Removal

Arrangement of the springs which are drawing in brake shoes on models with a continuous brake disk

Removal of the springs which are drawing in brake shoes on models with continuous brake disks

Removal of an external brake shoe on models with continuous brake disks

Removal of an internal brake shoe and laying on models with continuous brake disks

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Note an arrangement of the springs which are drawing in brake shoes (see rice. Arrangement of the springs which are drawing in brake shoes on models with a continuous brake disk), then from the fingers holding brake shoes take pins. Using a drift and the hammer, beat out fingers from a support.
2. Remove the springs which are drawing in brake shoes (see rice. Removal of the springs which are drawing in brake shoes on models with continuous brake disks).
3. Take away brake shoes from a brake disk, then take an external brake shoe (see rice. Removal of an external brake shoe on models with continuous brake disks).
4. Take the internal brake shoe and laying located between a brake shoe and the piston of a support from a support (see rice. Removal of an internal brake shoe and laying on models with continuous brake disks).

Installation

Installation of the fingers holding brake shoes on models with continuous brake disks

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Purify dust and dirt from a support, and a rust from edge of a brake disk. If blocks are suitable for further operation, clear them, using a wire brush and rags.
2. If new brake shoes are established, press the piston into a support a wooden core or the handle of the hammer. At the same time you watch that the piston did not warp also the surfaces of the piston and a boot were not damaged. At a piston vdviganiye brake fluid is forced out from the brake cylinder in a broad tank therefore constantly watch liquid level in a tank, and if necessary pump out its small amount from a tank.
3. Check that dredging on the piston of a support is located on a vertical axis. If necessary, turn the piston in the correct situation.
4. Apply a thin film of lubricant for the brake system on the top and lower end faces of the metal basis of new brake shoes.
5. Establish new brake shoes on a support, at the same time between an internal brake shoe and the piston establish laying. Check that brake shoes freely move in a support.
Establish the springs which are drawing in blocks then from outer side of a support implant fingers, pressing the springs which are drawing in blocks. Using the hammer, hammer fingers against the stop into a support (see rice. Installation of the fingers holding brake shoes on models with continuous brake disks).
Similarly replace brake shoes on the second wheel.
Establish wheels and lower the car on the earth. Tighten bolts of fastening of a wheel the required moment.
Several times press a brake pedal that brake shoes nestled on a brake disk.
Check the level of brake fluid in a tank.
After installation of new brake shoes avoid sharp braking during the first 160 km of a run of the car.
