Recall 19V410000

Loss Of Braking Power In Rear Brake System

Recall Details

For mobility access vehicles modified by Braun Corporation, the rear brake system may lose system pressure due to use of incorrect tube nut fittings for the brake lines. Dealers will install an adapter to correct the issue free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

For vehicles modified by Braun Corporation to become mobility accessible vans, the brake lines may have incorrect tube nut fittings installed, which can cause the brake system fluid pressure to drop. This can cause a loss of braking power in the rear brake system, extending stopping distances and increasing risk of a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Toyota must be performed by a Toyota dealership. Braun will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in June, 2019. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Toyota dealerships for assistance, or contact Braun customer service at 1-800-488-0359. Toyota dealerships will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
