I have a pressure bleeder and the caps in the kit are all screw on mainly for European cars.

Our master cylinder reservoir caps are a bayonet style a bit like a radiator cap. Unbelievably the Vendors can't tell me which of the SP Tools adapter caps will fit a Navara. One or more of the caps below will fit but not even SP Tools can say which one. They provide no dimensions or no photographs of the cap underside. One seller said to buy the part number advertised for Nissan (which one of the three?) and if it didn't fit get a cap from a Wrecker and drill hole and make my own. I've already been down that path and it doesn't work because the cap is not rigid enough. Once pressure is applied the cap lifts and the air escapes.

I feel they're in breach of Australian Consumer Law as they can't guarantee to provide the correct part that's fit for purpose. You wonder how these businesses will survive.

So does anyone know which of these caps will fit the master cylinder reservoir on a Thai built D40?

The other option I was investigating was Aliexpress: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000994646687.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.260438dak5CqNW&mp=1

I'm pretty sure S02 will fit our D40's as the internal diameter of the cap matches. S02 is the middle item in the bottom row in the picture showing the cap undersides.

When I scale the photograph and measure .... S14 looks like the same diameter as S02 but there's no measurements provided. These people make it hard for Customers with scant information.

Australian Online Car Parts were helpful because they actually sourced decent information to allow me to make an informed decision. Part Number SP70821 will fit my 2011 Thai build D40.

I've posted the pdf documents here for members to reference which caps will suit their Navara or any of their other vehicles.
