51101-C Completed

I wrote an article about my recall repair and posted it in My Blog.

Check it out!

Bosch 51101-C Brake Caliper Recall - Done !

Either post a comment in the Blog or we can talk about it here. I was #7 at the dealership that had the recall done.

I've uploaded a few other pictures for this thread and to support the Blog entry. If you have any questions, just ask away.

Pic#1: Oemy's Speed Bleeders, (OSDSB)
Pic#2: 3 previous recall jobs, tagged and ID'd by VIN#. Note silver and dark calipers.
Pic#3: Collaterally damaged ABS sensor - Not mine.
Pic#4: Collaterally damaged Rotors and Pads - Not mine.
Pic#5: Rack full of new Bosch calipers.
Pic#6: Picture of Larry's office and my rig.
Pic#7: My thinnest brake pad on the drive axle. > 50% wear. Replaced both sides.
Pic#8: All 4 rotors smooth with no heat or stress cracks.
Pic#9: The provided Synthetic 450 DOT3 Brake Fluid.
Pic#10. Right Front mounted caliper on the steer axle. I retained the original brake pads.

More Pictures ....

Here are a few more pictures that I took.

Pic#1: Brake pads, Semi-Metallic (see bottom of the label)
Pic#2: Brake fluid arrived in cases.
Pic#3: Collaterally damaged rotor showing pad transfer.
Pic#4: Collaterally damaged pad showing transfer.
Pic#5: Larry is very Patriotic. Was stationed at the MYR AFB during his service with the USAF.

If you rotors are OK like mine and the linings are simply down due to wear and tear you might want to take advantage of the opportunity to have your brakes refurbished. If your dealer finds a collaterally damaged component, they will take a picture and send that to the RSM who will make the assessment as to whether or not your equipment is collaterally damaged.

Thanks Driver this is great information. I have an appointment to get my recall done on 9/21/10 and this will really help. I was wondering what the average additional cost will be if I need rotors and pads? What if I only need pads?

I have a 2005 Allegro BAy 37DB with 44,300 miles on it and haven't had any problems with the brakes except several years ago coming from California to Denver my PS rear brake had gotten a little hot. I will definitely get the brakes done at this time.

Mike,

How do the brakes feel? About the same?

I was concerned about mixing this synthetic DOT 3 brake fluid with the original DOT 3 fluid.

Here is a note from Johnsen's product literature,

Brake Maintenance Products

Premium DOT 3 Brake Fluid
Part # 2212-8, 7 oz., 12 per case
Part # 2212, 12 oz., 12 per case

Part # 2232, Quart, 12 per case
Part # 2234, Gal., 4 per case
Part # 2241, 5 Gal., one each
Part # 2255, 55 Gal., one each
Premium DOT 3 Brake Fluid has a minimum boiling point of 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Meets and exceeds DOT 3 and all other Federal and SAE specifications and standards for motor vehicle brake fluids. Mixes with all DOT 3 approved brake fluids. Designed for use in disc, drum and ABS brake systems.

I might come down and have Larry do mine in early November- Especially since you told me about his background- USAF

Cheers,

I talked to three WSCs in my local area today. The first one has no clue when he might get parts. The second has had them backordered for awhile and is hoping to get them in two weeks. The third has parts and is doing work and said he would happily put me down at #275 on his list. I asked how fast were they getting them done and he replied, We are trying to do 10 per week. Hmmmm...27.5 weeks. Exhale.......slowly.

Max, As far as I know (AFAIK) there isn't any such thing as a dinosaur that has hydraulic brakes.

Point is that brake fluid since day one when they assigned it a DOT3 rating, has been and continues to be synthetic. I think the marketing department at Johnsen's like to see the word on their products.

The brakes feel the same, present with a reassuring grip of the situation.

I believe you met Larry in MYR at the 2008 Rally. He's got his USAF picture in his office. He's a good guy. When you get here we'll have to go and do lunch at Joey Doggs while we're waitng.

Whaler, We got Larry to come to Ocean Lakes in 2008 and he has assured me that is anyone needs service or an look see that he will come out to the campground. This goes for any motorhome or truck by the way.
