Does it have one to begin with? If it does, it's as simple as replacing the part. Unbolt and replace. There is a rod behind it that must be in place when installing. If not, there should be instructions with the new one you buy! Remove Master cyul. Do not spill fluid anywhere as it eats paint... Have to get the proper rod length and install it behind the booster. Hook up a vacuum line from the manifold intake to the booster with a one way check valve pointing towards the booster. Rod can be adjusted by pedal feel, but there are specs which I do not have on me! Mount master cyl. back onto booster and that should be it! Make sure there is room for the hood to close.....

Replace brake booster

  • Slide the tube nut wrench over the brake line to the master cylinder connection. The master cylinder is normally on the driver's side of the engine bay and mounted on the firewall. Orient the wrench so that it fits over the tube nut on the end of the brake line.
  • 2Disconnect the brake line. Turn the nut counterclockwise to remove. Note the location of each brake line. There are four lines total, and they need to be put back in the same location when reinstalling the lines. You may want to mark them with masking tape and permanent marker.

  • 3Unplug the master cylinder cap electrical plug.
  • 4Remove the brake master cylinder to brake booster bolts with a socket wrench.
  • 5Back the master cylinder off the brake booster.
  • 6Unbolt the bolts holding the brake booster to the firewall on your vehicle.
  • 7Pull the cotter pin out of the brake pedal to brake booster connecting pin with a pair of pliers. This is done inside the vehicle down in the driver side foot well.
  • 8Pull the brake pedal to brake booster connecting pin out to disconnect the brake pedal from the brake booster connecting arm.
  • 9Mark and remove the vacuum hoses on the brake booster and slide the booster off the firewall.
  • 10Install the new brake booster. Installation is the reverse of removal

    I need instrustion to install a brake switch

    It is a generic Nissan brake light switch replacement procedure... the brake light switch on a Nissan Altima i.e. controls the illumination of the brake lights. Without the switch, the lights would not go on. The switch has no service life, so when it goes, it usually happens suddenly. New brake light switches can be obtained from Nissan or from a Nissan dealership.

    1. Remove the cotter pin from the pin bolt that holds the brake pedal to the brake booster with a pair of pliers. There is a small cotter pin running through the brake pedal to brake booster connection. You need to pull this cotter pin out to remove the larger pin that holds the brake pedal to the brake booster.
    2. Slide the pin out of the brake booster mounting bracket.
    3. Pull up on the brake pedal to slide it out of the brake booster mounting bracket.
    4. Remove the bolts holding the brake switch to the firewall using a socket wrench.
    5. Remove the electrical connector on the brake switch by pulling it straight off the switch.
    6. Slide the switch off the firewall.
    7. Install the new switch. Installation is the reverse of removal. Make sure that you replace the cotter pin in the brake booster to brake pedal connection. The cotter pin prevents the retaining pin in the brake booster mounting bracket from coming off.

    Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

    Need to replace brake power booster on 1992 buick limited with AB

    Heres a way to save you a lot of time. remove the two bolts that hold the master cylinder to booster, leave all brake lines connected, pull master away as far as it will go, you may have to pull on the line some, next go inside and remove the pin to remove the rod from brake pedal, you can let brake switch stay, back to booster, remove vacuum line from booster, back inside the car remove the 4 nuts that hold the booster to firewall, make sure rood is clear, go out and pull booster out and remove, install new booster make sure rod hooks to pedal before bolting it up, because sometimes the rod may go in the wrong direction, reverse directions to install, when your done theres no need to bleed brake system. hope this helps.
