I am getting a hiss from my brake petal and from reading the forums it looks like it is my Brake booster my ? is what one is it.There are 2 that were available for my car 1 With vehicle dynamic control and one with out.I have called my local Volvo dealer and gave them my Vin.and it looks like my car came with either and they said they can not tell.This is something i think i can do myself and Volvo is telling me its about $1000+ to have them do it.I can find the booster at local auto parts store but it has to be ordered with out DC its $220 and with it $120.So my question is is there some thing i can see or a way to tell the difference in the 2?The one i have looks like it has 3 places that it is connected. I'm not sure and cant find a clear picture of one online to see the difference in the 2?<br>This is 2 pictures if it helps.<br><A HREF="http://img20.imageshack.us/gal.php?g=breakboosterleftside.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img20.imageshack.us/gal...e.jpg</A><p><i>Modified by N1ne at 1:53 PM 7-23-2009</i><BR><BR>

Re: 2003 S60 AWD Brake Power Booster going? (N1ne)

Dynamic control -- that might mean DSTC? Do you have a DSTC button on your console?

No the only button i have is a W at the shifter.I have not owned this car that long but i am seeing that the person that owned the car before me had the dealer put just about every option on this car even things that did not come standard on the S60 AWD.I believe this is the problem that the Volvo dealer is telling me is the VIN # that i gave them has things that are not on a standard AWD and because of that they are not sure if the car has DSTC.
