4.3.22. Check of an overall performance of brake system
To check an overall performance of brake system it is desirable at special brake stands (similar to applied traffic polices at carrying out of annual checkup of cars). As a last resort the rough complex assessment of works of brake system can be executed on the equal horizontal platform closed for a traffic. It is desirable, that the platform has been in regular intervals covered by a thin layer of sand.
The check described more low can be spent only on the cars which have been not equipped АБС. If your car is equipped by antiblocking system it is better to address on HUNDRED.
The car without loading (in salon only the driver) disperse on I transfer till the speed about 15 km/h. Sharply press a brake pedal to block wheels, and do not release it to a full stop of the car.
Leave the car and examine the brake traces left wheels of the car. If brake traces of forward wheels are slightly longer back, and the length of traces at the left and on the right is identical, the brake system is serviceable. Otherwise repair system.
|Fig. 4.4. Check of an overall performance of brake system
Following parities (fig. 4.4) should be observed:
L a lion. The lane = L the rights. The lane
L a lion. задн. = L the rights. задн.
L the lane> L задн.
Do not abuse a similar estimation for it is connected with the raised unilateral deterioration of tyres.
