      We picked up the part within an hour of ordering online. I had received an email coupon that morning, big perk! It was the correct part and installed in the original location without a problem.
      The only problem we had was the clip that attached the booster to the brake pedal. I don't think there is a fool proof way to take that clip off without damaging it. It would be a plus if the booster came with that clip.

        It's a brake booster that boosts your braking power. So it does its job. Not fancy chrome bling bling, but I don't want that. I want a booster that boosts braking power. If it didn't, then it would not be a brake booster. So boost away brake booster. You're awesome!

            The first break booster I got did not work. Mechanic called me to tell me it did not work. Had to get a ride from a friend go to mechanic get the Booster bring back to advance auto and get a second one. Bring back to my mechanic and try again. The second one worked fine but my cost at my mechanic was much higher because the first one did not work.

            The first one of these I picked up was defective. Did not know it was defective until it was installed. Had to order a replacement, took an extra day to arrive. I had to pay to have this installed twice. Now waiting on the warranty claim to be processed to cover the second install. The warranty claim for labor is not a very positive experience. Second unit works great. This not an easy install on 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee the Master Cylinder must be removed.

                The instructions that came with the unit were generic. The unit might apply to many vehicles but it would have made life so much easier if I could have had vehicle-specific installation steps. I'm sure removal and installation would have been so much easier with a little more vehicle-specific information. Also, the old gasket had to be used since a new one [...] nor the need mentioned until 3/4 through the installation steps.

                    Happy to help you with your question D! There could be various reasons why your brakes may be dragging. With any brake service it is suggested to properly bleed your brake system, it is a possibility that you have a seizing caliper. For more help I suggest referring to your repair manual or a certified mechanic.

                    Hi Ray, glad to assist you! Instructions for removing the brake booster: Park your car in a safe place with enough room to work around the front and driver side of the vehicle. Locate the booster push rod connected to the brake pedal. Remove the cotter pin securing the booster push rod pin to the brake pedal using a pair of nose pliers. Release the push rod pin from the brake pedal and slide the push rod off the brake pedal. Unscrew the four mounting nuts off the brake booster studs using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. You should be able to see the four booster studs extending through the firewall, in front of the brake pedal. Disconnect the vacuum hose from the brake booster, working from the engine compartment. Use a pair of slip joint pliers. Remove the two nuts holding the brake master cylinder to the brake booster. Use a wrench or ratchet and socket. Separate the brake master cylinder from the booster just enough to make room for booster removal. Pull the brake booster off the firewall and remove it from the vehicle.

                    A:

                    The primary symptom of power brake booster failure is a high, hard pedal that requires greater than normal pedal pressure to stop the car. You may also notice that it takes a much longer distance than normal to stop your car. The high, hard pedal and longer stopping distance mean you are not getting power boost. To test your brake booster, pump the brakes several times with the engine off to deplete stored vacuum. Turn on the engine while pressing lightly on the brake pedal. You should feel the pedal fall away a bit and then become firm, but not hard. If you feel nothing at the pedal when the engine starts, your brake booster is not functioning. Booster problems may indicate failure of the booster unit itself or problems in the vacuum system that powers the booster. To test for vacuum problems, start the engine and run it to medium speed, then turn off ignition and take your foot off the gas. Wait about a minute and a half and then apply your brakes. You should feel the vacuum boost on at least two brake applications. If you do not, you may have a vacuum system leak or bad vacuum check valve.

                    The brake booster uses vacuum from the engine to multiply the force that your foot applies to the master cylinder.
