10.1.4. General adjustment of back brakes (Girling)



The rope of a parking brake should not be tense when checking adjustment of back brakes.

1) by means of the screw-driver take away the support lever against the stop on both back wheels
2) the rope of a parking brake is tense too strongly if the lever of one of supports departs from an emphasis (it is specified by an arrow)
3) weaken an adjusting nut of a rope of a parking brake (it is specified by an arrow) so that both levers fell by an emphasis
4) insert the screw-driver with a diameter at least 6 mm between a back hook of a spring and the bearing
5) press a pedal of a brake about 40 times (the engine is killed)
6) check that both wheels rotated freely
7) remove the screw-driver
