Left-Front Brake Line May Fracture
Brakes, May 29, 2003

RepairPal Expert Overview

The left-front brake line may be susceptible to fracturing due to a manufacturing defect. 


Please contact your GM dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.


The left-front brake hard line may be susceptible to fracturing due to a circumferential score in a random location caused by the manufacturing process. If the line fractures, brake pedal travel will immediately increase and braking performance will be reduced. This could increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the left-front brake pipe. The recall began May 29, 2003. The GM recall number is 03025.
