Defect: Investigations have identified that the wiper arm mechanism may chafe against the brake booster vacuum line. If this chafing occurs, it could lead to a gradual reduction of the power assisted braking and more effort would need to be applied to the brake pedal than usual to slow the vehicle down. In the worst cases, the reduction of braking assistance could occur suddenly without any prior warning
Action: Inspect the brake booster vacuum line. If it is chafed then it should be replaced and routed correctly when fitted. If the line is not chafed it should re-routed to ensure no issues going forward.
Launch Date: 14 September 2012
