Removal and installation of the main brake cylinder

Failed GTTs is subject to replacement. Manufacturers do not recommend to undertake attempt of carrying out regenerative repair of the main brake cylinder.



1. The main brake cylinder is in an impellent compartment of the car and is fixed on assembly of the vacuum amplifier of brakes.
2. Pump out from the GTTs tank as the bigger amount of liquid available in it (use a syringe or a rubber pear) is possible.
3. Enclose rags under shtutserny connections and prepare caps or plastic bags for a blockage of the open ends of brake lines for the purpose of hit prevention in dirt system.

Brake liquid is among aggressive chemical compounds and at contact to body panels destroys a paint and varnish covering. Before starting performance of procedure cover wings and the panel of a front of the car with special covers, or simply old blankets.

4. Weaken nuts of shtutserny knots of connection to GTTs of brake lines (see an accompanying illustration). In order to avoid a rounding off шлицов nuts give them by means of a special cap natural a cutting head.

5. Having slightly delayed outside, separate brake lines from unions of the main cylinder. At once закупорьте open ends of tubes.
6. Disunite the socket of electroconducting of the sensor switch of level of brake liquid on the GTTs case, then release two fixing nuts and separate the main cylinder from assembly of the brake amplifier. Remove the cylinder from fixing hairpins and take it from an impellent compartment (try not to spill filling the cylinder hydraulic liquid on the painted body panels).



1. Before installation new GTTs is necessary for pumping over on a workbench. For convenience clamp a landing flange of the cylinder in a vice with soft sponges (see an illustration below) – further it is necessary to manipulate at the same time the piston in the cylinder and to watch a stream of the brake liquid which is pushed out through the final union.

2. Connect to the GTTs final unions pair of tubes from a special set for pumping (ask in shops of automobile accessories) (see an accompanying illustration).

3. Fill in in the tank fresh brake liquid of a demanded grade (see. Head Routine maintenance).
4. Slowly push pistons in the cylinder (it will be most convenient to use a big screw-driver with a crosswise sting). Air should start to leave delivery chambers in the tank. It is thus important, that the ends of both tubes were completely shipped in the brake liquid which was in the tank to exclude probability of a podsasyvaniye it back in the cylinder at an otpuskaniye of pistons.
5. Continue pumping until liquid pushed out through tubes completely will not be released from air bubbles.
6. Serially disconnect tubes, at once corking the open ends of unions. Close the GTTs tank a cover.
7. Put on GTTs hairpins on assembly of the vacuum amplifier and while only by hand, tighten fixing nuts.
8. Screw in the cylinder unions of brake lines. As the cylinder is not fixed yet finally, its situation can be corrected slightly for the purpose of simplification of procedure of a vvorachivaniye of unions – try not to strip a thread.
9. Tighten with demanded effort of a nut of fastening of GTTs, densely tighten shtutserny connections.
10. Fill in in the GTTs tank fresh brake liquid and pump over brake system (see. Pumping of brake system). GTTs pumping on the car (if did not do it on a workbench) will need the help of the assistant which will manipulate a pedal of a foot brake. Ask the assistant to squeeze out several times a pedal, then to fix it in the bottom situation. Weaken a shtutserny nut, letting out from the cylinder an air mix with brake liquid. Repeat procedure until pushed-out liquid completely will not be released from air bubbles. Operating in a similar manner, pump over the second union.
11. Before starting car operation, make sure of serviceability of functioning of brakes.
