Check of brake system

(each 12 000 km [7500 miles] of run or time in 6 months)

Remember that the dust developed when functioning brake mechanisms may contain extremely unhealthy the person asbestos. Do not blow off dust compressed air at all and do not inhale it, at service of mechanisms put on a protective mask or a respirator. Do not use for rubbing of components of brake system gasoline or solvents on an oil basis at all - apply only firm cleaners or methyl alcohol!

Detailed illustrative material on brake mechanisms is more white is given in the Head Brake system.

The condition of components of brake system, besides the regular, stipulated schedule of routine maintenance, checks, has to be estimated every time at removal of wheels or at emergence of signs of violation of functioning of brake system.

The listed below symptoms can be a sign of malfunction of components of brake mechanisms:

a) When braking the car loses course stability (there is a withdrawal in one of the parties);
b) During braking brake mechanisms publish squeal or a scratch;
c) Excessively the course of a pedal of a foot brake increases;
d) When squeezing a brake pedal pulsations are felt;
e) Traces of leak of brake fluid take place (usually on an internal surface of disks of wheels and tires).

Weaken nuts of fastening of wheels. The car also establish to Poddomkratta it on props. Remove wheels.

Disk brake mechanisms


1. The support of each of brake mechanisms is equipped with two blocks (internal and external). End faces of blocks are well looked through through a special observation port in the support case after removal of a wheel.

2. The assessment of residual thickness of a frictional overlay of an internal block is made visually through an observation port of a support. It is easy to approach an external block from the inside of a support. If slips are worn-out over an admissible limit (see Specifications), it is necessary to make complex replacement of brake shoes. Remark: Remember that frictional overlays of a priklepana or are pasted to a metal substrate which thickness should not be considered at measurement.

3. If visually to estimate the residual thickness of blocks it appears difficult, or there is a need for more detailed survey of blocks, remove a support(s) and take blocks for more detailed studying (see the Head Brake system).

4. After blocks are taken from a support, clear them by means of special means and check the residual thickness of slips by means of a ruler or a caliper with a vernier scale.

5. Measure by a micrometer thickness of brake disks. Compare results of measurements to standard requirements (see Specifications). If thickness any of disks leaves abroad admissible range, replace it (see the Head Brake system). If disk thickness in norm, check its general state. Pay attention to such defects as deep scratches, furrows, teases, overheat traces, etc., in case of need remove a disk and send him to a pro-point (see the Head Brake system).
6. Before establishing to the place of a wheel, examine all brake lines on existence of signs of damages, wear, destruction as a result of aging of material, traces of leaks, bends, twisting and other deformations (in particular near points of connection of flexible brake hoses to supports of brake mechanisms. Check reliability of fastening of hoses collars. Make sure that any of brake hoses the suspension bracket (do not adjoin to acute angles of the components of a body, system of production of the fulfilled gases located in the neighbourhood also at any provisions of a steering wheel). In case of need make the corresponding repair or correct a route of laying of lines. Replace defective components (see the Head Brake system).

Drum brake mechanisms


1. When checking back drum brake mechanisms make sure that the parking brake is released, then tap a drum outside a hammer with soft brisk for the purpose of weakening of landing.
2. Remove brake drums.
3. Make careful cleaning of brake mechanisms with application of the special cleaning structure.

Do not blow off brake dust from a surface of components compressed air at all and do not inhale it - dust may contain asbestos, harmful to your health!

4. Estimate the residual thickness of frictional overlays of brake boots (forward and back). Thickness of a slip is measured from an external surface and to a metal substrate (glued slips), or to heads of rivets (riveted slips). In the first case limit admissible value makes 3 mm, in the second - 1.6 mm. In case of need make complex replacement of boots. Boots are subject to replacement also in case of identification of cracks, zapolirovanny to gloss of sites of slips, or traces of hit of brake fluid.

5. Make sure of correctness of connection and serviceability of a condition of all springs of assembly of the brake mechanism.

6. Check assembly components for existence of traces of leak of brake fluid. Having carefully hooked a finger or a small screw-driver, remove rubber boots from the wheel cylinder in the top part of boots. Identification of any signs of leaks in these parts demands carrying out immediate recovery repair of assembly of the cylinder (see the Head Brake system). Also check all brake hoses and their nipple connections for existence of traces of leaks.

7. Carefully wipe internal surfaces of a drum the pure rags impregnated with methyl alcohol. Try not to inhale the brake dust containing asbestos.
8. Examine a working surface of a drum on existence of cracks, zadir, traces of an overheat and other damages. If defects cannot be removed by processing of a surface with a fine-grained emery paper, the drum should be given for a pro-point to a workshop of car service.
9. Repeat procedure for components of the opposite brake mechanism. Install into place reels, fix wheels and lower the car on the earth.

Vacuum amplifier


1. Check of serviceability of functioning of the vacuum amplifier of brakes is made from a driver's place.
2. At completely squeezed out pedal of a foot brake start the engine, - the pedal has to fail a little more.
3. At the working engine several times squeeze out a pedal of a foot brake. The size of the course of a pedal has to remain a constant.
4. Squeeze out a pedal, kill the engine and continue to hold a pedal pressed within about 30 more seconds during which it should not neither fail below, nor rise.
5. Again start the engine, let's it work for about a minute, then again muffle. Again several times firmly squeeze out a pedal, - the size of the course has to be reduced with each muscleman.
6. In case of negative result of the described check the servo-driver of the vacuum amplifier of brakes is subject to replacement (see the Head Brake system).

Parking brake

The control of the parking brake is made by means of the lever installed between forward seats. Having pulled the lever, cock it against the stop, having counted thus number of clicks of the ratchet mechanism. If the number of clicks leaves limits of admissible range (see Specifications), the drive of the parking brake is subject to adjustment (see the Head Brake system).

Alternatively check of serviceability of functioning of the parking brake can be made in the way of a parking of the car on the site of the road and fixing going under a bias its not movably parking brake at the neutral provision of a transmission. If the brake does not hold the car when raising its lever on the demanded number of clicks, it is necessary to make adjustment (see the Head Brake system).
