Check of brake system on tightness and existence of damages

When carrying out check the bottom of the car has to be dry in order that it was possible to see not tight sites. Brake fluid spreads also under dirt. Places, dark from dampness, can be tightness violation signs.


  1. Check all connecting knots and points of connection, and also brake supports.
  2. Brake hoses should not be damp, bulked up or erased. Otherwise – replace.
  3. Brake tubes are covered with the protective layer protecting from a rust. If this layer is damaged, it can lead to emergence of a rust. Therefore never clean pipes a screw-driver, an emery paper or a wire brush, use an old rag.
  4. If the protective layer is damaged, on naked places it is necessary to apply a thin film of an anticorrosive primer.
  5. Tubes with flows of a rust or flattened should be replaced.
  6. On all unions of pumping there are protective caps? They are above on supports.
  7. Temporarily you can carry out an inspection of pressure in brake system:
  8. Up to the end wring out a brake pedal.
  9. It should not give in even after several minutes of full loading if it not so, the cuff in the main brake cylinder is defective.
  10. Because of not tight cuff the level of brake fluid in a tank does not go down, liquid under pressure squeezes by the piston of the main brake cylinder on that party where there is no pressure.
  11. Not tight sites on cuffs of pistons of brake supports are distinguished on dark stains on brake supports.
  12. In a doubtful case address in a workshop.
