Question Brake fluid change service indicator reset?

Hi, hope someone can help. I've just completed my first Inspection I service and the car still works. That's the good news. My question is, does anyone know how to remove the little clock symbol service indicator that tells you that a brake fluid change is required?
I've reset the oil change / inspection I service indicator using the turn key press left button technique, but is there a similar method to get rid of the brake fluid change symbol?

Same method actually...when your little clock symbol is on it will only change the clock symbol and not effect the SIA.

Brake fluid change indicator

You're right. Thanks very much for that. I had the Inspection I and brake fluid reminders on at the same time. The first reset had got rid of the Inspection I but I had to do it again as you suggested to clear the brake fluid timer.
Thanks again.

There is a brake fluid timer similar to the oil and inspection? How does one locate such a timer and what does it take into account while counting down?

The timer is a small clock symbol (about 4 x 4 mm) central on the same display as the service indicator / mileometer. It's described I believe in the handbook. I think it's an entirely time based display (comes on every two years) and doesn't take into account driving style like the other service indicators do.
