Default Brake booster rebuild in Australia?

I've just discovered brake fluid dripping from one of the brake boosters (servos) on my 411

Can anyone recommend a good place to get brake boosters rebuilt in Australia (preferably in Melbourne)?

Oh, and what's the best way to clean brake fluid from the wing bay?

Kevin ,
There is one company that I have used for many years . They only recondition Brake Booster/Servos

Hydroboost
45 Mc Swains Rd
Echuca Vic
03 5480 0886
Contact Terry Morgan
hydroboost@bigpond.com
www.hydroboost.com.au

They provide a good service and are reasonably priced.

The best way to remove brake fluid is to rinse with plenty of water , then maybe wash with soapy water .

The important thing will all cars using conventional brake fluid that are not regularly used ,is to bleed the whole system with new fluid each few years .
