Question Instructions for Resetting Brake Fluid Service Indicator?

As per someone's post, it can be done through the stalk or something. Can anyone post the instructions? I need to do it myself since I am getting the fluid flushed myself and not at the stealer.

Thanks guys,
Anvar

-put in the car key
-press Start without food on the brake
-now press and hold the trip counter AND the board computer button for some seconds
-the center display should now show you the reset menu
-go through the menu options with the up-/downkey of the board computer
-choose break fluid and press and hold the board computer button for two seconds

Now it should be resetted.
