The plastic reservoir comes off but it takes a good amount of force. As was already mentioned, you'll need two flat putty knives and two medium size skinny screwdrivers. The putty knives protect the soft aluminum when you pry up with the two screwdrivers. It'll seem like you're going to break the plastic but I've popped several of these reservoirs off and they can take a lot of force. Once it's off, you can clean the funk and grit out of the o-ring groove and mating surfaces.



I agree that the valve covers dont get so hot that you need hi-temp paint.



And yep, the little screws hold the brake light switch in place. Don't feel bad -- these switches go bad and are way easy and cheap to replace.
