Recall defect descripton: Investigations have identified the wiper arm mechanism may chafe against the brake booster vacuum line. If this chafing occurs, it could lead to a gradual reduction of the power assisted braking and more effort would need to be applied to the brake pedal than usual to slow the vehicle down. In a worst case the reduction of braking assistance could occur suddenly without any prior warning

Volvo Recall action: Inspect the brake booster vacuum line. If it is chafed then it should be replaced and routed correctly. If the line is not chafed it should re-routed to ensure no issues going forward.
