The front brake line where it is mounted at the front strut could become detached, allowing the brake hose to contact the tire. This contact may cause the brake hose to wear and leak, which can cause brake loss. Dealers will install an additional retainer clip to secure the brake line and make sure there has been no damage to the hoses.

The brake pedal arm may detach from its support bracket. If this occurs, braking may become impossible, which can cause an accident. Dealers will check the brake pedal arm pivot shaft for proper mounting and positioning. An additional pin will be installed to secure the shaft to the bracket.
The brake line may become chafed due to repeated contact with the oil lines that come from the oil filter housing. Chafed brake lines may lead to brake fluid leaks and a loss of hydraulic brake system pressure, which may result in an accident. Dealers will install a rubber spacer below the plastic oil filter housing carrier to prevent sagging and contact between the oil and brake lines. Corroded brake lines will be replaced.
The transmission gear position indicator switch may lose contact, which can cause the vehicle to go into a fail safe mode. Performance will be reduced, which may cause a crash. Dealers will replace the transmission gear position indicator switch.
The lower steering shaft where it fits into the steering gear has a retainer collar that may not be fully installed. This could cause the shaft to separate from the steering gear, which could cause a loss of steering control. Dealers will inspect the collar for proper positioning and adjust it as necessary.
