What are the defects?

The piston component material located in the hand brake master cylinder (front brake) may crack or become damaged.
Should that occur it can adversely affect front brake function or performance.

What are the hazards?

Should the front brake master cylinder piston fail, the consequence is a loss of front braking ability.
This can increase the risk of an accident.
