I had to replace one of the exhaust manifolds and when I was under the hood I broke the sensor off that goes into the master cylinder, some small pieces of the plastic broke off so I cannot tell if it had tabs to clip it in or is it a piece of the master cylinder? did I ruin the master? or is the rest of the clip inside and just needs to be removed and replace the sensor, any info would be appreciated, I'm no mechanic but have to do what I can, thanks

can anyone tell me if that sensor can be replaced or do I have to replace the reservoir?

Best I could look up the other nite, you will have to replace the reservoir (plastic part) Which means you'll end up bleeding brakes also. I think it is only a "low level" light so you should be safe to drive a bit.

So is that what it is? Giving you a "brake" warning light in dash. I think when I looked they were around 30 bucks for the reservoir on rock auto.
