    I am trying to get one cap from the brake fluid reservoir for my 1980 400i Ferrari. I am also happy to buy the entire secondhand [used] reservoir if necessary.
    Also do you know what the item [A*] shown below, inside the glove compartment does?
    There is also a toggle switch which appears to have OEM wiring attached to it!
    Any clues???

    Unit in glove compartment has A8 on it also antibrina valves and avian valves

    David, I believe I have the cap/reservoir you need if it has a black electrical (dual bullet) connector under the cap. I will check it and send you a mail but I am pretty sure that you can find the same cap from an ATE reservoir from another European car.

    My '84 400i has a toggle switch in glove box which turns on the hand held courtesy light which has a coil-type retractable wire. The light was clipped in for storage just to left of glove box (LHD). Sounds like yours was removed but I do not have the controls you show in photo.

    My 1983 with dual a/c was the same as Ken's except I did have the courtesy light. No controls or switches labeled AB or like shown.
