All models of cars considered in the real Management are equipped with hydraulic brake system with vacuum strengthening. On forward wheels disk brake mechanisms whereas mechanisms of back wheels can have both disk, and a drum-type design are always established.
The dual design of the main brake cylinder (GTTs) equipped with two separate tanks allows to break a hydraulic path into two, operating independently from each other, a contour. The last means that in default one of the contours, the second continues to work as before, providing adequate braking of the car. Hydraulic contours have a diagonal arrangement. Refusal of any of contours, naturally, conducts to decrease in efficiency of braking and is accompanied by operation of a control lamp on an instrument guard when squeezing a pedal of a foot brake.
All brake mechanisms are equipped with self-regulators. Thus compensation of wear of brake shoes of disk mechanisms (forward and back) is carried out automatically whereas, on drum-type brake mechanisms the special adjusting devices which activation occurs during braking, and also when raising the parking brake are established.
The system of anti-blocking of brakes (ABS) can be established on all models. On the Zafira models without ABS the valves regulators providing correction of pressure of brake liquid depending on extent of loading of the car are built in both back brake contours sensitive to load of a back axis.
Main brake cylinder (GTTs)
GTTs is established on assembly of the servo-driver of the vacuum amplifier of the brakes, fixed on a back partition of an impellent compartment. From above on the cylinder the big tank of hydraulic liquid equipped with a plastic cover is located. The tank fastens in the cylinder by means of plugs through passage and a cylindrical pin.
As it was already mentioned above, GTTs has the dual design providing functioning of two independent hydraulic contours. Pressure of liquid in each of contours is forced by the individual piston in the main cylinder.
Vacuum amplifier of brakes
The amplifier uses depression created in the inlet pipeline for increase of efficiency of functioning of a hydraulic actuator of brake system. The servo-driver of the vacuum amplifier is fixed on a back partition of an impellent compartment.
The control lever of the parking brake is located in salon of the car and by means of a hummock drive influences brake mechanisms of back wheels. When raising lever on the models equipped with drum-type back brake mechanisms, cables delay the executive levers attached to assemblies of brake boots in mechanisms of both back wheels. Thus boots get divorced in the parties, nestling on a working surface of drums.
At service of components of brake system of cars it is necessary to observe some special precautionary measures:
