2.43.8. Brake system


Too big course of a pedal of a brake:

  – wrong adjustment of a pedal;
  – back brake shoes stand too far from a drum.

Low efficiency of braking:

  – brake shoes, brake disks or drums are worn-out;
  – on brake disks (drums) brake fluid or oil got;
  – brake shoes do not nestle on brake drums (disks);
  – pollution of drum brakes oil;
  – the wrong type of brake shoes is used;
  – brake mechanisms are incorrectly assembled;
  – the vacuum amplifier of brakes does not work.

When braking the car takes away aside:

  – on brake shoes on the one hand oil got;
  – partially or the working brake cylinder is completely jammed;
  – on the different parties brake shoes with different material of friction are used;
  – not coordinated brake disks;
  – uneven wear of tires of the car from the different parties;
  – there is an air at brake system.

Softness of a pedal when braking:

  – new brake shoes were not completely earned extra;
  – bolts of fastening of the main brake cylinder are not clamped;
  – strong wear of brake drums.

By pressing a pedal of a brake against the stop brakes do not work:

  – the leak in hydraulic system interfering transfer of pressure from the main brake cylinder to working brake cylinders;
  – consolidations of pistons of the main brake cylinder are worn-out.

The vacuum amplifier of brakes does not work:

  – the vacuum hose is disconnected or is not tight;
  – the unilateral vacuum valve is faulty or incorrectly connected;
  – internal defect of the amplifier of brakes.
