My daughter's 2004 Turbo Beetle has to warm up before her brakes work. Her check engine light is also on. I was told that there is a crack in the vacuum canister and letting it warm up gets the seal needed for the brakes.

has anyone had this problem and if so, where is the vacuum located to find the crack? And what have you done to fix the problem?

Thanks,

I will have to get the paperwork out of her car this evening. The dealer told us could be the catalyic converter and wants to charge $1500 but can't be sure that is the problem with the CEL. I will post codes when I get them.

Thank you,
