Brake Boosters

Ford Falcon brake booster replacements

From boosters to servos and vacuum servos, you may know these parts called various names, but these devices all play the same role in enabling you to stop your Ford safely. This component sits between the master cylinder of your braking system and the pedal, and controls how much force you need to put on the pedal to be able to stop. It means that you don't need to apply extreme force to be able to stop safely, with just measured foot pressure enough to stop in time under most circumstances.

While a Ford brake booster is not required to stop your vehicle, it means you are going to have to apply much more force. This also impacts your stopping distance and means you might not be able to react quickly enough to prevent an accident.

Assess your Ford Transit, Falcon AU or Territory brake booster

If you’re experiencing issues with this area of your vehicle, you’ll notice that stopping is harder to do. You’ll need to apply more and more pressure on the pedal to come to a halt, ultimately resulting in a need for a replacement.

There is a simple test you can apply to see if the vacuum component of your brake booster has failed. With the engine turned off, pump the brake several times. Then, depress the pedal lightly while turning the car on. If the pedal gives a little bit and then becomes firm, it is working as it should. If it goes completely hard with no resistance or there is no change at all, that means the booster has failed.

This aspect of your system is ultra-important for your safety as well as your passengers’ and others on the road. They should be regularly inspected and we advise that you only trust genuine replacement parts.
