New update, added the white teflon piston o-rings

Hi forum members,

For the e28,e24,e32, cars, booster repair DIY.

I located a supplier for the internal white teflon (2) piston rings. I should have them in about 15 days.

I also found a supplier for the internal shaft seal at a lower price, 9.5mm I.D. This will take about 8 weeks to manufacture.

Then I will have all of the interior replacement parts, a complete repair kit, for the brake servo/booster.

Here is the photo link to the DIY re-build.

https://picasaweb.google.com/1135658...nZ_Z7f6JrUyQE#

Read the captions at the bottom of each photo.

I also added a new helpfull hint for the re-build.
Where the grub screw, screws into the booster cylinder there can be a burr created by the grub screw, on the interior. This burr can cut the 38mm O-ring, and also damage the 2 white high pressure teflon piston rings.
Thanks to (tn).

When I receive these new parts, I will revise the price.

Hydraulic brake servo booster, 10 piece repair kit, and Rebuild Service

Hi Forum Members,

For the following BMW cars
e28,533,535,m535,m5, part # 34331156925
e24,633,635,m635,m6,L6, part # 34331156925
e32,735 only. part # 34331156925

This Do It Yourself (DIY) is to re-build the Brake Servo Booster, all of the 10 piece interior repair kit are identical, for both part numbers

I recently rebuilt another hydraulic brake servo booster, and I was amazed at how the rubber o-rings were deformed and hardened. They are now an oblong shape. The large o-ring 38.0mm x 3.0mm, at the front of the booster. It now measures 2.55mm high instead of 3mm. And is 3.28mm thick, were it should be again be 3.0mm. And it is noticeably more brittle. The smallest o-ring was brittle and it broke when removed.

Special note! Please read! Some BAD boosters are being sold.

Hello e28 owners,

Parts Geek and its supplier A-1 Cardone, are selling bad rebuilt hydraulic brake boosters.

I had a client of mine who sent me a leaking booster. When I opened it up to repair, I noticed that it had an incorrect shaft seal installed.

On top of that, the shaft seal was installed up-side down, and missing the garter spring.

My client told me that his first Cardone from Parts Geek leaked as soon as it was installed, he sent it back to Parts Geek and they sent him another.

When he installed the second one, it also leaked.
And thats when he called me, and I used my rebuild service and sent him one of my rebuilt spares.

When I received his core back, I set to rebuild it for the next client.
I was shocked, the shaft seal was upside down, I then pressed the shaft seal out of the black plastic cup. The shaft seal specs are 9.5mm i.d. x 22.0mm o.d. and thickness of 6mm.
The A-1 Cardone is 10.0mm i.d., way too big. It is made in China by YEI Shien, part #A19168 10x22x6.
Because it was in backwards the garter spring came off, or was never there in the first place.
I am going to also attach some photos, of the suspect seal front and back, and what a garter spring looks like.

Here is my link, booster repair kit and rebuild service.
