Certain light duty pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles have a clearance between the front right-hand brake pipe and the body cross sill that could decrease to the point of allowing contact. If contact occurs and the brake pipe becomes damaged, there can be a loss of brake fluid and pressure. The brake warning lamp will be activated when the brake fluid lever reaches the indicator limit. During braking, the pedal will be lower than normal and stopping distances will be longer. If this occurs when stopping distance is limited, a crash could occur.
Dealers will inspect the front right-hand brake pipe for wear. If there are signs of wear, this section of the brake pipe will be replaced with a new designed brake pipe section. If there are no signs of wear on the brake pipe, the dealer will install a spacer clip to ensure sufficient clearance between the brake pipe and the body cross sill. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during December 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.
