    Was looking for more detail as to how to remove spring clip(I have never seen that style clip before. I'm 50 and have been working cars since age 15) and cruise control sensor, however, I conquered it without destroying the clip. The accessibility is extremely difficult, but, mission accomplished. Thanks

There should be two or four mounting bolts accessed from under the dash. Usually the booster has studs and you remove the nuts.

Replace brake booster

here you go...

The power brake booster is a tandem vacuum suspended unit. Some models may be equipped with a single or dual function vacuum switch which activates a brake warning light should low booster vacuum be present. Under normal operation, vacuum is present on both sides of the diaphragms. When the brakes are applied, atmospheric air is admitted to one side of the diaphragms to provide power assistance.

1994-97 Models
See Figures 1 and 2
  1. Apply the parking brake and block the drive wheels.
  2. Remove the master cylinder-to-power brake booster nuts, then reposition the master cylinder and combination valve out of the way; if necessary, support the master cylinder on a wire to prevent damaging the brake lines.

When removing the master cylinder from the power brake booster, it is not necessary to disconnect the hydraulic lines, therefore the brake system should not have to be bled.
  1. Disconnect the vacuum hose from the power brake booster.


Fig. Fig 1: Common power brake booster attachment

  1. From under the dash, remove the retainer and washer from the brake pedal on 1994 utility models. On all other models, remove the retainer and brake switch from the brake pedal.
  2. Disconnect the pushrod from the brake pedal.
  3. From under the dash, remove the power brake booster-to-cowl retaining nuts.
  4. Back under the hood, remove the power brake booster and the gasket from the cowl.

To install:
  1. Position the booster to the cowl using a new gasket.
  2. Install the bo oster retaining nuts and tighten to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) 1994 utility models, 24 ft. lbs. (32 Nm) on 1994 pick-up models and 27 ft. lbs. (36 Nm) on all 1995-97 models.
  3. Connect the pedal pushrod and install the washer or switch and the retainer.
  4. Connect the vacuum hose.

Fig. Fig. 2: Checking the piston booster rod using the gauge tool

  1. For all vehicles cover ed in this guide, gauge the booster rod:
    1. Apply 25 in. Hg (85 kPa) of vacuum using a hand held vacuum pump or apply maximum engine vacuum.
    2. Chec k the maximum and minimum rod lengths using J-37839 or an equivalent pushrod height gauge.
    3. If the piston is not within limits, install a service adjustable piston rod and adjust it to the correct length.
  2. Reposition the master cylinder and combination valve bracket to the booster studs, then secure using the retaining nuts. For details, please refer to the master cylinder procedure located earlier in this section.
  3. Start and run the engine, then check for proper booster operation.

I have a 1995 GM Suburban and when I press on the brake I hear noise like air and I have to almost touch the brake all the way to the floor. I was told that it could be the master cyclinder. If it is...

If it sounds like rushing air when you hit the brakes I would suspect the vacuum booster first. There is no air venting through the master cylinder but the booster is connected to a vacuum line. Kind of a pain in the *** to change, you have to remove the master cylinder, then get up underneath the dash and remove the bolts which go through the firewall and hold the booster. You may also have to disconnect the actuating rod which connects to the brake pedal arm. I would toss in a new master cylinder too when you put it back together. Do not put a used wear item in your vehicle unless you want to do the job again soon.
