Replacement of boots of the parking brake (disk brake mechanisms of back wheels)


  1. Weaken hooks of fastening of wheels, release the parking brake, a back of the car and establish to a poddomkratta it on props. Block wedges forward wheels in order to avoid a car otkatyvaniye.
  2. Remove back wheels.
  3. Cut off lock washers and remove a brake disk (see an illustration).

If the drum is not removed freely from shoe assembly, make sure that the parking brake is completely released, then impregnate with the getting oil a joint between a nave and a drum and repeat attempt. If the drum is still not removed, it is necessary to take away boots from its walls. It is made by extraction of a stopper from a board of the brake mechanism. Then the narrow screw-driver take away the lever from an adjusting castor and the second screw-driver rotate a castor, taking away boots from drum walls. Now the drum has to be removed freely

  1. Take a stopper from a board of the brake mechanism and pass throughout the opened opening the tool for adjustment of brakes.

… press the tool to the top part of an adjusting castor and begin to rotate the last down (clockwise if to look at the car behind), taking away thereby boots of the parking brake from disk nave walls (which in a picture is for descriptive reasons already removed).

  1. You make check of a state and replacement of boots of the parking brake according to illustrations below. Observe the recommended order of performing procedures and attentively study explanatory notes to pictures.

All four boots of the parking brake have to be replaced at the same time, however in order to avoid a pereputyvaniye of components perform works with each of assemblies serially.

  1. Fingers having pushed out a clamp from a brake board, hook the forward holding clip, having released it; take a finger and lay it together with a clip in a plastic bag, having excluded thereby danger to lose small components.
  1. Working similarly, remove the back holding clip and a finger.
  1. Disconnect the lower spring from boots of the parking brake.
  1. Remove the regulator.
  1. Disconnect the top spring from a back boot of the parking brake.
  1. Take off both boots of the parking brake.

In a picture the scheme of assembly together of boots, springs and the regulator is submitted.

  1. Having squeezed new boots together by means of the top spring, establish them on assembly.
  1. Part the top ends of boots and hook on them for a support as shown in a picture.
  1. Install into place the regulator.
  1. Make sure that the regulator is hooked for boots as it is shown in a picture.
  1. Establish the lower spring.
  1. Make sure that rounds of the lower spring are turned down - from the regulator as it is shown in a picture.
  1. Establish a back finger and the holding clip as shown; the head of a finger has to sit down densely in the lower, smaller part of an opening in a clip.
  1. Establish by a similar image a forward finger and the holding clip.
  1. Before installation to the place of a disk check working surfaces of its nave for existence of cracks, scratches, furrows and spots of an overheat. If any of the listed above defects it cannot be removed by means of an emery paper (No. 180), the disk has to be replaced.
  2. After installation of new boots of the parking brake establish into place brake disks. Do not forget to establish new lock washers of fixing of disks on hairpins.
  3. Take rubber traffic jams from brake boards, pass the adjusting tool throughout the opening which opened in a board and, rotating a gear castor, achieve easy "prikhvatyvaniye" of a disk at its rotation (see the illustrations "Take a Stopper from a Board of the Brake Mechanism..." and "… press the tool to the top part of an adjusting castor..."). Now turn a castor in the opposite direction, before release of a disk - hold at the same time the screw-driver the regulator lever taken away from a castor. Repeat the procedure of adjustment for the brake mechanism of an opposite wheel. Establish to the place of a stopper of brake boards.
  4. Put on wheels, screw nuts of their fastening and lower the car on the earth. Tighten nuts of fastening of wheels with the required effort (see Specifications to the Head Nastroyki and routine maintenance).
  5. For final self-regulation of brake mechanisms make a number of braking at the movement of the car both the back, and forward course.
  6. Before starting operation of the car make sure of serviceability of functioning of the brake system.
