It's the pump. On conventional brakes, the power assist comes from engine vacuum to the brake booster. On these, the pump provides the vacuum. Contact a dealer regarding the Bendix brake extened warranty to see if the part is covered. I had 150K on my 92 and they were still fixing it for free. If they say there is no way, tell them to check. I have to say there were some components not covered, but most were.
Let me know what you find.
