How did brake fluid get inside my brake booster?
And how do I get it out? So, my brake pedal goes all the way to the floor and I get another master cylinder to replace my original. I'm getting ready to put the new master cylinder in and I notice there is brake fluid inside the brake booster, and not just a little bit either. There is a pool of brake fluid up to within a 1/2 inch of the edge of the master cylinder hole. What would cause brake fluid to be inside my booster and how do I fix it?
Almost as important is how do I get the brake fluid out and does it have to be completely dry inside a brake booster or can the walls still be a little oiley?
Thanks for your knowledge as you can see I'm lacking in that department right now,
