Pumping of brake system

Pumping of brake system make in goggles. At casual hit of brake liquid in eyes immediately wash out them a plentiful quantity of water and address for the help to the doctor!

Pumping of hydraulic system is made for the purpose of removal from it of the air getting to a path at performance of service of brake mechanisms, replacement of hydraulic lines or GTTs, and also when lowering below the minimum admissible value of level of liquid in the tank of the main cylinder.


1. If air got to system owing to falling of level of liquid in the GTTs tank, or at a detachment from GTTs of brake lines, brake mechanisms of all four wheels are subject to pumping. At a detachment of lines from any of supports / wheel cylinders will enough pump over only this concrete brake mechanism.
2. If the detachment of the brake line from the union located between GTTs and one of brake mechanisms was made, only this part of a brake contour is pumped over.
3. Several times squeeze out a pedal of a foot brake at the switched-off engine for dumping of residual depression in the vacuum amplifier of brakes. Uncover the GTTs tank, necessarily add to the tank fresh liquid, then enclose under a cover polyethylene and screw it into place.

Do not forget to check regularly liquid level in the tank during pumping performance. Excessive falling of level is fraught with hit in air GTTs that will bring to naught all undertaken efforts and will cause need of pumping of all brake system.

4. Secure with the help of the assistant, prepare a stock of more freshly brake liquid, the transparent vessel which has been partially filled with brake liquid, the piece of a plastic hose which is densely put on the gate of pumping, and a suitable rozhkovy key for отпускания / gate tightenings.

Models with ABS


1. At GTTs replacement, or after excessive lowering of level of hydraulic liquid in its tank on the equipped ABS models, begin procedure with pumping of the brake lines connected to the main cylinder. Ask the assistant to squeeze out slowly against the stop a pedal of gas and to hold her in the bottom situation. Serially weaken shtutserny connections of the brake lines brought to GTTs, letting out from them the liquid mixed with air. Repeat procedure until from the cylinder free liquid from air bubbles will not start to be pushed out. Now it is possible to pass to pumping of the hydraulic modulator of pressure.
2. For modulator pumping densely plant on the gate of its pumping a piece of a plastic hose. Having started the engine, lift pressure in the modulator, then release the gate on 1/8÷1/4 a turn, letting out the brake liquid mixed with air.

Hydraulic liquid is in the modulator under a high pressure. At all do not release the pumping gate more than on 1/4 turns in order to avoid sharp emission of a stream of hydraulic liquid. Muffle the engine and pump over other components of brake system (see below).

At inclusion of a control lamp of ABS on an instrument guard of the car the procedure described in the last paragraph should be repeated.

All models


1. Slightly weaken the gate of pumping of the brake mechanism of the right back wheel, then again tighten it so that it easily and was quickly released during procedure performance.

2. Pull on the gate the suitable plastic or rubber hose which second end lower in transparent vessel partially filled with pure brake liquid (see an accompanying illustration). The cut of a hose should appear completely shipped in liquid.

3. Ask the assistant to squeeze out slowly several times a pedal of a foot brake, having lifted thereby pressure in system.
4. At fixed in we string the provision of a brake pedal slightly open the pumping gate so that from it brake liquid started to be forced out. Watch a liquid exit from the end of a hose shipped in liquid. Through pair of seconds when the pressure will weaken, close the gate and allow to release to the assistant a pedal.
5. Repeat procedures of the last two paragraphs until free liquid will not start to follow from the gate from air bubbles, then pass to the brake mechanism of the left forward wheel. Operating in a similar manner, pump over this mechanism, then mechanisms left back and right forward wheels.

Constantly watch that liquid level in the GTTs tank did not fall excessively low!

6. At all do not add in the tank old brake liquid, – it is hygroscopic in the highest measure and over time absorbs in itself a lot of moisture that conducts to falling of a point of its boiling and, as a result, to decrease in efficiency of braking. Besides, presence at hydraulic system of moisture promotes the accelerated aging of a material of flexible brake hoses.
7. On termination of pumping add in the GTTs tank fresh brake liquid, having brought its level into norm.
8. Check efficiency of functioning of brakes. The pedal when squeezing should show firm resistance, – the feeling of softness of its course testifies to existence in hydraulic contours of air and need of repetition of procedure of pumping.

Do not start at all car operation, being not absolutely sure of serviceability of functioning of brake system!
