The push/actuating rod may not be properly screwed onto the brake booster and could become detached. As a result, there would no longer be any mechanical connection between the foot brake and the brake booster. Consequently, braking will be possible only by actuating the regulated emergency-braking function of the electronic parking brake (EPB) using the EPB switch on the central console.
The Volkswagen Passat vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 15 November 2019 and 12 May 2021.
