Problem description:

The brake master cylinder might get contaminated by foreign material particles which come from the clutch slave cylinder sealing. These particles adhere to the brake master cylinder seals eventually causing an internal leakage on the brake master cylinder. This may cause no pressure in the brake system and a reduction in braking power where the brake pedal is applied slowly and constantly.

Opel Astra 1.6 Diesel with manual transmission (MY 2016 – 2018) are affected by this recall.

Company recall code: 18-C-120 (E181803130)

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Opel dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle's history

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
