Replacement of boots of drum-type brake mechanisms of back wheels

Replacement of boots should be made at the same time on both brake mechanisms. See also prevention at the beginning Removal, repair and installation of supports of disk brake mechanisms!

At the same time with replacement of brake boots replacement of their coupling and directing springs which as a result of constant cyclic mechanical and thermal loadings are stretched/give over time should be made also, stopping to develop demanded effort that conducts to a prikhvatyvaniye of brakes and acceleration of wear of drums.

Components of the drum-type brake mechanism of a back wheel

1 — the Board of the brake mechanism
2 — the Wheel cylinder
3 — the Fork of a razzhimny level
4 — the Adjusting bolt
5 — the Fork of a razzhimny level
6 — the Top coupling spring
7 — the Lever of an automatic regulator
8 — the Spring of an automatic regulator
9 — the Bottom coupling spring
10 — the Directing spring

11 — the Brake boot
12 — the Executive lever of the parking brake
13 — the Cable of a drive of the parking brake
14 — the Cover of the wheel bearing
15 — a pin Clamp
16 — the Washer of a spindle of a back axis
17 — the Anchor finger
18 — Shplint
19 — Shpindelnaya a nut
20 — the Brake drum


1. Weaken nuts of fastening of back wheels. To Poddomkratta a car back also establish it on props. Prop up forward wheels protivootkatny boots. Remove back wheels and release the parking brake.

2a. The design of the drum-type brake mechanism is presented on an illustration above. Remove a brake drum from a nave. The drum should act in film rather freely, in case of difficulties, is accurate обстучите its hammer with soft brisk, or screw in carving openings pair of bolts М8 (see an accompanying illustration).

3. Replacement of boots is simpler for making after removal from a pin of an axis of stupichny assembly (uncover the wheel bearing, give a shpindelny nut and remove a washer (see. Head Suspension bracket and steering).

4a. Operating according to the instructions stated further, make check of a condition of components and replace brake boots. Act strictly in the stipulated order. Remember that all four boots of both brake mechanisms should be replaced at the same time.

4b. Before starting dismantle of components, wash out them a special cleaner, then dry (AT ALL DO NOT BLOW OFF the BRAKE DUST the COMPRESSED AIR!).

4с. A screw-driver wring out down directing spring, then develop an anchor finger the lock parallel to a groove in a spring – the last thus should jump aside from a boot.

4d. Remove bashmachny assembly from a brake board (the nave is for descriptive reasons removed).

4е. Disconnect a coupling spring.

4f. Delay a spring on a cable of a drive of the parking brake so that there was a possibility to grasp a cable бокорезами, holding a spring in the compressed condition (try not to cut a torso); now disconnect a cable tip from the executive lever of the parking brake.

4g. Turn the executive lever of the parking brake, taking away it from a back brake boot – thus the fork of an adjusting bolt of a razzhimny level should be liberated from the landing flute in a boot what to allow to separate boots.

4h. Remove the lever and a spring of an automatic regulator from a forward brake boot.

4i. Remove a clamp and disconnect the executive lever of the parking brake from a back boot (do not lose the bent washer established under a lock ring).

4j. Connect to the lever a new back boot (do not forget to enclose under a clamp a bent washer); nippers compress the clamp ends together.

4k. Clean an adjusting bolt and forks of a razzhimny level, then grease them with refractory greasing.

4l. Hook on a spring of an automatic regulator for an opening in a new forward boot, then fill a lever finger in other special opening in a boot.

4m. Fill a short fork of a razzhimny level in the groove in a forward boot (track correctness of input of a fork in gearing with the lever of an automatic regulator.

4n. Connect the top coupling spring to both brake boots, dissolve the bottom ends of boots and fill a fork of a razzhimny level in a groove in a back boot (track correctness of an arrangement of a step ledge of a fork).

4о. Grease surfaces of a brake board contacting to boots with refractory greasing.

4P. Bokorezami compress a spring of a driving cable of the parking brake (do not cut a cable) and, holding her in such situation, connect a cable tip to the executive lever.

4q. Establish bashmachny assembly on a board of the brake mechanism, having planted the top ends of boots in grooves in pistons of the wheel cylinder; connect to boots the bottom coupling spring.

4r. Pass anchor fingers in openings in a brake board and boots, establish directing springs; develop fingers, having fixed springs; track, that the spring of a cable of a drive of the parking brake and the bottom coupling spring appeared got under levels of an anchor bracket as it is shown in a picture.

5. Before installation of a drum it is necessary to check it on existence задиров, furrows, traces of an overheat and other defects. At identification of the serious damages which traces cannot be eliminated with a way of processing of a drum a fine-grained emery paper, it is necessary to give a drum to a pro-point (with observance of the maximum admissible repair diameter). If the pro-point of a drum cannot be made without violation of requirements to the maximum admissible internal diameter (it is beaten out on a drum – see an accompanying illustration), it is necessary to make its replacement. If to make a pro-point of drums it is not obviously possible, at least carefully smooth out them working surfaces a fine-grained emery paper.

Originators of the real Management recommend to make a pro-point of drums regardless of their condition for the purpose of any removal of defects and ovality elimination.

6. Establish into place nave assembly with the wheel bearing, put on a washer and screw a new shpindelny nut, having tightened it with demanded effort (see. Specifications to Head the Suspension bracket and a steering).
7. Establish into place a wheel, then lower the car on the earth and tighten wheel nuts with demanded effort (see. Specifications to Head Routine maintenance).
8. Several times brake the car at movement it both to lobbies, and a backing for the purpose of carrying out automatic adjustment of brake mechanisms.
9. Before starting car operation, make sure of serviceability of functioning of brakes.
