Replacement of brake shoes of disk brake mechanisms

Replacement of brake shoes should be made at the same time on both forward/back brake mechanisms. Remember that developed in the course of operation of brake mechanisms the dust can contain extremely unhealthy the person asbestos. At all do not blow off a dust the compressed air and do not inhale it – at service of mechanisms dress a protective mask or a respirator. At all do not use for rubbing of components of brake system by gasoline or solvents on an oil basis – apply only firm cleaners or methyl alcohol!

Procedure equally belongs to disk brake both forward, and back wheels.


1. Uncover the tank of brake liquid.
2. Weaken nuts of fastening of forward wheels. To Poddomkratta a car front/back also establish it on props.
3. Remove forward/back wheels.

Replacement of all four blocks of brake mechanisms of both wheels of one axis should be made at the same time. In order to avoid confusion work with each mechanism in an individual order.

4. Attentively examine a brake disk (see. Condition check, removal and installation of a brake disk). In case of need pro-point performance, remove a disk.

Brake mechanisms of forward wheels


1. By means of a clamp drown the piston in the support cylinder, having provided with that necessary free space for installation of the new blocks having big thickness (see an accompanying illustration). At a piston utaplivaniye in a support liquid level in the GTTs tank will rise, – watch, that it did not start to overflow, in case of need pump out surplus.

2a. Before starting dismantle of components surely wash them a special cleaner (see an accompanying illustration).

2b. Turn out the bottom bolt of a support (the bottom arrow); top the arrow showed a hollow bolt of shtutserny connection of a brake hose; the hose is subject to a detachment only if there is a need for removal of a support from the car.

2с. Turn a support up, having provided with that access to brake shoes.

2d. For support fixing in the lifted situation tie up it a wire to a suspension bracket rack.

2е. Remove an external brake shoe with adjusting laying.

2f. Remove an internal brake shoe (on some models the internal block is not equipped with adjusting laying).

2g. Remove the top and bottom spring holders of blocks and check their conditions (remember that the internal block is also equipped by holders).

2h. Track reliability of landing of spring holders in the flutes in an anchor bracket of a support (in case of need replace holders).

2i. Internal (at the left) and external brake shoes with adjusting laying of an external block (on some Integra models of the last years of release the internal block also is supplied with adjusting laying).

2j. Before installation of adjusting laying grease the back party of blocks with special antivizgovy structure.

2k. Establish an internal brake shoe (track that uvulas on the top and bottom ends of a block entered into reciprocal flutes and appeared are reliably fixed by spring holders).

2l. Establish an external brake shoe (if adjusting laying is not included into a set of new blocks, establish on a block old laying).

2m. Before lowering a support do not forget to check a condition of protective covers of directing fingers; the damaged covers replace.

2n. Before installation it is necessary to smooth out and grease an external finger of a support with refractory greasing; the same should be done with the bottom fixing bolt of a support

This requirement belongs only to the Civic models with long humeral bolts and the fixed top fingers [type 2056 support]).

2о. Lower a support in regular situation (if the piston rests against an internal block, wring out it in the cylinder a clamp).

2р. Screw the bottom bolt of a support and tighten it with demanded effort.

Brake mechanisms of back wheels


1а. Turn out fixing bolts and remove the support filter.

1b. Turn out two bolts of fastening of a support.

1с. Remove a support from an anchor bracket and tie up it a wire to a suspension bracket element – try not to allow tensions of a brake hose.

1d. Remove an external block with adjusting laying.

1е. Remove an internal block with adjusting laying.

1f. Remove from a support holders of blocks (the bottom holder is shown, top looks and it is established similarly).

2. Cover the back party of new blocks with special antivizgovy structure (see an accompanying illustration). The instruction on using means is usually unpacked on a ballonchik wall.

3. Establish on blocks the adjusting laying.
4. Establish holders of blocks in an anchor bracket of a support. Grease holders of blocks with a thin layer of silicone greasing.
5. Establish new brake shoes with adjusting laying in an anchor bracket of a support.

6. By means of nippers turn the piston, having drowned it in the support cylinder for the purpose of providing necessary free space under installation of new brake shoes (see an accompanying illustration). At first drown the piston to the bottom the cylinder, turn out it back so that at installation of an internal block its inflow got to one of a vyborok on a face surface of the piston. Track, that as a result of rotation of the piston it did not appear the boot is deformed.

7. Having finished assembly of the brake mechanism, establish to the place of its filter.

Brake mechanisms of lobbies and back wheels


1. Establish to the place of a wheel, lower the car on the earth and tighten nuts of fastening of wheels with demanded effort (see. Specifications to Head Routine maintenance).
2. Several times squeeze out a brake pedal and (if changed back blocks) the lever of the parking brake for the purpose of a usadka of blocks on a disk.
3. Check level of brake liquid, in case of need make the corresponding adjustment (see. Head Routine maintenance). Before starting normal operation of the car, make sure of serviceability of functioning of brake system.
