Brake Fluid Reservoir Cap Boot Cut

Hey guys,

Probably a dumb question. My brake pedal was hitting the floor, causing me to think that I needed to bleed my brakes. Well I did and as I was filling the master cylinder, I play with the rubber boot that sits inside the cap to the master cylinder. I extended the cap and realized it has a small slit in the bottom of the boot. Would this cause air to enter (cause the break system) to lose it's effectiveness?

thanks

It can let moisture in which is a bad thing. You should replace it.

I just went to the dealer and and purchased another cap with the boot. It has a slit in the bottom as well. I guess this is the way it is supposed to be.
