Has anyone had this problem:

"202 Tech was able to detect fault #P1181 - Air leak from faulty vacuum brake booster"

This is an area I normally let the specialist deal with, I have had a quick look in the Haynes manual it it does say that the servo unit is not something that can be repaired only replaced. :(

finn :confused:

Hundenmaster, is your car an auto? If yes the booster vacuum pump is infront of the battery, you could check all the pipework to see if any has come undone or is perished.

Yes it is an auto - actually my girlfriend's car. Thanks - I will look into it tonight.
