Every week I have to top up my brake fluid. There are no leaks anywhere underneath the car/wheels or inside. Can fluid enter the servo chamber because there is nowhere else I can think of and I'm an ex mechanic!

Thanks for the answer, would you think that the servo would be savable with just replacing the master cylinder please?

The brake fluid can damage the servo diaphragm so would be advisable to get out / dry up as much as possible on the inside .You might be lucky and get away with it but often needs replacing .
