Removal of brake booster from a 1979 Mercedes 450SL

I need to remove the brake booster from a 1979 Mercedes 450SL, but dont see where I would get access to the 4 removal bolts.  They are on the car interior side of the firewall (not the engine side) and so arent visible.  Any idea how to get to these?  Thanks.

How do you replace the brake booster on a 1989 Lincoln town car?


Remove vacuum hose from booster. Remove the two nuts holding the brake master cylinder to the booster. Carefully move booster to one side for ease of removal. Under the dashboard drivers side, remove the clip connecting the brake pedal to the booster actuator rod. Remove the two nuts holding the booster to the firewall. Outside, remove the booster. Installation is reverse of removal. There may be an adjustable rod in the replacement booster. It is important that it is adjusted properly or you may not have brakes or you could damage the master cylinder. Looking at the old booster, check to see how far the rod extends out the front of the booster. Check the new booster and make sure that the new rod extends the same distance. DO NOT ADJUST THE RODS TO THE SAME LENGTH BY PLACING THEM SIDE BY SIDE! Different designs could cause different rod length internal to the booster. What is important is the amount that extends out from the booster. This distance will not change since the master cylinder bolts directly up to the booster.

Brakes r hard to press,seems like brake booster needs replacing. is it any tricks 2 changing da brake booster?


Quite a few variables here. Always is some trouble, disconnecting the brake pedal inside under the firewall, then removal of the brake resevoir, then the booster. Before you go into all that labor, did it happen gradually, then it can be a booster. If it occured suddenly, trace all the vacuum sources to the booster. It can be something as simple as a broken/open vacuum leak.

Window regulators and related electicial system


Of course the first thought would be the fuse so you might check it one more time. After that the one thing both side have in coman is the driver side as you can roll the pass side up and down from there. So you may have a broken wire or curcit on that side, maybe the power wire is broken in the rubber boot that conects the door to the car on that side. A simple test light would help track it down.
