29/01/02R/2001/129MITSUBISHIShogunPOSSIBLE LOSS OF POWER ASSISTANCE TO BRAKESThere is a possibility that the accumulator diaphragm in the Hydraulic Brake Booster (HBB) might be manufactured improperly. This may cause the nitrogen pressure in the accumulator to drop. The following two symptoms may result :- 1) The brake assist might be delayed in sudden hard braking. 2) Relatively large brake pedal loads might be required after long-term parking and first engine start since specific brake pressure takes time to accumulate.The Hydraulic Brake Booster nitrogen accumulator will be replaced with a modified one on all affected vehicles.4319SHOGUN01/01/200030/07/2001
