break booster

Asked by Aug 04, 2017 at 09:59 PM about the 1991 Buick Park Avenue FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Thinking of buying an 89 park avenue, I was told it needs a new power booster, a tire, and a battery.  Didn't know the degree of difficulty or tools needed.  A family member can do repairs but I'm not sure if it's worth the trouble.  The car has less then 150,000 miles and the interior is good shape.  The exterior doesn't even have a scratch.  To start it needed a jump because it's been sitting for a few months, but so far I think it's great.  Paying $500. for the car plus parts... IDK, does anyone have an opinion?

how to remove and replace?

parts needed?
