Master cylinder

The master cylinder is mounted on power brake unit (the big black round canister) on firewall held down with 2 12mm nuts depending on braking system usually 2 10mm brake lines need to be removed on out it comes. Bench bleed new master cylinder before install . Fill reservoir with brake fluid and slowly push piston about 1 inch back and fore until air is gone ( assuming mater comes with bench bleed kit ) then install and repeat with someone pressing on pedal lock line closed before pedal is released again EG pump pedal ok hold it (open line watch fluid come out close) ok let up pump it up again repeat may be twice per line. the pedal should be firm once done.

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

    How to replace the brake master cilinder

    Remove the lines running to it, and then unbolt it from whatever surface it's mounted to.
    You will need to BENCH BLEED your NEW MASTER CYLINDER.
    This can be done by taking some rubber hose and putting it from the holes for the lines, back into he reservoir on the new master cylinder. Make sure the new master cylinder is full of fluid. Put the master cylinder in a bench vice, and press in the plunger repeatedly with a screwdriver until no more air bubbles come out.

    Then put the new master cylinder back to the mounting surface, and reattach the lines. Bleed the entire brake system.

    Where do you add brake fluid

    Please don't add brake fluid to the engine, you'll ruin it. Brake fluid is added to the Brake Master Cylinder.

    Hood open, viewing your Jeep from the front, (Facing the windshield)
    The Brake Master Cylinder is on the upper right, mounted fairly close under the windshield.
    (If you have Power Brakes it is mounted on a Power Booster. If you do not have power brakes it is mounted directly to the firewall)

    This link below will show you what it looks like,

    This link shows what the brake master cylinder looks like, not installed. You are looking at the back view of it.
    From the mounting flange that has a hole on each side, to the tip of that rod sticking out, is a view you will not see.

    The photo is to illustrate the top cover, and the wire looking device that holds the cover on.

    Viewing the Jeep from the front, the wire device you see is moved to the ->Right.
    A common tool used to move it would be a sturdy flat tip screwdriver.
    It is very stiff to move, but be sure you are trying to move it the correct direction.

    When you go to fill the master cylinder the proper level for the brake fluid is one-eighth inch below the rim edge. (1/8th inch)

    You will see two compartments. You will also see that the master cylinder sits at an angle. It's angled toward the back. The back edge of each compartment's rim edge, is what you use to judge the brake fluid level. (1/8th inch below that edge)
