Question about 2002 Buick Century
Proper steps in fixing power booster on 2002 buick century
These are not rebuild-able, they must be replaced if they leak.
One that leaks will hiss while the engine is running. The hiss is vacuum leaking, not pressure leaking out.
To possibly check it under the hood, be very suspicious of a leaking vacuum line at or near the booster, not the booster itself. It might be bad, but that is pretty rare.
The last one I changed I thought was defective because it hissed when I applied the brakes, but a new one did the same thing! :-(
If you decide to replace it, you will be unbolting the master cylinder from the unit under the hood, and also unbolting the unit under the dashboard.
Of you are really careful, you might not need to disconnect the master cylinder 's brake lines at all, just gently pull/push it out of the way to change the booster.
Be really careful not to kink the brake lines.
The unit is bolted to the car with usually 2 bolts through the firewall behind the brake pedal.
