AE86 Tech #86-17: Brake Check

No it's not like that crap they pull at Formula D. As of late, people seem to be buying brake boosters thinking they are bad. One person I questioned never checked the booster, they just assumed it since the brakes weren't working.

Here's how to check:
Step 1 with engine off, pump the brakes a few times and hold it.

Step 2 with your foot still on the brake, turn on the car. Your foot should move forward slightly, that lets you know that the booster is working.

Here's a video to show you what I mean. And that is not me.

So before you hit the boards searching for the booster, make sure it is the booster that is causing the problem.
