Asked by Sep 13, 2014 at 09:41 PM about the 2002 Volvo S40 1.9T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The pedal is very stiff and hard to push so it is very slow stopping. After braking several
times it seems to loosen up and go back to semi-normal. The brake fluid is full and when
I start the car after pumping it and holding it down, it does go down a little. The vacuum
hose seems to be good, but this part in picture was attached by where the hose goes to
the booster. It's clip is broken/cracked so could a bad connection from this be the
problem? Auto zone was no help..what is this part?
