|07/24/00||Vehicle description: non-abs equipped passenger vehicles. the brake master cylinder piston retainer snap ring may have been bent inward during the assembly process. the master cylinder piston may be in a "brake applied" position due to the damaged piston retainer snap ring. when the piston is in the applied position, the fluid compensation ports are closed which results in a brake drag condition.
If the brake overheat, brake fading could lead to an increase in needed stopping distance. should a driver not anticipate the extra stopping distance, this condition could cause a crash.
Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder.
