[Docket No. NHTSA-2005-20858; Notice 1]


DOT Chemical, Receipt of Petition for Decision of Inconsequential 
Noncompliance

    DOT Chemical has determined that certain containers of brake fluid 
which it manufactured in June 2004 do not comply with S5.1.7, S5.1.9, 
and S5.1.10 of 49 CFR 571.116, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 
(FMVSS) No. 116, ``Motor vehicle brake fluids.'' DOT Chemical has filed 
an appropriate report pursuant to 49 CFR part 573, ``Defect and 
Noncompliance Reports.''
    Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h), DOT Chemical has 
petitioned for an exemption from the notification and remedy 
requirements of 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this 
noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety.
    This notice of receipt of DOT Chemical's petition is published 
under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120 and does not represent any agency 
decision or other exercise of judgment concerning the merits of the 
petition.
    Affected are a total of approximately 50,000 containers of DOT 4 
brake fluid, lot numbers KMF02 and KMF03, manufactured in June 2004. 
FMVSS No. 116 requires that, when tested as referenced in S5.1.7 
``Fluidity and appearance at low temperature,'' S5.1.9 ``Water 
tolerance,'' and S5.1.10 ``Compatibility,'' the brake fluid shall show 
no crystallization or sedimentation. The subject brake fluid shows 
crystallization and sedimentation when tested as referenced in S5.1.7 
at -40[deg] F and -58[deg] F, sedimentation when tested as referenced 
in S5.1.9 at -40[deg] F, and crystallization when tested as referenced 
in S5.1.10 at -40[deg] F.
    DOT Chemical believes that the noncompliance is inconsequential to 
motor vehicle safety and that no corrective action is warranted. DOT 
Chemical states that there are fiber-like crystals in the fluid, which 
are borate salts, and

are a natural part (no contamination) of DOT 4 brake fluid 
production (just fallen out of solution in some packaged goods) and 
have not demonstrated any flow restrictions even at extended periods 
of low temperatures at -40[deg] F. Furthermore, when the fluid is 
subjected to temperatures in a normal braking system, the crystals 
go back into solution in some cases not to reappear at all at 
ambient temperatures.
