Has anyone seen a reservoir like this?

It looks like it is coming apart in between the plastic.

Also looks like it could be leaking.

As far as I can tell most reservoirs look like that...

I'm sorry I'm completely missing what you're trying to point out. What does coming apart between the plastic mean?

It ought to, though I can't figure out what those two nubs on it are for or if they're even functional... But yes, essentially any reservoir will work, all they do is hold brake fluid and supply it to the master cylinder.

It used to look more solid all around it. Now the plastic looks clouded. Look at the second picture in between Upper and Lower.

That looks like the rubber booty (that sits underneath the cap) making contact with the resevoir sides. Sometimes the booty gets stuck in weird shapes, pop the cap off and makes sure it's shaped like a cup.
