Question Asked: 

The pedal goes all the way to the floor and my wife is afraid to drive it. I have been changing my own brake pads and shoes for many years on many vehicles and have never had this before. I am not sure if it is the booster or the master cylinder, or if I screwed up the reinstallation of the calipers. Does anyone know how to check these things. The booster looks like a real pain in the A to get to and I think it may have sprung a vacuum leak or something when I squeezed the caliper piston in to accommodate the new pads. Help Please???

I own a 99 Sebring JXI conv. and my seat belts work sporadically also. I found out that because it is a convertible the seat belts(front only) are controlled by a solenoid located under the center console. These are notorious for failing in this model of car and are quite pricey to fix. I can make mine work most times by moving the position of the seats. Mine has 217K on it and not worth putting a lot of $$$ into so I just deal with it for now. I'm having a time of it right now with my brakes. I replaced front pads and now there is a hissing sound from behind the brake pedal when you step on it and it goes all the way to the floor. I hope it isn't the brake booster 'cause that may end my time with this car. Good Luck!
