Do these thing wear out? I've noticed my servo giving less assisstance lately and am going to check the pipes tomorrow but was just curious incase the pipes are fine. I was thinking also that they're a sealed unit maybe and non servicable. Any pointers are welcome, cheers.:)

These vacuum pumps are called exhausters on a diesel. ;)

Manifold vacuum
Most diesel engines now have a separate vacuum pump ("exhauster") fitted to provide vacuum at all times, at all engine speeds.

On the side of the exhauster/vacuum pump (lol) is a bit that the pipe from the servo connects to and it seems to be loose and wobbly. I expect that might be the issue. I don't know how it's fitted yet but will try and have a closer look tomorrow.:)

If its a push on connecter then it may appear loose. You could always put some soapy bubbles around it and start it up and see if the bubbles get sucked in. ;)

I'll try that, it's the metal part that the hose clips onto. Might be time for some chemical metal.:)
