Installed the new brake booster pipe today (life took over on the weekend). As I was doing some errands before installing the pipe I had to do a panic stop when a farm tractor pulled out of field in front of me. I had to hit and hold the brake pretty hard and as I did heard a pop. The brake pedal got really stiff and braking effort was greatly increased. Now when I step on the pedal I hear air moving behind the dash and brake power is no existent. So I'm guessing the brake booster was on the way out and my panic stop hastened it's death (read similar threads on here with same problem). Sadly I need to take it to the dealer as they are the only ones who can look at it tomorrow. The car is my DD and I need it to get to work on Thursday.
