Brake booster push rod adjustment


Recommended Posts

from what i see on youtube i am supposed to turn the little nut on the end to extend it out (its not long enough). Can someone confirm this is correct. I put vice grips on it and the wrench wont budge it....it could be its frozen up, just nervous to put too much force. I have broken things previously doing that 🙂

It's not supposed to turn easy. They designed it so the threads are intentionally tight. They don't want that thing screwing in over time as you use the brakes.

But it shouldn't be impossible to turn either.

Your tools look right but you can probably use the splines for the Vise-grips.  I think that's why they are there.
