The addition of a brake booster to the braking system in your Jeep Cherokee XJ makes it easier to stop the SUV. When this booster goes out, that additional power goes away, leaving you with a hard to depress brake pedal and a vehicle that’s difficult to stop. To fix that problem, the defective brake booster must be removed and a replacement installed. This should take about an hour to do.
Things You’ll Need: 3/8-inch ratchet and socket set, Open-end wrench set, Replacement brake booster
- Pop the hood on your Cherokee. Loosen the bolts holding the master cylinder to the brake booster with an open-end wrench but do not remove them from the booster.
