I removed the seat and the RH side panel. The RH panel has four of those stupid push pin connectors that disappear when you release them. The master cylinder is still half covered by a chassis member and the top was difficult to unscrew. Once the top is off you still have to pull on the mounting to get clearance to top it up. It could have easily been located under the seat with a slight longer hose.I've seen photos where it was done - but only on Gen I FJRs where you didn't need to move the ECU location. Also perhaps non-abs Gen I as that plumbing could get in the way. I *think* some police FJRs had dual battery systems with one under the seat. To change location would be a major ass-pain and not worth the effort IMHO. As for bleeding the rear brake, easy-peasy. What the heck were you removing to do it?
