Rear Brake Line Leaks Fluid

Recall Details

The right rear brake line may rub on the rear subframe bracket and develop a fluid leak. Dealers will inspect the brake line for signs of wear, make necessary bracket and line adjustments, and replace any lines found wearing free of charge to resolve the problem.

Our Quick Take

The right rear brake line may leak fluid due to rubbing and wearing on a rear frame bracket. Loss of brake fluid will result in poor braking performance or loss of braking ability.
