15.2. General information

On the car the working brake system with the hydraulic drive and diagonal division of contours is used that considerably increases safety of driving of the car. On models with anti-blocking system of brakes it is used forward and back brake contours. The brake system consists of the main brake cylinder, the vacuum amplifier of brakes, disk brakes on forward wheels and drum or disk brakes on back wheels.

For reduction of effort, putting a brake, my to a pedal, the vacuum amplifier of brakes is installed. The vacuum amplifier of brakes works with use of depression in an inlet collector. At failure of the vacuum amplifier of brakes operability of the brake system remains, but at the same time for pressing a pedal of a brake it is necessary to put considerably bigger effort.
