2.2.7. Each 2 years irrespective of car run Replacement of brake liquid



Old brake liquid has more dark color, than new.

Operation on replacement of brake liquid is similar to operation of pumping of brakes except that the tank of brake liquid should be released from old brake liquid.

1. Open the first union of pumping and swing a brake pedal until old brake liquid leaves the main brake cylinder. Add brake liquid to max label in a tank and pump over once again before emergence in the union of pumping of new brake liquid then screw up the pumping union. Similarly pump over brake contours of other wheels.
2. At carrying out pumping do not allow lowering of level of brake liquid in a tank below min label. Otherwise air can get to hydraulic brake system.
3. Check reliability of a tightening of unions of pumping, establish on them dustproof caps and wipe traces of brake liquid.
4. Check action of brake system at car movement on small speed.
