In the brake system brake support is mounted on a wheel timber. But the brake cylinder is mounted on the brake support. When the brake pedal is pressed, the pistons in the brake cylinder go apart and, therefore, press the brake pads. Brake pad should be pressed to the inner surface of the wheel brake drum, thus slowing down the rotation of the drum until a complete stop. To stop braking, you need to release the brake pedal. After this stops the pressure on the brake shoes and special clamp springs return the shoes to their original positions. Contact and friction between the brake shoes and drum stops, and nothing prevents the car wheel spinning.

If you feel an increased brake pedal free play or reduction of braking effect when the brake pedal is very stiff, this means that the cups in master cylinder or in one of brake cylinders are damaged. If when braking, the vehicle leads to one side, probably, the pistons in the brake cylinders rusted through. In all these cases you need to replace defective parts with new ones. Remember that if the brake cylinder can not be replaced, it can be disassembled without being removed. To do this it is necessary to remove brake shoes.
