Power Brake Booster Repair Service

What is the Power Brake Booster all about?

A brake booster makes it easier to push the brake pedal. It is a vacuum assist system. If the car did not have a brake booster, it would be very hard to push the brake pedal and stop the car. The brake booster is located underneath the hood in the engine compartment, behind the brake master cylinder.

Keep in mind:

The most common reason why a brake booster fails is because the master cylinder is leaking. Your mechanic should inspect the master cylinder to ensure there are no leaks.

How it's done:

  • Remove/replace power brake booster.
  • Check brake fluid level and condition.
  • Check complete brake system for any leaks in system.
  • Inspect the brake master cylinder.
  • Bleed brake fluid system if needed.

Our recommendation:

If you notice a clear fluid underneath your car or on the wheels, get it inspected as soon as possible. Do not drive the car with brake fluid leaking. It can make the brakes weaker and eventually lead to brake failure.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Power Brake Booster?

  • Very hard, stiff brake pedal.
  • Lack of braking power.
  • Hissing noise when stepping on the brake pedal.

How important is this service?

All services associated with proper function of your brakes are important. In addition to safety issues, ignoring small repairs can quickly lead to more serious (and more expensive) problems.

Despite my fact that my car had died in a precarious spot and that it was not a cool and breezy day James had a great attitude throughout the process and worked tirelessly until my car was running again. I knew prior to this repair session that there were other issues with my car I'd still need to address down the road (very minor things) and I'm already planning to request James for those repairs as well.

What an easy transaction from booking online to working with Peter, I would not change a thing. Peter was an hour early, spent a few minutes talking with me about the cars problem and got busy working. He had to run to the auto parts store and let me know he was leaving. He finished up in less than the scheduled time and left everything clean. I found my new mechanic!
