hmmm it doesn't matter, as DOT4 brake fluid is the most common fluid unlike engine oil.

At least open the cap and see if there is any fluid in it. They should really check that when they changed the pads!

Ah i will do that so. Will i notice any difference for example less pedal travel? Will any brand of dot 4 work even if its halfords and is it ok to mix different brands?

Any DOT 4 will mix fine. You might even stop by the place that you're booked into and they should do it for good customer relations, etc.

From the republic of ireland mate. Just noticed after topping up i now have a leak coming from my rear left must be the brake system as it looks like its dripping from the inside of the tyre and down the rim. Is this a brake leak ?:( Hope its not an expensive fix only just started happening. Oh why me lol
