possible brake vacuum pump problem

Recommended Posts

hello all


about six months ago my brakes bacame hard to press whilst driving... later was told this was due to my vacuum pump... i paid £200 for this to be fixed (think he used second hand part).... all was good until the other day my brakes again are playing up... What is happening is this.... I drive the car and apply the brakes.. at first they work, but i can feel the pedal pushing back up... and this becomes hard to press.. I mean I really need to push hard to get any braking at all..


My car is a 2004 318Ci coupe...


my questions are:


1) Is this the vacuum pump that has gone again? if not what is it?

2) How much does it cost to get this fixed, last guy charged me £200... is that about the right cost?

3) Ive seen you can get a repair kit for these... as they say it is the seals that have gone.. Are these any good and work??


Thanks guys
