Hi,
You forgot to bleed properly the hydraulic brake system!
First to bleed is the brake master, front wheels, brake limiter, and the rear brakes.

Try that first and make sure no air is in the system!
Tell us afterwards to assist you further!

SOURCE: replacing brake booster in 2001

Not that I am aware of. My book on the 2001-2007 Escape does not indicate any adjustment in that push rod. double check the part number against the part number that should be installed by calling another parts store and asking if they have the part and then compare the number they give you with the number you have. Make sure the brands are the same. The problem you may have is that a lot of stores assume that all parts in these year models are interchangeable between the Escape and Mazda Tribute. In fact many are since both vehicle were built in the same factory with very few differences. In fact the repair manuals usually list both vehicles in the same book.

Honda passport booster push rod adjustment


Adjust the brake pedal pushrod so there is a small clearance or free play in the brake pedal linkage equivalent to a couple of millimetres of free play on the pedal.

It is then extremely important to ensure there is a clearance of about 0.010" between the brake master cylinder piston and the booster pushrod. In the absence of the official service tool some careful measuring will be required. Some boosters have an adjustable pushrod and some need shims to be inserted between the booster and cylinder and some manufacturers provide no facility for adjustment...

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.

Did you use the correct booster? Did you change the adjustment on the push rod ?(goes from pedal to booster) If you changed this adjustment or used a different push rod.. it could be your problem.. Two kinds of boosters Vacuum and hydrolic.. I expect that you have a Vacuum style..

Step by step instructions for changing my brake booster


Remove only the two nuts that secure the master-cyl. to the booster NOT THE FLUID LINES and tie the master cylinder carefully out of the way.Then remove the four nuts under the dash that secure the booster to the fire wall.Not forgetting the booster push-rod connection to the brake pedal.Remove the clip and the pin and now the booster should be free to come out.There are torque specs. for tightening the nuts when replacing if you have a torque wrench.Refer to Haynes manual from auto shop
Also I think the brake booster push-rod is adjusted at the factory but if it isn't it may need adjusting otherwise you could find youre getting overheating brakes after the installation.

Install new brake boost and naw i have draging brakes


Hi J, There is a small push rod which is attached to the brake pedal and protrudes through the fire wall, making the mechanical connection onto the booster. If the rod adjustment has been tampered with or if the replacement booster clearance is not an exact replacement it results in the brakes binding or if adjust too short, having no brakes at all. The adjustment required is very hit and miss and requires turning less than half a millimeter on each adjustment. It will be far easier and safer to get the correct unit and fit that. Regards John

How to take off brake booster


Basically remove fluid from master cylinder wtih siringe.
Carefully remove brake lines with the proper wrench.
Remove master cylinder.
Once the master is removed you can see the bolts holding the booster on remove them and remove the booster. Installiation is the reverse.
Be careful of the push rod. Do not touch the adjuster nut on it until you have installed the new booster and mastercylinder and feel the need for adjustment of the rod. The only time I would touch it is if after bleeding you feel as if the brakes were dragging or pedal travel was extensive.
I strongly recommed you get a shop manual for this procedure.

How to adjust power brake booster for 2002 volvo s 80


There is no adjustment to the rod between the brake rod and the booster on a S80. If you are having brake light problems the first place to look is in the trunk for a bad fuse in the rear electrical module behind the cover on the left side.
