How do I know I need a Brake Drum Replacement?
Brake vacuum pumps are designed to provide the vacuum force needed to operate a vacuum brake booster. Brake Vacuum Pumps can be mechanically driven, via a belt or electrically powered.
When the brake vacuum pump fails, you will typically experience either a pedal which is very stiff or your pedal intermittently change from operating normally, to become stiff.
When these fail or begin to fail you will typically have:
- Increased pedal stiffness
- Increased braking distance
- Noise from vacuum pump
- Frozen pulley on vacuum pump
