About Brake Servo Units

The brake servo unit, if fitted, is an aid to the hydraulic braking system. With the operation of the servo unit less force is required on the brake pedal.

The servo unit is situated in the braking system and has a connecting rod that runs between the brake pedal, the master cylinder and fluid reservoir and is commonly found in the engine compartment.

The BMW brake servo unit is a bulbous cylinder which contains a central diaphragm. On each side of the diaphragm there are two separate chambers The cylinder has a vacuum feed from the engine manifold this maintains a vacuum in both chambers. When the brake pedal is pressed an influx of external air is sucked into one side of the diaphragm, the air pressure rises as the vacuum is broken which pushes the diaphragm to assist the movement of the master cylinder which forces the hydraulic fluid through the piping to the slave cylinders on the brakes of each wheel. When the footbrake is released the vacuum is restored to the chamber.

Signs that there's a problem with the BMW brake servo unit can be that the pedal becomes heavy and requires increased force to operate the brakes. 

BMW trivia

  • One of the reasons older BMWs keep their value is because it's easy to get spare parts for even the oldest models. That's because BMW has carried on making car parts, even for cars that were built in WWII.
  • The main headquarters for BMW in Munich is designed and shaped to look like car parts. There was a whole new 'four-cylinder' building added on in 1973, and there's definitely the look of an engine about the architecture.
  • The famous German pilot, the Red Baron, called BMW engines the 'greatest in the world' and ‘the best engine in the war’.
  • The BMW company was founded way back in 1916 and originally manufactured engines for planes. High demand for plane engines during WWI was good news for BMW, but they carried on making plane engines right up until 1945.
  • The BMW 3.0CSL was sold in the 70s and had the unusual addition of a spoiler that was kept in the boot. The owner could install it if they wanted to, but BMW couldn't sell the car with the spoiler attached because of road laws!
