Default newbie to peugeot

hi , just bought my first peugeot a 1.6 hdi sportium. only had it 5 days (12mths old) and been back to the garage for new front brakes after grinding on my way to manchester. my question is how do i drain some brake fluid out of the reservoir as it is way over the max mark.( already had to clean a lot of fluid off the battery cover. im not happy with the garage as they should not have let a car go out with worn out brakes,windscreen washers not working(fuse). plus when they changed the brakes they forgot to put my locking key for the wheels back and left my drivers mat full of oil which they did clean. cheers laurence

Straw or a turkey baster or even a syringe.

The mesh filter is removable. That dealer should be ashamed of letting a car go out in that state.

The filter is a BRAKE FLUID RESERVOIR FILTER, removable and costs around 1.76 from the dealers.
