Hi Guys, its my first post here. My Master Cylinder and booster are bad, so my car won't idle because of the massive vacuum leak.

I cant see the bottom left bolt on the brake booster because the steering shaft is in the way


Does anyone have experience in replacing?

Thanks

Andrew

You might have to unbolt the column at the instrument panel to move it away enough. My 1998 FSM doesn't mention that.

Before I cut the boot to pieces, is there enough left to right play to move it that much?

Not sure, I've never attempted this. Up to you.

I split the boot and got it, should I do a write-up after this?

Sure, it can't hurt.
