    Hydraulic Brake Booster Hose Replacement

    Anybody know a good source for a replacement for this hose? When this thing leaks, it's quick to put a quart of ATF on your driveway.

    I'd suggest pulling those lines off the car and hauling them to a friendly local hydraulic repair shop. They'll crimp a superior grade of hose onto that fitting for a reasonable cost. Granted, it's not 100% original, but it will save you a great deal of money. Losing pressure in that system isn't ideal for braking performance.

    If the booster is leaking, there's a vendor on the board that will rebuild it to better than OEM specifications. They commonly leak a little ATF down the master cylinder when they're on the way out.
    Save the manuals!
