    You shouldn't drive without it, or you risk getting dirt in the reservoir.  If you do tape it down, do NOT obstruct the vent.

    The bleeder screw rubber cap should have no pressure on it. If the bleeder screws leak you need a new caliper.

    Put 3 to 4 loops of  teflon tape (plumber's tape) on the threads and try to put the cap back on.  Put the tape in the tightening direction.  No luck, duct tape the cap to the reservoir.
