You car doesnt have a vacuum booster, it has an internal pump motor.

No leaking just the abs brakes are not working.

He said he needs a plastic piece that is at the end of where the hose from the resevior to the abs pump goes.He recieved a whole abs unit to replace mine but the one he recieved was defective (the plastic piece was cracked)he also broke my plastic piece trying to get it out of my abs unit to replace the defective one.If you would like to make me an offer for your whole abs unit just to make it easy for the guy(i realize they are hard to find and not cheap)I would like to hear it and if you know what i am refering to as far as the plastic piece that would be cool also.
Thanks

Your mechanic is breaking stuff taking it out? Gaahhh.....

ABS is horrendously expensive to get back to OEM, at least in our era of cars.

If I were you I'd get a different mechanic and convert to a regular vacuum brake system....
