Check of a state, removal and installation of a brake disk

Check of a state


1. Weaken nuts of fastening of wheels, cock the parking brake, the car and establish to a poddomkratta it on props. Remove the corresponding wheel.
2. Remove a brake support (see the Section Removal and installation of supports of disk brake mechanisms) and tie up it aside a wire to a suspension bracket element, without disconnecting a brake hose, try that the hose was not tense or overwound.
3. Make visual check of a condition of both working surfaces of a disk. Easy defects can be eliminated by means of a fine-grained emery paper. For removal of furrows more than 0.4 mm in depth the disk should be removed and subjected to a pro-point. Remember that the disk has to be examined from both of its parties!
4. If during braking pedal pulsations were noticed, it is necessary to estimate the size of a side beating of a brake disk. Fix the dial measuring instrument of plunger type (DTI) at distance about 12.7 mm from the outer edge of a disk (address an accompanying illustration). Nullify the device and begin to rotate a disk. The result of measurement should not exceed the limit of the admissible range stipulated in Specifications, otherwise the disk needs to be given to a pro-point.

Authors of the present manual recommend to make a pro-point of disks regardless of their state for the purpose of removal from any working surfaces of defects. As a last resort it is possible to be limited to processing of a disk a fine-grained emery paper.

5. At a pro-point of a disk it is necessary to pay special attention to observance of requirements of Specifications to its minimum admissible thickness, on a face surface of a disk the corresponding marking is provided. Measurement of thickness of a disk is performed in several points by means of a micrometer.

Removal and installation


1. Remove the ABS sensor from a rotary fist.
2. Remove brake shoes and a support.
3. Remove assembly of a nave and separate it from a brake disk.
4. Carefully wash out and examine components of assembly of a disk/nave.
5. Make assembly of a nave, establish it on the regular place and make adjustment of a pretightness of the wheel bearing.
6. Establish into place assembly of a support with brake shoes (see the Section Removal and installation of supports of disk brake mechanisms) and pump over the brake system (see the Section Pumping of the Brake System).
7. Establish wheels, lower the car on the earth and tighten wheel nuts with the required effort (see the Head Nastroyki and routine maintenance of the car).
