Number Involved: 2,085
Dates of Manufacture: January 1998 – May 2002
Defect: On certain passenger vehicles and limousines, the low pressure brake
fluid feed pipe between the master cylinder and remote reservoir has the
potential to trap or retain air. This air could enter the master cylinder
and cause excessive pedal travel and partial failure of the primary circuit,
increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Dealers will replace both the feed pipe and the brake fluid
reservoir. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected
to begin during August 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy
within a reasonable time should contact Rolls-Royce at 1-800-777-6923.
