Having problems with your Volkswagen Passat ?
Every now and then the brake pedal is hard to press down,which means i cant stop or slow down very well.i will take it to a garage to sort but i would like some idea of the cause so i don't get ripped off with paying for parts i don't need.
Likely a vacuum leak or a bad master booster. Your power assist works by vacuum boost, if you have a sporatic leak, this could cause an intermittant issue. If no leak is present, you may have a booster issue. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!
