Disk brake mechanism of back wheels

Except for the 66 kW model which is not equipped with ABS which is let out till October of 92 g on the back bridge disk brake mechanisms instead of the drum are installed. It is, as well as in a case with brakes of the forward bridge, about disk brake mechanisms with a floating bracket.

In addition to the hydraulic drive through a brake pedal the disk brake mechanism can be served also by the hummock drive of system of the parking brake. The lever on which the corresponding cable is fixed, puts a pusher with which the brake piston nestles on blocks in action.

Automatic control

Designs of disk brake mechanisms in the car are always carried out by the self-regulating: with the increasing wear of brake shoes the brake piston simply leaves farther a support of the disk brake mechanism, providing thereby a dense prileganiye of brake shoes to a brake disk. Owing to filling of the added volume in the cylinder with brake fluid formation of a side play is impossible.

On another it occurs in the mechanical drive of parking brake system: here press the drive pusher at some point of time simply could not get the piston coming to light if there was no adjusting device. It "extends" a pusher as required. The main part of regulation is a carving on which depending on wear of blocks everything further forward wells up part of a pusher. The press device thus becomes longer. Therefore when replacing blocks it is impossible to push simply back the brake piston, it is turned off back on the adjusting device.
