SOURCE: how to replace a brake booster in 1995 buick

undo the the vacuum hoses and make sure you make a diagram of where each hose goes. move them out of the way.

undo the four bolts that attach the master cyclinder to the booster. use a wire coat hanger or just wire to support it. you don't want to bend or break the brake lines.

undo the four bolts that hold the booster to the firewall. carefully pull it away from the firewall. you will see a small are there with a clip. remove the clip and unhook the arm.

reverse those instructions to put it back together

However BEFORE you do that. Make sure that none of the vaccuum hoses are leaking.

please take a moment to rate this solution. thanks

SOURCE: I am trying to replace

the brake pedal would not ned to be removed to change this out. when you lay under the steeering column, you would be able to see the coneting is held on with a c clip. once the clip is removed you can then slide the rod of and pull it out throgh the fire wall (of course after master is out of the suure to not turn the rod on booster as many have adjustable lenght rods that if out of adjustment can apply your brakes without physicaly applying the brake pedal...hope this helps

SOURCE: brake booster removal from 1995

You might be able to unbolt the master cylinder from the front of the booster and move it out of the way without taking any of the brake lines off. If not then just remember your gonna have to bleed the brakes after your done. the booster is held on by four nuts that are screwed onto studs that will stick out of the firewall on the INSIDE of the cab. Look high and behind the brake pedal. Once the four nuts are out and the pedal is disconnnected, the booster will pull out from the engine side.

Air hissing noise brake pedal

This is probably a bad brake booster or the fitting going into the booster is bad. Use a water bottle spray while the engine is running and spray the booster. A leak will draw in water and change the engine rpm.

It could be the booster. The booster uses engine vac to "boost" the pressure your foot applies to the master cylinder. If the booster has a leak in the diaphragm it could cause a huge vac leak for the engine. But usually a leak that size wound not be at random times. And you would hear a hissing noise.
It could be something electrical too.

Brake pedal has alot of back pressure and car moves in gear.Have to press real hard to stop.How to check abs pump if has one where or brake booster or master cylinder?Don't know how to trouble shoot or...

The air seeping is a dead giveaway. Your power brakes are now manual brakes, but stiffer. The diaphram in the brake booster has torn and the hissing noise is the engine vacuum escaping (you hear it louder when you depress the pedal right?). Replace the booster and you will be fine. The brake lights probably don't work because you can't push the pedal down far enought to release the switch. Please rate. Thanks.

Need to know how to replace brake booster in 1995 dodge intrepid

The brake booster should located directly behind the brake master cylinder. if it is you need to remove the brake master cylinder, do not remove any brake lines, there will be a vacuum line going into the booster, either from the front or the side, it's easy to spot, it's fairly large compared to other lines on you car. under the dash where the brake pedal is, you will need to remove the brake rod form the pedal tiself, as it will most likel be a solid part of the brake booster itself from the factory, then unbolt the booster from the firewall, 4 mounting bolts usually, all 4 might be in the engine compartment or 2 inside the car, 2 in the engine compartment. Before you start go to Auto Zone and look at a replacement booster, it will help you see what you're going to do when you start on you repair.
