Good day all,
so as you see in the picture i have attached, my reservoir kinda spills out coolant. Keep in mind, my R3 was purchased new. I am thinking (and hoping) maybe they just overfilled the radiator when they topped off the fluids at the time of purchase. All input is welcomed. Thanks

For mine, the top of the reservoir was uneven. I took it out, saved the coolant, very lightly sanded the top flat, rinsed everything out very well, and reassembled.

Also, make sure the cap is actually seated down properly.

I will definitely check this out. I got it new, so there shouldn't be anything wrong with it? Then again, there are recalls, so...:crying:
