open the reservoir if the fluid is dark change it, you can put a hose over the bleeder screw open it and put the end in a recovery vessel then pour new fluid in the reservoir ( don't let it go dry ) until it runs clear out of the hose. sometime it will gravity feed and sometime you have to squeeze the lever to get it going. on mine i sucked the fluid up with a baster so i could clean the reservoir sight glass. the reservoir was really dirty also. don't fill it above the sight glass or you'll have a mess when you install the cover. brake fluid is an oxidizer so wash it off quickly if it gets on anything. brake fluid dissolves in water so have some nearby for a washdown when you finish.
