Hydraulic Brake Booster recall
 
Just got a letter to hand in the wagon, so the Hydraulic Brake Booster can be checked. Anyone had this done yet?

Had mine done a year back. 1 month later I had problems with a brake caliper seizing, don't know if it was related but I never had any problems before the recall.

Davie is in Scotland with a Shogun, would this recall be applicable here in Oz ??

WogsRus 02-08-11 07:21 AM

yeah it sure is its on the recals.gov website

Well it's booked in for next week. Guy reckons they check it for the faulty parts and change them if required, said it would take an hour?? Heard that before lol!

If it's the same issue as the recall here in Oz (about a year ago) then an hour is about all it took to do mine while I waited. That particular issue was the accumulator that applies pressure to the hydraulic master cylinder - I guess it could also be called the booster. The accumulator is powered by a small electric motor, rather than the old vacuum power system.

Is this one on the booster, master cylinder or accumulator? I can remember doing hundreds of HBB accumulators back in the early norties when I worked for MM.

Had it done last week, it was the booster that they replaced with a new part? ?243 pounds, but it was cover by Mits.
