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

Need to know how to replace brake booster in 1995 dodge intrepid


The brake booster should located directly behind the brake master cylinder. if it is you need to remove the brake master cylinder, do not remove any brake lines, there will be a vacuum line going into the booster, either from the front or the side, it's easy to spot, it's fairly large compared to other lines on you car. under the dash where the brake pedal is, you will need to remove the brake rod form the pedal tiself, as it will most likel be a solid part of the brake booster itself from the factory, then unbolt the booster from the firewall, 4 mounting bolts usually, all 4 might be in the engine compartment or 2 inside the car, 2 in the engine compartment. Before you start go to Auto Zone and look at a replacement booster, it will help you see what you're going to do when you start on you repair.

When i step on the brakes the engine idles fast, I think I need to replace my pb booster, is it a tough job?


it should when you push the brake pedal but only for a second or 2. if idles up and stays up then yes its bad, start,push pedal, and put ear under dash and you should hear it **** air. its not too bad, unbolt the master cylinder, has braided steel lines going to abs modulator, flop forward outa the way. undo vacume hose, then go under dash, take out rod to pedal pin, 4 nuts, and pull it out of the firewall. you do not need to bleed brakes if you do not undo a hydraulic line and be delicate with brake light switch on the pedal
