Mein Auto: 1994 BMW 740il
1994 740il brake booster

hi all. new to the bmw world and have always admired bmw's. i now have a 94 7 series. when you depress the brakes pedal its gets hard all the way at the bottom and takes a bit to slow. sounds like a brake booster issue. fluids are full pads are ok.
my question is how hard is it to replace and where can i find DIY instructions on how to. I really appreciate it. Im changing jobs and no more company car so i need to do this asap. i thank you in advance.

It's not that hard really, you can download the E32 Bentley manual (type that into google) and it'll show you how. You can pick one up from any wrecker. They're the same on 93-95 530/540, 840Ci, E32 740il's. Anything with a BMW M60 engine will have the brake booster you need.
