According to Economic Times, the purpose of the recall is to replace a faulty master brake cylinder
fitted on the cars.
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.
Nissan is investigating vehicles from the 2007 to 2008 model year that were affected by brake fluid leaks from the master brake cylinder
In the worst case, a Warwick garage failed to fix 14 out of 26 faults on the car, including a leaking brake cylinder
We made another change to the mounting of the master brake cylinder
, which is now mounted to the front of the dash," says Woychowski.
Pressure testing on the plastic brake cylinder
has been successful at ten times the maximum working pressure.
Testing showed minimal wear after a million cycles at more than 75% of the maximum pressure output for the brake cylinder
According to a report Hino submitted to the Land, Infrastructure and Transport Ministry, the brake may cause the wheel section of the vehicles to heat up, posing the risk of a fire, due to a defective oil brake cylinder
As examples, he cited a container used for storing nuclear waste and a brake cylinder
, both of which were used in numerical simulations and shown in color graphics depicting temperature, gradient, cooling rate or solidification time distribution on the casting surface or in various sections of a casting.
The models are being recalled because of the problems with its master brake cylinder
When pressure is applied to the brake pedal, the pressure increases and the brake cylinder
extends and presses the pads onto the drum surface or disk.
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.
