Customer: Hi there, I have a 2000 740iL with water in the brake
booster area. After a hard rain, the brakes would be stiff and the engine
ran very rough - sometimes with white exhaust streaming out of the tail pipes. Then after a while the car would run great again. I researched this online and saw that water in the brake booster area was a very common problem, usually caused by leaves and other dirt getting into the brake booster area and then plugging up the drainage hole. Then during a rain, water would find itself into that container but would not drain out. I believe what would happen next, is some water would get sucked up by one of the vacuum hoses causing the brakes to malfunction as well as affecting the engine performance. My name is ***** ***** Coutinho by the way
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I believe the issue is the drainage hole is plugged up and the solution is to clear it out. But my problem is I can't seem to find the drainage hole to begin with and I am not sure how to clean it out if I did.
