    Default 206Gti Coolant bottle check?

    Have any other 206 owners come up with a quick way of checking the coolant level in the overflow bottle?

    Mine is made of an opaque white plastic and you cannot see in from the lid nor through the sides of the thing.
    How are you expected to check the level?

    I sometimes wish the old Renault 12/16 Glass Cookie Jar was in there - at least you knew what was going on!

    ipb.

    Assume that it's going to need topping up, and approach it with a water can in your hand. Your other hand ...

    604's are an opaque white as well and they are buried down in the engine bay but with the green coolant in there i find if you give the car a bit of a shake you can see the coolant level just

    mind you, you need a bit of good daylight heading in the right direction to do this
