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.

Where is the best place to ground the wire in a 2002 Buick Century

any wire in particular? Any ground wires must be fixed to a clean, unpainted part of the bodywork. Using a bolt or screw into the bodywork is best. Be careful with anything mounted to the engine and that is mounted on rubber blocks, and is only earthed by other earthed items.

I think the air conditioning went in my parents 2002 buick century. it blows warm air. can this be fixed?

yes it can be fixed..most likely it just low on charge..low charge will cause the a/c system to shut down since a low charge can cause damage to the system...just bring it to a qualified repair shop an have it charged an add leak dye...the dye will allow a tech to see if the a/c system has a leak in it

Y mom has a 1996 buick century and she keeps taking it for freeon. The air blows cold for a while the it doesn't . Is there a leak or is the garage missing something. Thanks

it definitely sounds like a freon leak in the system, once a garage checks out the a/c system, they normally put in a dye in the system, and this will show where the leak is, and after the leak is fixed , they will refill the a/c with the proper amount of freon, "you are wasting your money and freon, if they don't fix the leak 1st, before adding freon, hope that this information has helped you.

2002 Buick Century, when stopped car idle really speeds up. Have had this looked at and they can't seem to fix the problem. The last mechanic said there must be a leak somewhere. Any suggestions?

It could be a computer control problem, or maybe a vacuum leak. If there are no vacuum leaks you may want to try cleaning the throttle body and maybe replacing the idle control motor.
