i have a hissing noise coming from the gaiter behind the brake pedal. I have been told that it means replacing the complete brake servo! Is this true! it seems pretty drastic for a worn gaiter,:confused:

If it is constantly hissing it sounds like the inner seal has gone - the gaiter you refer to is only there to prevent the ingress of dirt and does not form part of the seals in the servo - before having the servo replaced it would be prudent to check all vacuum pipe connections goig to the servo.:)
