I recently replaced my brake booster. After the installation, I am unable to set the speed on my cruise control. I am able to activate the cruise control but not set the speed.

How to replace brake booster on 2005 Pontiac aztek


Step 1 - Locate the Brake Booster The brake booster is located adjacent to the master cylinder. There will be 4 mounting screws protruding through the booster. The booster is also attached to the brake pedal in the interior of the car. This is where you will start work in replacing the brake booster.
Step 2 - Remove the Brake Booster Start by locating the booster rod that goes through the firewall and is attached to the brake pedal on the interior of the car. Typically, there is a cotter pin that secures the rod to the pedal, but there may also be nuts. When removing any fasteners in the course of this job, make sure to retain the nuts, cotter pins, and various other fasteners as the new brake booster will not come with replacement fasteners.
Remove the fasteners, whether it is a cotter pin or nuts. Slide the rod off the brake pedal. Disconnect the vacuum brake line that connects to the booster. In the engine compartment, there are four bolts securing the booster to the master cylinder and firewall. Loosen and remove these nuts. Remove the nuts (there are usually 2 in addition to the 4 that have already been removed) that secure the brake booster to the master cylinder. Wiggle the brake booster away from the master cylinder. There is a seal between the two. You will need to keep this as the new part does not generally come with another one. Remove the brake booster.
Step 3 - Install the New Brake Booster Set the new brake booster on the four mounting screws. Tighten the nuts on the bolts to the master cylinder. Insert the push rod through the firewall. Start these by hand so that the threads are not ruined. Reattach the vacuum hose, then the nuts to the 4 mounting screws. Reattach the push rod to the brake pedal by whatever means it was originally secured with, whether by cotter pin or by bolts.
Step 4 - Bleed the Brakes You will need to bleed the brakes after replacing the brake booster

Vacuum brake booster toyota sequoia 1984. Brake Dealer completed diagnostic test showing codes C1223,1247,and 1310. Conclusion the booster needs replacement. Must I? (about $1,000). Safety issue???


Toyota Sequoia's had a lot of problems abs wise> #1 clear codes with a factory software scanner. then drive it to see what returns. I can not see a brake booster setting 3 codes that are ABS/VSC problems #2 how does the brake pedal feel If it is high and hard pedal then the booster is bad if the engine speeds rise as pedal is depress and you hear escaping air the booster is bad. #3 ABS/VSC are supplemental systems to the normal braking soit will take longer to stop and a possible skid could occur. but you will stop leave more traveling space you should be fine.

Possibly but I would suspect a vacuum leak in the brake booster diaphragm that is up setting the air/ fuel ratio causing the problem. Have a mechanic disconnect the vacuum hose and block it off then start the car and apply the brakes . If the rpms remain normal then replace the booster.

Master cylinder must be bench bled before it is installed or it will not build pressure possible you have a bad booster try bleeding the master cylinder first

1999 Lincoln Continental. The cruise will turn on but will not set. Recently had Sears replace the brake booster, is there any cruise components that have to be removed or disconnected to complete this...


The cruise control mechanism is in the area of the booster, so it is possible they had to remove it to get to the booster. It may just be unplugged.

New golf tdi went 12 miles smells burning wheels not hot does not smell under bonnett any ideas


  1. A stuck brake caliper piston causing the brake pads to ride on the rotors while car is in motion.
  2. Improper hand brake adjustment will cause the rear caliper to hook up even if the lever is all the way down.
  3. Manual transmission operates with a semi-metallic clutch disc similar to brake pads can produce similar odor when you ride on your clutch pedal.
  4. You could also be riding on your brake pedal while you operate your vehicle.
  5. Last but not least, you might have run over plastic debris and stuck on your exhaust pipe melting in the process.
This are common sources of burning rubber which people mistaken think their tires are burning. The only way you can burn your tires is if you do wheel spins, high speed braking and locking up your wheels and setting it on fire.

go to the master cylinder and remove it from the booster, disconnect the vacuum line from the booster, then disconnect the brake plunger from your brake pedal inside the vehicle, then remove the booster mounting bolts from inside the vehicle then remove the booster, install in reverse order, once you install the master cylinder, you will need to bleed out any air in the brake system, hope this helps, let me know
