2.27. Check of wear of brakes


Lift the car and remove wheels.


1. Blocks can be checked through a window in a support (it is specified by an arrow).
2. Measure thickness (And) frictional slips and if thickness less specified in subsection 2.1, replace blocks.
4. If there are any doubts of rather normal state of slips, blocks should be removed.
5. At the same time check a disk condition. Measure thickness of a disk and check a surface condition. If the thickness is less than norm, a disk replace. Insignificant defects of a surface are removed polishing, strongly worn-out disk replace.
6. Check podtekany liquids from a hose in the specified place (shooter) and tubes of a hydraulic actuator of brakes. Check reliability of an inhaling of connections. All found defects immediately eliminate.


1. Remove drums (see subsection 8.6).
2. Check thickness of frictional slips. If their thickness (or distance to heads of rivets) is less than 1,6 mm, or there are traces of a zamaslivaniye or serious damages, blocks replace.
3. Check a condition of springs and a gap regulator between blocks and drums.
4. Check podtekany liquids from the wheel cylinder, having unbent a dustproof cover. At leak detection the cylinder replace.
5. Check a condition of drums. Minor defects polish a skin, if necessary drums pierce.
6. Establish all removed details and lower the car. Wheel nuts tighten with the set moment.


1. On the idle engine press several times a brake pedal, the course of a pedal of a brake thus should not change.
2. Press a pedal and start the engine, all the time. After engine start-up the pedal should be displaced a little forward.
3. Press a pedal of a brake and stop the engine. Within about 30 seconds, the pedal should keep the situation.
4. Again start the engine, later 1 mines stop and press several times a pedal. The pedal course with each pressing should decrease.
5. If operation of the vacuum amplifier differs from described above, the vacuum amplifier in this case is subject to replacement (see subsection 8.13).


1. Transfer the transmission lever to neutral situation. Having made moderate effort the lever of the hand brake, count up number of clicks of a full speed of the lever. If the number of clicks does not correspond to norm, the hand brake should be adjusted.
2. Check operation of the hand brake, having established the car on an abrupt slope. The order of adjustment is described in подразделe 8.11.
