Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: General notes on brake fluid

  Note
Only use new brake fluid conforming to VW standard (VW 501 14).
Brake fluid is poisonous. Also due to its corrosive effect brake fluid must not come into contact with paintwork.

Rinse off spilled brake fluid using plenty of water.
