I heated up the rear brake hot enough to make it smell burned. I need to change it. Is it as easy as pulling the plug on the bottom, draining it, and fill back up to the plug line? Or is there a resevoir up under the plastic somewhere I am missing? Thanks for the help

plug is under skid plate.take it out and let it drain,take filler cap off 19mm socket, be sure to use tractor hydro/trans oil and not gear oil in the rear diff

Thanks, the guy at the shop said there was a resevoir behind the plastic and I would have to bleed the brake lines. But I couldn't find a resevior, so I thought I would at least double check. What you are saying is what I thought needed to be done as well.

well i dnt know what shop you went to,but that guy doesnt know what hes talking bout!! theres no res. and no bleeding to be done!! the kawies have what they call wet disk breaks on the rear. the brake is inside the diff houseing! thats why they call for hydro oil vs. gear oil!! glad i could help!
