    Default Brake Booster Leak

    Hi All,

    I just found an oil leak (power steering oil). Looks like it is coming from between the hydraulic brake booster and the master cylinder.

    Can anyone tell me if the booster is servicable? Can it be sucessfully rebuilt or should I just same the time and buy a reman unit.

    Any thought or ideas will be most apreciated.

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Reman unit, those "O" rings arent an over the counter part.
    I tried repairing mine a few years ago with some "O" rings that seemed to be a perfect match, all it got me was an even worse leak a month later.

    Plus with a reman unit you can usually get a warranty alot of the time that is a lifetime affair that will save you money if it fails again down the road.
