ISSUE:

A grabbing condition and/or “squeal” noise from the rear brakes may be evident during the first few brake applications when the brakes are cold or after a rainfall. This may be caused by a rear brake lining that is sensitive to humidity.

ACTION:

Replace the rear brake linings. The new linings have been constructed with a material which is less sensitive to humidity. This should reduce the possibility of grabbing and/or noise. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
