If you are indeed sure that you need the bootster, (you should hear a pronounced hissing sound from within the truck while depressing the pedal) it is a simple procedure. Remove the circlip or pintle type clip retaining the shaft to the pedal. Grab a flashlight and locat the four mounting nuts for the booster from inside the vehicle while lying on your back. Loosen theses slightly. Remove the master cylinder from the booster without removing any brake lines from the master cylinder. Leave the master hanging carefully in front of the booster. pull it gently towards the front of the master and away from the mounting bolts. Go back inside under the dash and finish removing the booster mounting nuts. Take note if there are any washers anfd don't allow them to fall beneath the floor carpet. Insallation is the reverse of removal. Thank you, Dana

What would I change on my 02 chevy silverado so it


Most of the time it will be your master cylinder not working properly or maybe the brake booster diafram has a slight leak. You will hear a hissing sound from the booster. I would also check all the vacuum hoses. Just looking them over is not enough here. You will have to take them off and inspect both ends for splitting

I converted my 82 jeeps manual brakes over to power now dont have a full pedal why?


You need to use the valve on the frame. If you can't bypass the one on the booster, you'll have to get a booster off an older model.

I need to top up the power stering fluid and need to know what tipe to use 1988 chevy silverado C3500 454 The power steering looks like it is incorperated into the brake booster


power steering is at the front of the engine and runs on the belt. The reservoir cap looks like this:
73b4b95.jpg To top off steering fluid, use standard steering fluid.

The reservoir in front of the brake booster is the brake master cylinder reservoir. To refill, use standard brake fluid. If it the truck is using brake fluid, check for leaks at the back of the master cylinder and at all wheels.

Please let us know if you have more questions.

If your truck one that was involved for recalls and they hasn't been done yes. The boosters can fail and cause a loss of steering as well as braking. Contact your dealer and see if your truck was one that needed these repairs done.

Does a 2009 Chevy Silverado have what are referred to as continuosly powered brakes, in other words, is powered supplied when the ignition is off.


NO the power brakes runs off the brake booster which is under vacuum from the intake manifold. You will till have power brakes till the vacuum in the booster equalizes and then your going to have to just use brute force. The only electrical motor that controls your brakes are in the ABS but that just opens and closes valves to keep the wheels from locking up. Good luck and hope this helps.

Brake lights dont work but the other tail lights do


Check the brake light switch under the dash attached to the brake peadal arm. It is wher the break booster push rod attaches. Sometimes that switch works loose.
