8 For 1991 models onwards, every 24 months, timed from the original date of delivery, a small clock symbol, together with the word inspection will come on. For the 750i, 750iL, 850iL and M models up to September 1994, the clock symbol comes on at 12 month intervals. It is now time for your car's brake fluid to be changed.
hope that helps

I have the Draper reset tool but you cant reset the brake fluid light with it

Looking through the articles, the ignition key has to be in Pos 2 and the length of time the reset is held determines the reset type - it looks like 3 to 4 seconds for oil reset?

I bought a reset tool from Bavarian Dominator, cost about £15
can be used to reset the clock symbol & service indicator lights
