Default Stupid Question -- '99 XLE V6

How do I remove the lid on the Master Cylinder reservoir?

I'd sooner ask this stupid question than break the thing off.

Thanks!!!

If like my other Yotas its a plack rubber cap that you just pry up and
remove. Its snaps back down to replace.

Thanks! I didn't want to try to hard.

Did your other 'Yotas' have a small rubber protusion in the center of
the cap?

=======
That is a vent for the reservoir to avoid creating a vacuum as the pads
wear and the brake fluid level drops.
I suppose it has the overlapping design versus just a hole in the cover
to minimize entry of dirt and dust.
