Mini Spares recalls brake master cylinders


Seattle, WA Oct 24, 2019 –Got an email a couple of days ago containing some very serious information:


Hi Ed,

A recall notice just appeared on the MkI forum. The image Mark Forster posted appears below. The link to the recall notice is:

This may be something you may or may not want to put on the blog since the forum still appears to be down.



If you have installed a new brake master cylinder in the past year it may be one of these defective Heritage brake master cylinders. This recall also may effect brake master cylinders purchased through other parts suppliers.

The master cylinders in question were manufactured between September 2018 and January 2019 and sold from September 2018 onward.  

If you think your Mini may have one of these do not drive it.  Carefully read the FAQ in the website link.  It appears that the number of affected master cylinders is likely very small and the problem would probably be found quickly (brake fluid on your feet).

Full details are provided in the attached news release from Mini Spares.

– Special thanks to Kelley Mascher for contributing this information.
