Tried to power bleed the clutch cylinders

Yesterday, I tried to use the Power Bleeder to flush/bleed the clutch slave and master cylinders. When I attached the Power Bleeder to the brake reservoir on the 240D and pumped up the bleeder, I had fluid leaking profusely out of the reseveroir. It was coming from the brittle and cracked black rubber caps. Are these low level sensors with overflow check valves?

How do the shops use their bleeders on this system? Is there something I am missing and can I get replacement caps somewhere?
