8.14. Pumping of brakes


Need of pumping arises after a detachment of tubes of the main cylinder or at strong lowering of the level in a tank.

When dismantling a hydraulic actuator of one wheel it is possible to be limited to pumping only of the understanding contour.

Press several times a pedal of a brake and remove residual depression in the amplifier.

Before pumping restore liquid level in a tank and during pumping support level, without allowing a tank opopustosheniye. Fill in only fresh liquid.

1. Begin pumping with a back right wheel. Attach a hose to the union, lower other end of a hose in a vessel with brake fluid.
2. Ask the assistant to press slowly a pedal of a brake and to hold.
3. Unscrew the union and later 2 sec. after the stream of the liquid following with bubbles weakens, tighten the union. Ask the assistant to release a pedal.
4. Repeat the procedure until in the following liquid bubbles do not cease to be observed. Tighten the union.
5. Perform these operations in the sequence: left back wheel, right forward, left forward, pressure regulator. Upon termination of restore liquid level in a tank.
6. Check rigidity of a pedal and work of brakes.


If a pedal "soft", then repeat pumping. If it is not possible to remove air, then hit of air in ABS system valves can be the cause. Therefore if a pedal "soft" after repeated pumping lamps of BRAKE or ANTI-LOCK also burn, then tow off the car in car service for check by the scanner.
