"Nissan is conducting a voluntary recall campaign on approximately 67,089 Micra and Sunny vehicles in Africa, Asia, Europe, India (22,188), Latin America and Caribbean, and Middle East markets to replace the master brake cylinder
," said a Nissan Motor India spokesperson.
The vacuum brake booster has become redundant, while the brake pedal and master brake cylinder
become a single operating mechanism that is hydraulically uncoupled from the rest of the system by valves, and serves only to record the brake request.
The models are being recalled because of the use of non-Toyota branded brake fluid, which does not keep the master brake cylinder
Castings shown and discussed were an automotive wheel and brake caliper in 356 T6, a shift fork in A390 (high silicon), a master brake cylinder
in 2014 (very low silicon), and a manifold in ADC-12, a conventional diecasting alloy.
This problem can lead to erosion of the brake lining's connection point with the brake cylinder
because of trapped water with impure chemical materials in the rubber part of the brake lining.
The models are being recalled to replace a brake cylinder
that may leak fluid.
