Mk3 brake booster
« on: December 22, 2016, 04:38:25 pm »
Hi, its me the crazy one.
 I have a mk3 i got cheap, fixed a load of usual things. Dip stick tube and rubber breather hoses and snapped off plastic bits. Fitted a new thermostat as it was jammed open.
 Still even with the abuse its an ok car.
 The problem Im having now is I think the booster has a leak. If I pump the pedal at all when driving the pedal goes hard and there is no boosting.
 Anyone got a mk3 booster for nix almost?
 They look like a bitch to fit, are they really as bad as they look?
 Merry Xmas.
The end is nigh, but the end of what is the question?

Hey mate, not sure if you found on already but they are not that bad to replace as long as you've got the room in the engine bay, had to pull mine to rewire the VR6 and apart from 2 bolt and the lock pin going to the pedal they are pretty straight forward.
