2001 Volvo V70 XC Question: sounds like air when I step on brakes
POSS BRAKE BOOSTER IS LEAKING - globalhelper
THE AIR LEAK TYPE NOISE WHEN STEPPING ON THE BRAKE PEDAL IS DUE TO THE BRAKE BOOSTER HAVING AN INTERNAL DIAPHRAGM VACUME LEAK. CAN BE FELT WHEN STEPING ON THE BRAKE PEDAL OR RELEASING THE BRAKE PEDAL,OR THE AIR LEAK CAN BE CONSTANT. BRAKE BOOSTER NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. - A-FERNA4
Sound like other are right , we do a fair bit of them - Angela at European Specialists
I have a hissing sound and whistle from (a braking) component. Reason, when I step (press) on the brake pedal the noises stop. Any clue as to what this is. It sounds like an air leak.
it happens everytime I get in the car and back out to the main rd but after driving for about 5 mins the sound goes away
