Discussion:

The previously listed vehicle's braking systems are equipped with rear brake linings that contain asbestos fibers. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. The "OSHA Preferred Method" for dust control mandated by OSHA's final rule on asbestos (29 CFR 1910.1001, Appendix F) recommends to clean braking components with a wet type cleaner such as Pentastar Service Equipment CT-500, CT-200, or HE-1450.

CAUTION: DO NOT CLEAN BRAKE PARTS WITH COMPRESSED AIR OR BY DRY BRUSHING.
