Owner Notification, Change, Parts, Procedure Information
Owners of vehicles involved in this campaign will be notified by Buick Motor Division (see copy of owner letter included with this bulletin).
CHANGE OF OWNER INFORMATION
Dealers are to use the Dealer Communication System (DCS) to provide Buick Motor Division with subsequent Buick owner information. By reporting a
change of owner name or address of a vehicle in campaign status over the DCS, the need to send a CVAR form for that vehicle is eliminated. Terminal
input instructions are covered in the DCS Manual under Section 9, Page 9-J01A and B.
Parts are to be obtained through GMSPO using the following part numbers:
Pressure Warning Switch
1 - As Required
Hydraulic Pump & Motor
1 - As Required
Pump Motor Relay
30 Amp Fuse
It is anticipated that most cars will require a pressure warning switch, but that less than 20% will require a hydraulic pump and motor. All cars will
require relay and fuses. Please adjust your orders accordingly for the hydraulic pump and motor.
To ensure these parts are obtained as soon as possible, they should be ordered from GM Service Parts Operations (GMSPO) on a C.I.O. order, with NO
special instruction code; but order on an Advise Code (2).
Raise hood, install fender covers. Leave ignition key in OFF position. Disconnect battery cables from battery.

CAUTION: Relay must be reinstalled on bracket with connector at bottom to prevent water entry. If relay bracket mounting is disturbed, bracket
must be resecured to front of dash.
Visually inspect hydraulic pump and motor housing for any evidence of brake fluid seepage below the pressure warning switch. If any components
