00 1.4 Petrol - hiss when pressing the brake pedal - drew1103
When I push the brake pedal, I get a hissing noise from the passenger footwell. I have looked and there is a rubber / plastic washer, which when I look in the engine bay seems to go to the servo(?). Is this hissing a problem (a part from being very annoying)? If I tap the brake pedal slightly, the hissing goes off (eventually). I also seems to get louder when I change gear.

subject header given a more meaningful title, and to remove the repeated make/model that was displayed as the drop down menus take care of that.

Sounds like your servo is starting to leak.

Cheers SCREWLOOSE, always look forward to you replies. Is it a serious problem (apart from the annoyance of the hissing) and can I fix the problem myself?

Friend of mine had this in a 206, although it was a high pitched sound to start with. Servo leaking as Screwloose said. Whole servo had to be replaced. If it gets bad, I guess the brakes will feel very stiff.

It will steadily get worse until you only have one push of assistance. The air leak could affect the engine too.

Not too bad a job to do yourself. Book time is 40 minutes, so allow a couple of hours.

Change it soon as the leak on use is the diaphragm split and it can tear causing a complete assistance failure and you will need both feet to stop the car. If this happens in an emergency it could double your stopping distance. Regards Peter

had this on the wifes 306 and it was the servo

The servo was non serviceable and the replacement was only available from Peugeot. Cost was circa £70 for the part.

Some pug servos are available aftermarket though so worth a check with someone like gsf.
