The vacuum brake booster is replaced when it fails. If the vacuum booster is faulty, the force on the brake pedal increases significantly

If the force on the brake pedal has noticeably increased during braking, you need to check the amplifier on a stationary car.

When the engine is not running, we press the brake pedal five or six times on the brake pedal.

Holding the brake pedal in the pressed position, start the engine.

The brake pedal should move forward.

If this does not happen, then the vacuum amplifier or the check valve of the vacuum amplifier does not work, and the vacuum amplifier hose may also not be sealed.

Replacing the vacuum booster valve

Having overcome the resistance of the clamps, we remove the check valve from the sealing sleeve of the vacuum brake booster housing.

To assess the serviceability of the check valve, its tube must be disconnected from the fitting of the engine receiver.

To do this, squeeze the two clamps of the valve tube tip

And disconnect the tube tip from the receiver fitting

Remove the check valve with the tube.

The serviceability of the valve can be assessed by blowing into it (for example, with your mouth) in both directions.

The air should pass in the direction from the amplifier to the receiver, but not in the opposite direction.

The faulty valve is being replaced.

Carefully bending the brake tubes, remove the main brake cylinder from the pins of the vacuum booster and pull it aside.

The connection of the main brake cylinder with the vacuum brake booster is sealed with a rubber ring.
