Especially important is the ability in cases where a violation of stable work one of the most important systems of a car – brake. On how quickly the driver will notice the problem and proceed to its elimination (or contact), affects the safety of the vehicle for both the driver and others.

Symptoms of brakes and their causes

Sign The cause of the fault Soft brake pedal Air hit in a hydraulic actuator of the braking system due to damage to brake hoses Easing of fastening or a failure of the main brake cylinder Hard brake pedal Damage or disruption of the attachment hose of the vacuum amplifier of brake system Jamming of the piston of the working brake cylinder Swelling rubber o-rings of the main or working cylinder due to contact with extraneous fluids Contamination or wear of friction linings of brake pads Improper installation of brake pads The increase of the working stroke of the brake pedal Air hit in a hydraulic actuator of the braking system due to damage to brake hoses Leakage of brake fluid from the working cylinders Damage or wear of rubber sealing rings master cylinder Incorrect initial setting of the brake pedal The reduction of the working stroke of the brake pedal Violation of backlashes in the mechanism of the brake pedal Jamming of the working cylinder Infringement of adjustment of the vacuum amplifier of brake system The vibration of the brake pedal during braking The wear of the friction linings of brake pads The loosening of the caliper brake system Deformation or uneven wear of brake disc Reduction of braking efficiency The fouling or excessive wear of friction linings of brake pads Jamming of the piston of the working brake cylinder Wrong adjustment of a free wheeling of a pedal of a brake Improper adjustment of the rod of the vacuum amplifier of brake system The failure of anti-lock braking system Incomplete the brakes or jamming of the wheels Swelling rubber o-rings of the main or working cylinder due to contact with extraneous fluids Jamming and sticking of the pistons of the main or working cylinder Incorrect Parking brake adjustment Improper adjustment of the rod of the vacuum amplifier of brake system The vehicle pulls to the side when braking The fouling or pollution of drums, discs and friction linings of brake pads Jamming of the piston of the working cylinder Unreliable fixation or deformity of the caliper The use of friction pads with different friction coefficient The noise and screeching brakes Excessive wear of the friction nakedcelebrity the brake disc, due to long vehicle Parking Sand and small objects on the working surface of the drum, disk or linings Insecure attachment of the brake pad seats in the caliper Good luck to you!
