English translation:brake fluid & PTO changeover
Explanation:
"Bremsöl" is a technically questionable German term for "Bremsflüssigkeit" = "brake fluid" as suggested by the previous answerers and confirmed by Schmidt-Pons – Fachwörterbuch der Kfz-Technik and Ernst – Wörterbuch der industriellen Technik

"Zapfwellenumschalter" is PTO (power take-off) changeover (switch/lever/handle), also according to Schmidt-Pons and Ernst. The lever is probably still OK so you might want to stop after "changeover".
