Brake Parts, Inc. (Brake Parts) is recalling certain brake master cylinders sold under Raybestos, NAPA, and AC Delco brands, part numbers MC391232, M4840, and 18M2578, respectively sold as aftermarket replacement parts for 2012-2017 Volkswagen Beetle, 2005-2018 Volkswagen Jetta and 2007-2010 Volkswagen Jetta GLI. The crimping of the aluminum housing may be insufficient, allowing the master cylinder piston to pop out of the housing.
