Note: An Excel file was included in this bulletin posting that allows you to look up the VIN and automatically determine the days that have passed since the date of production.  Whenever the file is opened, it creates a “to the current day” age for each vehicle.
  • All affected vehicles must have the initial brake lever test performed with the O-ring installed on the handgrip.
  • All affected vehicles must be kept for 24 hours and the test performed again after reparis are made.
