to be added, it is suggested to use the brake fluid in table "Fluids and lubricants"
(see chapter "Technical characteristics").
At plug opening, pay maximum attention in order to prevent any impurities from entering the tank.
For topping up, always use a funnel with integrated filter with mesh equal to or lower than 0.12 mm.
Prevent brake fluid, which is highly corrosive, from coming into contact with painted parts. Should it happen, immediately wash with water.
Brake fluid is poisonous and very corrosive. In the event of accidental contact, wash the effected part with water and mild soap and rinse. If the fluid is swallowed, call a doctor immediately.
The symbol on the container indicates synthetic brake fluid distinguishing it from mineral fluid. Using mineral type fluid would damage the special rubber braking system gaskets beyond repair.
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (meaning it absorbs humidity).
This is why the fluid should be changed more frequently than shown in the service schedule if the vehicle is mainly driven in areas with a high percentage of humidity in the air.
