Vacuum System, Checking

Tests and Test Requirements

The following checks will be helpful when performing Fault Finding if there are complaints regarding the brake booster or the so-called "hard brake pedal".

The following components are included in the check:

  • Brake Booster
  • Seal between the master brake cylinder and the brake booster
  • Check valve
  • Vacuum hoses and connectors
  • Vacuum pump (if equipped)

Keep the geographical surrounding in mind when evaluating the measured results. The higher above sea level, the lower the air pressure.

Always observe all test requirements before checking the vacuum system:

  • Check all the vacuum hoses for damage (for example, tears or damaged caused by animals) and make sure they are secure
  • Maintain clean working conditions when working on the vacuum system
  • Clean the engine compartment before starting, if necessary

Special tools and workshop equipment required

  • Brake Servo Tester -VAS6721-

Brake Booster Tester, Connecting

- Remove the vacuum hose from the brake booster.

- Pressing the brake pedal a few times beforehand makes it easier to remove the vacuum hose.

- Connect the Brake Servo Tester -VAS6721- as shown in the following illustrations.

Audi Q3. Brake Booster Tester, Connecting

Audi Q3. Brake Booster Tester, Connecting

- Connect the Brake Servo Tester -VAS6721- hose -A- to the vacuum hose and push the adapter -C- into the brake booster.

Vacuum, Checking

  Note

  • The average earth atmospheric air pressure at sea level (N. N.) is 1013 mbar (14.69 psi) and it decreases dramatically at higher altitudes (approximately 100 mbar (1.4 psi) every 1000 meters higher) Local and time fluctuations will influence the vacuum.
  • Idling the engine has a negative effect on creating a vacuum.

- Check all the vacuum hoses beforehand for damage (for example, tears or damaged caused by animals) and make sure they are secure

- Connect the Brake Servo Tester -VAS6721-, refer to → Chapter "Brake Booster Tester, Connecting".

- Open the shut-off valve -A-.

- Close the shut-off valves -B + C-.

- Start the warm (above 60 ºC (140 ºF) ) engine and press the accelerator pedal one time quickly (engine RPM higher than 2,000).

- Read the measured value displayed.

Normally (see note) the vacuum should be between 600 and 950 mbar (8.7 and 13.7 psi) (depending on the engine installed).

Check the vacuum system for leaks if the measured value is not reached, even though all requirements (see notes).

- Create the vacuum using a Hand Vacuum Pump -VAS6213- for comparison purposes, refer to → Chapter "Vacuum, Creating with Hand Vacuum Pump".

Opening the shut-off valve -B- makes it easier to remove the hose connections and the adapter.

Leak Test

  Note

  • The average earth atmospheric air pressure at sea level (N. N.) is 1013 mbar (14.69 psi) and it decreases dramatically at higher altitudes (approximately 100 mbar (1.4 psi) every 1000 meters higher) Local and time fluctuations will influence the vacuum.
  • Idling the engine has a negative effect on creating a vacuum.

- Check all the vacuum hoses beforehand for damage (for example, tears or damaged caused by animals) and make sure they are secure

- Connect the Brake Servo Tester -VAS6721-, refer to → Chapter "Brake Booster Tester, Connecting".

- Open the shut-off valve -A-.

- Close the shut-off valves -B+C-.

- Start the warm (above 60 ºC (140 ºF) ) engine and press the accelerator pedal one time quickly (engine RPM higher than 2,000).

  • Normally (see note) the vacuum should be between 600 and 950 mbar (8.7 and 13.7 psi) (depending on the engine installed).

Audi Q3. N47-10210

- Open the shut-off valve -C- and evacuate the brake booster.

- Turn off the engine.

- Read the measured value displayed and write it down.

  • The vacuum may drop 400 mbar (5.8 psi) within 12 hours.

If the drop in vacuum is greater, check the....

1 - Brake Booster

or in the

2 - Check valve, vacuum hoses and connections and vacuum pump/intake manifold

for leaks.

The vacuum will drop considerably within a few seconds if there are large leaks.

Audi Q3. N47-10213

Checking the Vacuum near the Brake Booster:

- Close the shut-off valve -A- after creating the vacuum to test the brake booster vacuum.

Audi Q3. N47-10214

Vacuum Test Near the Check Valve, Vacuum Hoses and Connections and Vacuum Pump/Intake Manifold

- Close the shut-off valve -C- after creating the vacuum to check the vacuum system of the Brake Servo Tester -VAS 6721- up to the intake manifold or up to the vacuum pump.

Opening the shut-off valve -B- makes it easier to remove the hose connections and the adapter.

Audi Q3. N47-10210

Vacuum, Creating with Hand Vacuum Pump

In certain situations, the vacuum can be created using a Hand Vacuum Pump -VAS6213- instead of using the engine or a vacuum pump.

- To do this, connect the Hand Vacuum Pump -VAS6213- to the vacuum hose on the connection -B- on the Brake Servo Tester -VAS6721-.

- Open the shut-off valve -B-.

- Create the vacuum using the Hand Vacuum Pump -VAS6213- until a vacuum between 600 and 950 mbar (8.7 and 13.77 psi) on the Brake Servo Tester -VAS6721- is displayed.

- Perform the tests.

Electric Vacuum Pump, Removing and Installing

Removing

- Remove the noise insulation -1-, refer to → Body Exterior; Rep. Gr.66; Noise Insulation; Noise Insulation, Removing and Installing.

Audi Q3. A10-11456

- Disconnect the connector -4-.

- Remove the vacuum line -3- from the electric vacuum pump -1-.

- Press the electric vacuum pump upward out of the bracket rubber buffers -2--arrow-.

Installing

Install in reverse order of removal. Note the following:

  Note

If the electric vacuum pump is being replaced, modify the bracket for the vacuum pump.
