This could allow misalignment of the front brake pads with respect to the front brake rotor, reducing front braking efficiency and increasing stopping distances.
Correction: Dealers will replace the front brake caliper bracket with an updated version. The front brake pads will also be replaced and, if the front brake fluid shows signs of overheating, it will be replaced and the system flushed.
