11:22. Adjustment of the parking brake

Mirage models

On the models equipped with drum brake mechanisms of back wheels previously it is necessary to adjust brake boots of the main brake mechanism.


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Check freedom of the course of a driving cable of the parking brake.
2. Counting the number of clicks of a ratchet, cock the lever of the parking brake with effort of 200 N. The recommended value makes 5 ÷ 7 clicks.
3. In case of need make adjustment.

4. Access to adjusting nuts is possible from within floor section of the central console.

5. Weaken a lock nut of a rod of hummock assembly.
6. Rotation of an adjusting nut achieve the required result (by the number of clicks of a ratchet). Track that between an adjusting nut and the lever the side play was not formed, then tighten a lock nut.

Be not overzealous, - excessively hard tension of a cable can lead to failure of automatic regulators of brake mechanisms, and also "prikhvatyvaniye" of brakes!

7. Having finished adjustment of the course of the lever, to a poddomkratta a car back also check freedom of rotation of back wheels at the released parking brake.
8. Check reliability of keeping of the car the parking brake on a bias.


The Galant models for 1993 the issue.

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. As well as in the previous case, at raising of the lever with effort of 200 N the ratchet has to make from 5 to 7 clicks. The knots of the drive of the parking brake which are subject to adjustment are shown on an illustration.

2. Before starting adjustment of the hummock drive, it is necessary to adjust boots of the parking brake for what the car and establish to a poddomkratta it on props. Take a cap from a brake disk, remove a support and tie up it a wire to suspension bracket elements, without disconnecting the hydraulic line. Rotating a self-regulator castor the suitable tool, block rotation of a brake disk. Turn off a castor on five risok in the opposite direction and make sure that the disk is turned with an easy resistance. Establish into place a support and check serviceability of functioning of the brake mechanism.
3. Having finished adjustment of frictional boots of the parking brake, start adjustment of the hummock drive.
4. Rotation of an adjusting nut achieve the required number of clicks of a ratchet at raising of the lever of the parking brake with a certain effort.
5. A car back also establish to Poddomkratta it on props and check freedom of rotation of back wheels at the released parking brake. In case of need release a little adjusting nut.


The Galant models since 1994 of the issue.

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Requirements for the number of clicks of a ratchet at raising of the lever with effort of 200 N remain the same (5 ÷ 7 clicks). In case of need make the corresponding adjustment.
2. Remove an internal mat of floor section of the central console.
3. Having released an adjusting nut on the end of a rod of hummock assembly, weaken a drive tension.
4. At the engine working at single turns five-six times firmly squeeze out a pedal of a foot brake, - the course of a pedal has to be stabilized that confirms serviceability of functioning of the mechanism of the automatic regulator and correctness of installation of a gap between boots and the working surface of the brake drum.
5. Further, in a standard manner (see the previous subsection) execute adjustment of the hummock drive. Poddomkratte a car back also check freedom of rotation of back wheels at the released parking brake.


Diamante models

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. On the Diamante models the raising of the lever of the parking brake with effort of 200 N has to be followed by three-five clicks of a ratchet.
2. Check correctness of adjustment of boots of the parking brake, in case of need make the corresponding adjustment.
3. Remove floor section of the central console. Release the lever of the parking brake and give a regulator lock-nut in the basis of lever assembly.
4. The car also establish to Poddomkratta it on props. Remove the corresponding back wheel and take a cap from a brake disk.
5. Remove a brake support and, without disconnecting the hydraulic line, tie up it a wire to a suspension bracket element.
6. Rotating a self-regulator castor the suitable tool, block rotation of a brake disk. Turn off a castor on five risok in the opposite direction and make sure that the disk is turned with an easy resistance.
7. Establish into place a support and check serviceability of functioning of the brake mechanism.
8. Having finished adjustment of frictional boots of the parking brake, start adjustment of the hummock drive.
9. Rotation of an adjusting nut achieve the required number of clicks of a ratchet at raising of the lever of the parking brake with a certain effort.
10. A car back also establish to Poddomkratta it on props and check freedom of rotation of back wheels at the released parking brake. In case of need release a little adjusting nut.
