9.9.5. Replacement of a brake liquid
THE GENERAL DATA

The prevention

Observe safety measures at work with a brake liquid: it is toxic. Hit of a brake liquid on wires, the plastic or painted details of a body can cause their damage. Therefore always enclose pure rags at pouring in a tank. At liquid hit on a detail at once wipe their pure rag.

Do not use the liquid merged from system repeatedly: it is polluted, sated by air and a moisture.

Brake liquid гигроскопична (absorbs a moisture from air), therefore it cannot be stored in open container.


To hydrosystem refuelling apply only a brake liquid FMVSS 571.116 DOT 4.

Sequence of replacement of a liquid in brake mechanisms:

  – The back right;
  – The back left;
  – The forward right;
  – The forward left;
  – A coupling drive.

PERFORMANCE ORDER

The prevention

Replacement of a brake liquid is recommended to be spent with the assistant, having established the car on a viewing ditch or a platform.


1. Uncover a tank of the main brake cylinder.
2. Clear of a dirt the valve of release of air and remove its protective cap.
3. Put on one end of a rubber hose the valve and other end ship in a pure transparent vessel.
4. The assistant should press sharply a pedal of a brake of 4-5 times and leave a pedal pressed.
5. Turn on on 1/2 – 3/4 turns the valve of release of air – the old (dirty) brake liquid will start to follow from a hose. Thus the brake pedal should move smoothly against the stop. As soon as the liquid will cease to follow, wrap the valve of release of air.
6. Repeat operations 4 and 5 while the new (pure) brake liquid will not start to follow from a hose. Constantly watch liquid level in a tank, without supposing its decrease below label MIN, and if necessary add a new brake liquid.
7. With the same way replace a liquid in other brake mechanisms and a coupling drive.
8. Press some times a brake pedal. The course and resistance of a pedal should be constants by each pressing. If these conditions are not carried out, means, air has got to brake system and it is necessary for pumping over.
