9.8.1. Replacement of blocks of brake mechanisms of forward wheels

Check a condition of brake shoes at each maintenance (see. "Check of degree of wear of brake shoes, disks and drums").
Brake shoes need to be replaced at wear of slips, fragile connection of slips with the basis, oiling of working surfaces, existence of deep furrows or chips.

Replace brake shoes of forward brake mechanisms only with a set from 4 pieces (on two with each party).
Before replacement of brake shoes check the level of brake fluid in a tank of the main brake cylinder. If level is close to the top tag, it is necessary to pump out a part of liquid: after replacement of worn-out blocks new the level of liquid will rise.

It will be required to you: a key "on 13", two strengthened screw-drivers or sliding passatizh.
1. Remove the left forward wheel.
2. Turn out the lower bolt of fastening of a support...
3.... also lift a support up.
4. Remove brake shoes from guides.

Pay attention to marking of brake shoes. Get new blocks with the same marking.

5. Examine the fixing springs of blocks...
6.... replace strongly deformed or corroded springs.
7. Drown the piston of the working cylinder by means of sliding passatizhy.

Useful tips
At each replacement of brake shoes without fail check a condition of protective rubber covers of the directing fingers and the nature of movement of a support concerning a guide of brake shoes. If movement is complicated, grease with jellied lubricant the directing support fingers. For this purpose...
... take the directing finger...
... grease it with jellied lubricant and put lubricant in an internal cavity of a cover. Establish a finger in a guide of blocks as it should be, the return to removal.
Check a condition of a protective cover. If there were rubber aging signs, replace protective covers of the directing fingers.

8. Establish brake shoes of the forward brake mechanism as it should be, the return to removal. For an exception of a samootvorachivaniye of a bolt of fastening of a support before installation grease its carving with an anaerobic clamp of a carving.
9. Press several times a brake pedal to bring brake shoes to a disk.
10. Establish a wheel.
11. Similarly replace brake shoes of the brake mechanism of the right wheel.
12. Check and if necessary restore the level of brake fluid in a tank of the main brake cylinder.

Good advice
Having replaced worn-out brake shoes new, you do not hurry to come out to brisk highways at once. It is not excluded that at the first intensive braking you will be unpleasantly struck with low efficiency of brakes though blocks are established company. Brake disks wear out too, and new blocks concern only them edges, practically without braking. Choose the quiet small street or journey without cars and several times smoothly slow down that blocks got used and began to adjoin all surface. At the same time estimate also efficiency of brakes.
Try not to brake sharply at least the first 100 km. At strong heating of not earned extra blocks the top layer of their slips burns slightly and brakes will not be the most effective for a long time.
