The general information

The principle of functioning and design of components of brake system are in detail considered in the Head Brake system of the present Management.

All components of brake system have the major value from the point of view of driving safety. Regularly, according to the established Schedule (Current leaving and service see the Head), carry out procedures of maintenance service of a vehicle. The first 200 km (125 miles) run after replacement brake колодок try to avoid sharp braking whenever possible.

At movement under a bias, in order to avoid an overheat of brake mechanisms, try to carry out braking of the car by the engine, including for this purpose a hill-climbing gear.

After a strong rain or overcoming of water barriers before to begin movement on full speed, check up efficiency of functioning of brake mechanisms, - become wet колодки and disks can be quickly dried during several braking at movement with small speed.

During towage of a faulty vehicle do not forget that at the muffled engine functioning of the vacuum amplifier of brakes stops, in view of what each pressing a pedal of a foot brake demands application большего effort.

In default brakes during movement braking by means of a lay brake is supposed, - remember that the brake way in this case considerably increases.

Use of a lay brake at movement of the car with normal speed can lead to control loss over management, - try to operate as more as possible cautiously!

It is not necessary to hold a foot on a pedal of a brake during movement, is it is interfaced to risk of an overheat of brake mechanisms and premature deterioration brake колодок, and also is capable to affect length of a brake way negatively!

Lay brake

The lever of a lay brake is located on the central console, between forward seats. Raisings of a lay brake it is made by lever procrastination upwards against the stop. For отпускания a lay brake press on built in in an end face of the handle of the lever the button, slightly pull last upwards for a conclusion of teeths of the ratchet mechanism from gearing, then, without releasing the button, lower the lever downwards.

Leaving the car on parking do not forget to switch besides raising of a lay brake a transmission to a 1-1/reverse gear (models with Manual transmission) / to translate the selector lever in position Р (to model with АТ).

At a stop on lifting park the car as it is possible more close to edge проезжей for a part and turn out wheels so that at casual скатывании they rested in бордюрный a stone.

Before a start of motion do not forget to release a lay brake, - the corresponding control lamp on a combination of devices (the Section the Combination of devices, measuring instruments, control lamps and light indicators see) should go out.

Recommendations about security measures at operation of the models equipped ABS

ABS does not reduce a brake way of the car and it is capable to provide only preservation of controllability of the car in the course of braking. In view of told it is necessary to support constantly a safe distance to ahead going vehicle, proceeding from speed of the car and concrete traffic conditions.

ABS does not prevent lateral юз at sharp change of a direction of movement of the car. For example, the car can enter into drift at turn passage on too high speed or at jerk of a wheel during lane change. Always support safe speed, being conformed to a condition of a road covering and traffic conditions.

ABS does not prevent loss of course stability of the car. In the course of emergency braking avoid sharp jerks of a steering wheel.

The brake way equipped ABS the car can exceed a little habitual for models with usual brake system. Told especially considerably at movement on roads with fragile and rough coverings (gravel, snow), - do not forget to reduce in similar conditions speed and to increase a distance to ahead going vehicle.

Control lamp of infringements of serviceability of functioning ABS

The self-diagnostics block is included in structure of system of antiblocking. Outwardly procedure of self-diagnostics of system can be shown in the form of insignificant pulsations of a pedal of a foot brake right after engine start. Problem diagnostics ABS is made also at each braking of the car.

At revealing by system of any malfunction control lamp ABS (the Section the Combination of devices, measuring instruments, control lamps and light indicators see) is activated built in in the panel of devices. Operation of a control lamp during movement testifies to switching-off ABS. Thus working capacity of working brake system remains to the full, except for function of automatic control of brake effort which is carried out ABS. If control lamp ABS does not die away after realisation of start of the engine, or works during movement, it is necessary to address at the first possibility on the nearest HUNDRED.

Joint activation of control lamps ABS and refusals of brake system/raising of a lay brake also means switching-off of function of regulation of brake effort that specifies in presence of malfunctions both in ABS, and in brake system. Thus the brake system of the car will continue to provide adequate enough braking of the car, however it is necessary to avoid sharp squeezing of a pedal of a foot brake. Immediately address on the nearest HUNDRED.
