Hi guys I've done my brake booster and lost my vacuum in the brakes and sucks to push it in. What's involved in changing the brake booster? Any help muchly appreciated.

Cheers Ben

THIS is for EF/L, but I imagine it would be the same for the XH.

Yes - same as EF/EL.
Beware - they are made of plastic, so DON'T over tighten the bolts, or it will fail again.
If your careful you can replace the booster without disconnecting the lines from the master cylinder.
Good luck.

Recheck the brake light switch isn't loose. They are a really touchy P.O.S. If still no joy, you will need to replace it.
