How can you repair a power brake booster. IS it repairable.

I press on the brake pedal, and the brake pedal returns no problem.
With engine running, the brake pedal does not return all the way. And the brakes are still slightly on. I have to pull the pedal back.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

To check the vacuum booster, pump the brake pedal with the engine off until you've bled off all the vacuum from the unit. Then hold the pedal down and start the engine. You should feel the pedal depress slightly as engine vacuum enters the booster and pulls on the diaphragm. No change? Then check the vacuum hose connection and engine vacuum. If okay, the problem is in the booster and the booster needs to be replaced
