Replacement of a brake liquid, prorolling of brake system

The general data

    The brake liquid has property to absorb a moisture owing to what since a point of its boiling decreases that at considerable loading on brakes can lead to formation of steam bubbles in brake lines and lower efficiency of action of brakes. It is necessary to replace a brake liquid whenever possible in the spring. At car operation in mountain district, on the roads processed by salt, and also in the conditions of sea air containing salt to replace a brake liquid follows a thicket, than it is stipulated in the routine maintenance schedule (see Has undressed the routine maintenance Schedule). For replacement of a brake liquid the help of the assistant is required, however on HUNDRED this procedure is usually carried out by means of the special device. At prorolling of brake system the car should be parked on an equal horizontal platform.

The brake liquid is hazardous to health. Do not suck away her mouth through a hose. Store a brake liquid only in capacity to which casual access of children is excluded.

Replacement of a brake liquid and prorolling of brake system and coupling


    Disconnect a negative wire from the storage battery. Uncover the tank of a brake liquid (illustrations Components of a compartment of 4-cylinder engines, subject to regular service, Components of a compartment of the petrol engine V6, subject to regular service and Components of a compartment of the diesel engine, subject to regular service in the beginning of the Head see). Note a felt-tip pen on a wall of the tank level of a brake liquid that then not to change it. Pump out from the tank a brake liquid, having left at its bottom a layer of a liquid in the thickness about 10 mm.

Do not delete from the tank all liquid, differently air will get to brake system.

    Fill the tank with a new brake liquid to a label "MOVE". Carefully clear and remove protective caps of unions of prorolling.
    Put on one end of a pure transparent hose the union of prorolling of a support of the brake mechanism of a forward left wheel, and other end insert into a vessel for gathering of a brake liquid. In capacity it is necessary to pour a little a brake liquid and constantly to watch that the hose end has been shipped in it. Also the capacity should be lifted, at least, on 30 sm over the prorolling union to provide pressure and to interfere with air receipt to it.
    Ask the assistant to 3-5 times to press sharply a pedal of a brake with intervals 2 - 3 with and give the union on 1/2 - 3/4 turns at the squeezed out pedal. After the brake pedal will rest against a floor, tighten the union. Clean a foot from a pedal. Repeating this process, pump out about 100 ml of an old brake liquid before occurrence new (she can be learnt on light colour). Tighten the prorolling union, close its protective cap and add in the tank a new brake liquid. In the same way pump out an old brake liquid consistently from right back, right forward and left back supports. At prorolling of back supports it is necessary to pump out about 50 ml of a brake liquid.

The merged brake liquid in any case should be pure and without air vials.

    On models with Manual transmission attach a hose to the union of prorolling of coupling, give the union and lower about 50 ml of a liquid. Modify level of a brake liquid according to a mark put in the beginning of procedure. Press a pedal of a brake and check up its free wheeling. Make sure that the brake pedal "does not fail" at its squeezing. On models with Manual transmission check up serviceability of functioning of coupling. In summary check up action of brakes on road with неинтенсивным transport. For this purpose it is necessary to make not less than one strong braking, having checked up at the same time action ABS. A sign of serviceable work ABS is the pulsation of a pedal of a brake at braking.

Effect of action ABS is better it is shown on an unpaved road.
