Hey Guys - Hope everyone is doin alright. I have a little brake problemo here.
Recently I started hearing some rubber grinding noise, kind of like the noise you hear when you rib 2 gloves together. This is the exact sound:
Also the brake felt a little lighter. I started checking around the paddle area and I see this.
See the black rubber cover is shiny, it is covered with oil. Also I checked why the metal surroundings feel like oily and then I found this:
this is the end of steering shaft. the rubber boot you see is filled with oil. I think it happened because the oil leaked from brake above traveled through the metal bar near the 2nd bold and dripped into the rubber driving shaft's boot. See below:
well, whats going on here? booster going bad or gone bad to be more specific?
car is '08 with 65xxx clicks and about 4 years old. Is this normal for a 4 year old car? need some pro opinions before I listen to dealership comments. Thanks guys!
Sorry about taking much of your screen for my post, just wanted make explain things clearly.
