Brake booster

Do I have to bleed the brakes when I replace the booster?

Re: Brake booster

No. As long as you have not broke the brake lines lose.

Re: Brake booster

Unbolt the master and pull it forward and then R&R the booster thats the way I have done it in the past.

Re: Brake booster

My brake pedal keeps getting hard to push, and the "brake" light comes on in the dash. It does it intermittently the vacuum pump has good vacuum. I have no problem bleeding the brakes but I wanted to make sure if I needed a 2nd person is all.

Re: Brake booster

So i just replaced the booster and the damn brake light still comes on randomly. When the light comes on the brakes get hard to push. Guess its time for a vacuum pump.....right?

Re: Brake booster

What was the vacuum reading when you say the pump has "good" vacuum? The spec is 18"-21" IIRC.

Re: Brake booster

I am gonna have to run a gauge into the truck and check because the problem is intermittent.
