Brake vacuum pump replacement clio 1998

Hi, i am looking at buying a 1998 R reg clio. On the last MOT one of the advisories was the Brake Vacuum slow which i am thinking will need replacing. I have found the part for sale on ebay but i am wondering where this part is on the car and would it be possible to change this ourselve.....or would it have to be done by a garage?
Thank you, any advise is appreciated.

Re: Brake vacuum pump replacement clio 1998

What engine type please.

Diseasals normally have a vacuum pump which isn't major to replace assuming you are handy with spanners.
Petrol burners normally rely on engine vacuum so no pump.

Advisory could also refer to pipes or even brake servo.
Though I'd have thought that would have caused a fail.

Must admit it is not an advisory I've come across before.
Any more details ?

Re: Brake vacuum pump replacement clio 1998

it is a 1.2 petrol. I am just going by the comments on DVLA mot site as still waiting for info from the seller.

Brake vacuum build up slow (3.3.E.6) is copied from the website.

We have had clios in the past and my dad has done all the work on them but never had this come up.
The car is also 6 hours away so if its something quite expensive, i dont think its really worth the drive to buy it, hence me asking here

its 1.2 petrol Biarritz.
I am just going off comments on DVLA MOT website -
[Brake vacuum build up slow (3.3.E.6)]
Still waiting for more details from seller at the moment.

The car is about 6 hours drive for us so dont fancy driving all that way to find out its going to cost me a fortune.

Re: Brake vacuum pump replacement clio 1998

Try as I might, I can't confirm if the 1.2 has a vacuum pump. Anyone ??

Generally, swapping them on a Renault is simple, bolts to end of cam shaft opposite timing end and readily accessible... at least on the 1.5 diesels.

Looking at reasons for the advisory, pump as mentioned, if it has one.
Leaks in vac system... not unknown for a pipe to be disconnected or split.
Sticky brake servo.
Poor engine so vacuum not overly high.... would have thought this would be reflected in poor emissions as well.

I am assuming that the MOT tester felt brakes were spongy and tried exhausting the vacuum to check, then felt the system didn't "pressurise" too well when engine back on.

Personally, with a 6 hour journey to collect, I'd be looking for something nearer home unless there is something special about the car.
But plenty of older Clios on the market.
