Your car has one master cylinder & 2 vacuum boosters. You can’t replace the vac units & rebuild the boosters, it’s one or the other. Again, I suspect you have had the misfortune of a unknowledgeable repair.

That said, you could also just have something wrong with the vacuum supply.

Can you take a picture of the engine bay and post it? I’ll keep an eye out for it and OK it for posting.

> Mechanic acknowledges that (although he thinks it’s safe enough since the car will eventually stop).  He says the problem was getting parts for the vac and boosters.  He claims he got aftermarket from the UK since OEM wasn’t available, etc., etc.  Something about OEM rebuild kits not being available?  Whatever.
