General information

The principle of functioning and design of components of brake system are in detail considered in Head Brake system of the real Management.

All components of brake system are essential from the point of view of driving safety. Regularly, according to the established Schedule (see. Head the Current leaving and service), carry out procedures of maintenance of a vehicle. The first 200 km (125 miles) run after replacement of brake shoes try to avoid sharp braking whenever possible.

At movement under a bias, in order to avoid an overheat of brake mechanisms, try to carry out car braking by the engine, including for this purpose a low gear.

After a heavy rain or overcoming of water barriers before beginning movement on full speed, check efficiency of functioning of brake mechanisms, - the become wet blocks and disks can be quickly dried during several braking at movement with small speed.

During towage of a faulty vehicle do not forget that at the muffled engine functioning of the vacuum amplifier of brakes stops, in view of what each pressing a pedal of a foot brake demands application of bigger effort.

In default brakes during movement braking by means of the parking brake is allowed, - remember that the brake way in this case considerably increases.

Use of the parking brake at car movement with normal speed can lead to control loss over management, - try to act as much as possible carefully!

It is not necessary to hold a foot on a brake pedal during movement, is it is interfaced to risk of an overheat of brake mechanisms and premature wear of brake shoes, and also it is capable to affect length of a brake way negatively!

Parking brake

The lever of the parking brake is located on the central console, between forward seats. Raisings of the parking brake it is made by lever procrastination up against the stop. For an otpuskaniye of the parking brake press on built in in an end face of the handle of the lever the button, slightly pull the last up for a conclusion of teeths of the ratchet mechanism from gearing, then, without releasing the button, lower the lever down.

Leaving the car on parking do not forget to switch besides raising of the parking brake a transmission on 1-yu/reverse a gear (models from RKPP) / to transfer the selector lever to the situation "R" (to model from AT).

At a stop on lifting park the car as it is possible closer to the region of the carriageway and turn out wheels so that at a casual skatyvaniye they rested against a bordyurny stone.

Before a start of motion do not forget to release the parking brake, - the corresponding control lamp on a combination of devices (see. The section the Combination of devices, measuring instruments, control lamps and light indicators) should go out.

Recommendations about security measures at operation of the models equipped with ABS

ABS does not reduce a brake way of the car and is capable to provide only preservation of controllability of the car in the course of braking. In view of told it is necessary to support constantly a safe distance to ahead going vehicle, proceeding from speed of the car and specific conditions of movement.

ABS does not prevent lateral юз at sharp change of the direction of movement of the car. For example, the car can enter into drift when passing turn on too high speed or at wheel breakthrough during lane change. Always support safe speed, being conformed to a condition of a paving and traffic conditions.

ABS does not prevent loss of course stability of the car. In the course of emergency braking avoid sharp breakthroughs of a steering wheel.

The brake way of the equipped ABS car can exceed a little habitual for models with usual brake system. Told especially considerably at movement on roads with fragile and to rough coverings (gravel, snow), - do not forget to reduce in similar conditions speed and to increase a distance to ahead going vehicle.

Control lamp of violations of serviceability of functioning of ABS

The self-diagnostics block is switched on in structure of system of anti-blocking. Outwardly procedure of self-diagnostics of system can be shown in the form of insignificant pulsations of a pedal of a foot brake right after engine start. Problem diagnostics of ABS is made also at each braking of the car.

At identification by system of any malfunction the control lamp of ABS built in in the dashboard (is activated see. Section Combination of devices, measuring instruments, control lamps and light indicators). Operation of a control lamp during movement testifies to ABS shutdown. Thus operability of working brake system remains fully, except for function of automatic control of brake effort which is carried out by ABS. If the control lamp of ABS does not die away after implementation of start of the engine, or works during movement, it is necessary to address at the first possibility on the next HUNDRED.

Joint activation of control lamps of ABS and refusals brake systems/raisings of the parking brake also means shutdown of function of regulation of brake effort that points to existence of malfunctions both in ABS, and in brake system. Thus the brake system of the car will continue to provide rather adequate braking of the car, however it is necessary to avoid sharp squeezing of a pedal of a foot brake. Immediately address on the next HUNDRED.
