Stiff brakes

Post by DougS » Tue Feb 05, 2019 10:00 am

2009 S80 T6, Not sure what I could have done but.... I took half the top of the motor apart to reach the bank1 O2 sensor, replaced it, put it all back together now the brakes are real stiff and barely stop the car when I stomp on them. I took all the plastic crap off again and checked all the wiring connections and everything looks good, no check engine lights or vehicle messages, anyone got a clue what I could have done to it??? I did unplug the connections to the computer and unhooked the battery while replacing the sensor, not sure if that might have caused the braking issue.

The vacuum pump for power brake booster is at rear of engine at end of intake cam. The pump body has a black hard line stuck into it. Check to see that it is in place.
