Volkswagen Brake Master Cylinder Recall

Volkswagen has announced that 38 vehicles have been affected by a Brake Master Cylinder recall.

Tenneco Automotive (Tenneco) is recalling certain Beck/Arnley Master Cylinders, part number 072-9831, sold as aftermarket or replacement parts for 2004-2018 Volkswagen Jetta, and 2012-2019 Volkswagen Beetle vehicles. The fluid seal crimp on the master cylinder may be insufficient, causing brake fluid to leak or the cylinder to come apart.

If there is a brake fluid leak, it can reduce braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash.

Owners may contact Tenneco customer service at 1-800-625-9319.
