Continental Automotive Systems is recalling 8,384 Hydraulic Electronic MKC1 brake units, with part numbers 10-1202 and 25-1202.
A deviation in the welding process can cause the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU) rotor and shaft to separate, which may cause a reduction of braking assist, and a loss of ABS.
A loss of braking assistance and ABS functionality can reduce overall braking performance, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Continental Automotive will work with the affected vehicle manufacturers to provide a remedy through their dealership networks.
The manufacturer has not yet provided a schedule for recall notification.
Owners may contact Continental Automotive customer service at (248) 393-5300.
