Default Where is my brake booster at??

I've looked around the forums and the internet but cant get a straight answer here.

All I'd like to know is where my brake booster cable is??? (i'm seafoaming my car so...)

I hear its just the vacuum cable on the driver side near the firewall blah blah blah, still there are lots of cables in that area haha.

It is the unit between the master cylinder and firewall on most cars.

I need to know where the vacuum cable is, that is what side to disconnect and whatnot. A picture would be most appreciated. Your description is still fairly vague, keep in mind i dont know what the booster even is. let alone what it looks like.

It's the big round thing behind the master cylinder, #1 here.

I think the windshield & cowling overhang forward, so you have to look back underneath to see it. Only the reservoir & the end of the master cylinder stick out beyond the cowling.

Your vacuum hose is #6. As far as disconnecting it, what are you planning to do? Seafoam you could disconnect either end, maybe the engine-end is easier to disconnect. But then you'll want to find another hose to put in it's place & put the seafoam in there.

www dot hondaautomotiveparts dot com
click PARTS
put in your car's information

I think the pictures are from Honda's electronic parts catalog, 'cause several on-line dealer parts departments have the same pictures.
