Risk
This product poses a risk of injuries because during engine warm up in low ambient temperatures, it is possible that the non return valve within the brake vacuum pump may fail to release and will not continue to supply vacuum to the brake booster. Although the system will continue to meet all legal braking requirements, the customer may experience a hard brake pedal with increased stopping distances if the vacuum stored in the booster is used before the non return valve releases once the engine has reached normal operating temperature.
