Nissan Maxima. INSTALLATION

CAUTION:

  • Because the vacuum hose contains a check valve, the vacuum hose must be installed in the correct position for proper operation. Refer to the stamp on the end of the vacuum hose to confirm correct installation. The brake booster will not operate normally if the vacuum hose with the check valve is installed in the wrong direction.
  • Insert the vacuum pipe into the vacuum hose at least 24 mm (0.94 in) as shown.
  • Do not use lubricating oil during installation.
