Left Brake Booster Vac Unplugged While Degreasing...


Recommended Posts

I'm in the middle of an engine swap and while I'm at it, I figured I'd touch up the bay a bit. That said, I left the brake booster vac line open while doing it... is that going to cause problems? Do I need to take the thing apart and make sure it doesn't have water/degreaser in it now? Just want to make sure I'm on the up-and-up here.

So did you clean up your engine compartment with a degreaser then spray with a hose while the booster vacuum hose was detached? You be the judge of how much water might have seeped in, but it seems to me that any collection in the bottom of the can (more than just vapors) will probably lead to premature rust and eventual failure of the booster.
