brake servo & master cylinder
« on: May 14, 2012, 03:51:32 PM »
could anyone shed some light on how to replace the brake servo on a mk2 1.9td.
i changed the master cylinder but didn't check inside the servo for damage. it turns out the piston was fubar but as i didn't check the master cylinder is now fubar as well.
now i have to change the servo as well as a new master cylinder again.

please someone say they know how to do it as I'm at my wits end this poxy cheap (pah cough cough splutter) galaxy is not looking so cheap anymore

Ahhh the old bargain that wasn't - that sucks :(

Removal is:

Remove the master cylinder
Remove the EGR valve
Disconnect the servo electrical connector (if you have ESP)
Disconnect the vac hose
Detach the actuating rod from the brake pedal - remove the clip and then the rod
Disconnect the supply hose from the clutch master cylinder - remove the clip, disconnect and cap the end
Remove the four retaining bolts holding the servo in place
Detach the brake pedal bracket
Slide the servo out to the right

Hello and  welcome5

Check the vacuum pipe from the servo to the pump especially the connectors on the ends as these usually split or collapsed, the valve could be the problem but not so common.
