How to replace brake booster on 2005 Pontiac aztek


Step 1 - Locate the Brake Booster The brake booster is located adjacent to the master cylinder. There will be 4 mounting screws protruding through the booster. The booster is also attached to the brake pedal in the interior of the car. This is where you will start work in replacing the brake booster.
Step 2 - Remove the Brake Booster Start by locating the booster rod that goes through the firewall and is attached to the brake pedal on the interior of the car. Typically, there is a cotter pin that secures the rod to the pedal, but there may also be nuts. When removing any fasteners in the course of this job, make sure to retain the nuts, cotter pins, and various other fasteners as the new brake booster will not come with replacement fasteners.
Remove the fasteners, whether it is a cotter pin or nuts. Slide the rod off the brake pedal. Disconnect the vacuum brake line that connects to the booster. In the engine compartment, there are four bolts securing the booster to the master cylinder and firewall. Loosen and remove these nuts. Remove the nuts (there are usually 2 in addition to the 4 that have already been removed) that secure the brake booster to the master cylinder. Wiggle the brake booster away from the master cylinder. There is a seal between the two. You will need to keep this as the new part does not generally come with another one. Remove the brake booster.
Step 3 - Install the New Brake Booster Set the new brake booster on the four mounting screws. Tighten the nuts on the bolts to the master cylinder. Insert the push rod through the firewall. Start these by hand so that the threads are not ruined. Reattach the vacuum hose, then the nuts to the 4 mounting screws. Reattach the push rod to the brake pedal by whatever means it was originally secured with, whether by cotter pin or by bolts.
Step 4 - Bleed the Brakes You will need to bleed the brakes after replacing the brake booster

    Install power brake booster on 1988 ford ranger


    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION NOTE: Make sure that the booster rubber reaction disc is properly installed if the master cylinder push rod is removed or accidentally pulled out. A dislodged disc may cause excessive pedal travel and extreme operation sensitivity. The disc is black compared to the silver colored valve plunger that will be exposed after the push rod and front seal is removed. The booster unit is serviced as an assembly and must be replaced if the reaction disc cannot be properly installed and aligned, or if it cannot be located within the unit itself.

    1. Disconnect the stop lamp switch wiring to prevent running the battery down.
    2. Support the master cylinder from the underside with a prop.
    3. Remove the master cylinder-to-booster retaining nuts.
    4. Loosen the clamp that secures the manifold vacuum hose to the booster check valve, and remove the hose. Remove the booster check valve.
    5. Pull the master cylinder off the booster and leave it supported by the prop, far enough away to allow removal of the booster assembly.
    6. From inside the cab on vehicles equipped with push rod mounted stop lamp switch, remove the retaining pin and slide the stop lamp switch, push rod, spacers and bushing off the brake pedal arm.
    7. From the engine compartment remove the bolts that attach the booster to the dash panel. To install:
    8. Mount the booster assembly on the engine side of the dash panel by sliding the bracket mounting bolts and valve operating rod in through the holes in the dash panel. NOTE: Make certain that the booster push rod is positioned on the correct side of the master cylinder to install onto the push pin prior to tightening the booster assembly to the dash.
    9. From inside the cab, install the booster mounting bracket-to-dash panel retaining nuts.
    10. Position the master cylinder on the booster assembly, install the retaining nuts, and remove the prop from underneath the master cylinder.
    11. Install the booster check valve. Connect the manifold vacuum hose to the booster check valve and secure with the clamp.
    12. From inside the cab on vehicles equipped with push rod mounted stop lamp switch, install the bushing and position the switch on the end of the push rod. Then install the switch and rod on the pedal arm, along with spacers on each side, and secure with the retaining pin.
    13. Connect the stop lamp switch wiring.
    14. Start the engine and check brake operation.

    How do you get a power booster off a 1999 town and country van?


    remove the battery tray, the throttle body, and the egr valve in order to slide it through there, it's still a tight fit with those pulled but you should be able to get it out. For the longer answer I've included the procedure from the chrysler manual.

    1. With engine not running, pump the brake pedal until a firm pedal is achieved (4-5 strokes).
    2. Remove both battery cables from battery.
    3. Remove the battery thermal guard and the battery from the battery tray.
    4. Remove the air inlet resonator and hoses as an assembly from the throttle body and air cleaner housing.
    5. If vehicle is equipped with speed control, unplug wiring harness connector from the speed control servo. Then disconnect vacuum lines from the speed control servo and vacuum reservoir on battery tray.
    6. Remove bolt attaching the speed control servo bracket to the battery tray. Slide the bracket forward to unhook it from the battery tray and remove.
    7. Remove the 2 bolts and the nut attaching the battery tray to the body of the vehicle.
    8. Remove the wiring harness connector from the EGR valve transducer.
    9. Remove wiring harness connectors from throttle position sensor and AIS motor on throttle body
    10. Remove the 2 bolts attaching the throttle body to the intake manifold and the clip attaching the wiring harness to the throttle cable bracket. Then remove the throttle body and throttle cable bracket as an assembly from the intake manifold.
    11. Remove wiring harness connector from brake fluid level sensor in master cylinder fluid reservoir.
    12. Clean the area where the master cylinder assembly attaches to the power brake booster. Use only a solvent such as Mopar Brake Parts Cleaner or an equivalent.
    13. Remove clip, attaching drain hose for wiper module to brake tube at master cylinder. Remove drain hose from wiper module. Remove the 2 nuts, attaching the master cylinder to the vacuum booster. NOTE: It is not necessary to remove the brake tubes from the master cylinder when removing the master cylinder from the vacuum booster.
    14. Remove master cylinder and brake tubes as an assembly from the vacuum booster. When master cylinder is removed, lay it out of the way on top of the left motor mount
    15. Remove the EGR Valve and the vacuum transducer as an assembly from the intake manifold.
    16. Disconnect vacuum hose from check valve located on vacuum booster. Do not remove check valve from power brake booster.
    17. Locate the vacuum booster input rod to brake pedal connection under the instrument panel. Position a small screwdriver between the center tang on the power brake booster input rod to brake pedal pin retaining clip.
    18. Rotate screwdriver enough to allow retaining clip center tang to pass over end of brake pedal pin. Then pull retaining clip off brake pedal pin. Discard retaining clip. It is not to be reused. Replace only with a new retaining clip when assembling.
    19. Remove the 4 nuts attaching the power brake vacuum booster to the dash panel. Nuts are accessible from under dash panel in area of the steering column and pedal bracket assembly.
    20. From outside the vehicle, slide power brake vacuum booster forward until its mounting studs clear dash panel. Then tilt the booster up and toward the center of vehicle to remove. CAUTION: Do not attempt to disassemble the power brake vacuum booster it is to be serviced only as a complete assembly.

    How do you install a brake booster on a 82 chevy silverado


    If you are indeed sure that you need the bootster, (you should hear a pronounced hissing sound from within the truck while depressing the pedal) it is a simple procedure. Remove the circlip or pintle type clip retaining the shaft to the pedal. Grab a flashlight and locat the four mounting nuts for the booster from inside the vehicle while lying on your back. Loosen theses slightly. Remove the master cylinder from the booster without removing any brake lines from the master cylinder. Leave the master hanging carefully in front of the booster. pull it gently towards the front of the master and away from the mounting bolts. Go back inside under the dash and finish removing the booster mounting nuts. Take note if there are any washers anfd don't allow them to fall beneath the floor carpet. Insallation is the reverse of removal. Thank you, Dana
