Fiat Uno 45 brake reservoir cap

Hey dudes, just bought myself an '89 fiat Uno 45 999cc fire and I love it! Can't believe how clean it is not a spec of rust.
Couple bits need doing, one of which is the bloke I got it off for some reason fitted a different brake master cylinder reservoir cap which isn't from this car and doesn't fit. These ones have a sensor on them which means there's a light on the dash. I thought this would be a simple fix but can I find one???!!! (Probably why he fitted a different one). Parts supply for the car is good but as this is not a common part that needs replacing noone stocks it, even new master cylinders which are easy to find come without the reservoir. Iv tried breakers but this is quite a rare car now (when did you last see one on the road?) Any ideas where I could find one?
Id be very grateful for any help as I love the car and want it to be right.
Thanks guys

Re: Fiat Uno 45 brake reservoir cap

My Uno mk2 looks like this, not sure if the mk1 is the same?

If that is the case then something like this should help you out:

Is this what you were looking for? or does the mk1 have a different cap?

Re: Fiat Uno 45 brake reservoir cap

Just out of curiosity, did you come right with the brake reservoir cap?
