2.16. Check of brake system


The following signs can testify to malfunction in brake system: the car pulls aside by pressing a brake pedal; the scratch of brakes is audible; excessively free wheeling of a pedal of a brake; pulsation of a pedal of a brake, leakage of brake liquid, etc.

Lobbies and back disk brakes

1. Check thickness of brake slips through an opening in a support (shooter).
2. Check thickness of an external brake slip.
3. For exact check of thickness of brake slips and their condition remove supports of brakes and brake slips. Clear slips (2) and check thickness (3) and a condition of a frictional material (1).
4. Measure thickness of a brake disk by means of a micrometer. Examine a disk surface on existence of deep scratches or flutes.
5. Check all brake tubes and hoses on existence of damages or wear. Check reliability of fastenings and connections.

Back drum-type brakes

1. Turn off two fixing screws in the center of a brake drum and remove a drum.
2. Clear the brake mechanism by means of means for cleaning of brakes.
3. Measure thickness of a frictional material of brake shoes. If material height over heads of rivets less than 1,5 mm or the general thickness of a frictional material it is necessary to replace less than 3 mm, blocks.
4. Check a condition of springs of the mechanism of a brake. Examine the wheel cylinder on existence of traces of leak. Check integrity of covers of the cylinder. Check brake tubes and connections.
5. Examine an internal surface of a brake drum on existence of cracks, deep scratches and wear tracks.
6. Similarly check the brake mechanism on other party of the car.

Check of the vacuum amplifier of brake system

1. Squeeze out a pedal of a brake and start the engine - the pedal should fall a little.
2. At the working engine squeeze out a brake pedal several times – the course of a pedal of a brake should not change.
3. Squeeze out a brake pedal, muffle the engine and hold a pedal in the pressed condition within 30 seconds – the pedal should not fall.
4. Start the engine, let's to it work some minutes and muffle the engine. Squeeze out a brake pedal several times – the course a pedal should decrease with each pressing.
5. If the pedal of a brake behaved differently, the vacuum amplifier means is faulty, and it is necessary to replace it.

Hand brake

1. Count up number of the clicks necessary for reliable statement of the car on the hand brake. Adjust the mechanism of the hand brake if it is necessary.
2. Check, that the hand brake could hold the car on an abrupt slope.
