997 vacuum hose/braking problem

I have a 2005 997/2. Recently finding very hard to brake so found a split pipe at the rear alternator, so I changed that. But made no difference. Anyone out there had similar experience? Any ideas?

it is common for the pipe that comes from the vacuum pump to have a split.  It’s normal practice to replace this line when the pump is replaced.  I suspect this is your fault.

Thanks. I replaced the one adjacent to the alternator, so the pump must be at the front end. I appreciate your advice. 
Thanks again.
