These vehicles use a vacuum pump to supply power assist to the braking system. Due to insufficient lubrication this vacuum pump may fail. Failure of the brake vacuum pump would result in a reduction in braking power that could increase the risk of a crash. In order to correct this concern, dealers will install a locking ring in the camshaft to retain the camshaft seal disk in the proper location. This will ensure proper oiling of the vacuum pump. Note: This recall is an expansion of an earlier recall.

 

 

These vehicles use a vacuum pump to supply power assist for the braking system. The vacuum pump can fail unexpectedly due to insufficient lubrication. This would reduce braking efficiency, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will make modifications to allow for proper lubrication of the vacuum pump in order to correct this concern.

On certain vehicles, when extended to their highest position, the front seat head restraints exceed the allowable downward movement limit of 25mm, as determined by federal safety regulations. In the event of a crash, the head restraint may unexpectedly move down slightly if it was adjusted to the fully extended position, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will attach a clamp to the front seat head restraint posts to correct this concern.
