Diagnostics

Independently, you can do the actual assessment of the braking system. To do this, accelerate the car on a flat dry road up to 60-80 km/h and press the brake pedal. The path should be smooth, without vibration and strange sounds. You should repeat the experiment several times. Such diagnostics of braking path is carried out every 20 000-30 000 kilometers. Service and cleaning system from dirt should be done every 10 000 kilometers.

Serviceshop specialists will analyze the internal state of the system. The drum surface must be smooth, and the maximum diameter shall not exceed 204.4 mm (at a nominal drum size of 181.25 mm). Depending on the vehicle model and the type of drums exceeding the maximum diameter should not be more than 12% of the nominal diameter of the drum.

Analysis of the brake system is also carried out on a special brake stand, where the resistance of each wheel is measured at different loads.

Repair of the brake drum

Scratches on the working surface of the drum is a defect that can be eliminated in a service shop without having to replace the part itself. Firstly, it allows to remove the initial symptoms of brake drum failure(vibration and wobbling, and increase in the stopping distance). Secondly, it is much cheaper than replacement.

Grooving the drum is a mechanical impact on the work surface to return to its original state. Thus, using a lathe a mechanic removes the damaged top layer. Minimum thickness of the drum should be learned from the manufacturer. Modern automatic lathe allows you to process the operation with the highest precision.
