Replacement колодок disk brake mechanisms of forward wheels


In order to avoid car withdrawals aside during braking replacement brake колодок should be made simultaneously on both forward/back brake mechanisms. Remember that developed in the course of work of brake mechanisms the dust can contain extremely unhealthy the person asbestos. At all do not blow off a dust the compressed air and do not inhale it, - at service of mechanisms put on a protective mask or a respirator. At all do not use for rubbing of components of brake system gasoline or solvents on an oil basis, - apply only firm cleaners or methyl spirit!


  1. Cock a lay brake, поддомкратьте redock of the car and establish it on props. Remove forward wheels.
  2. Disconnect a screw-driver lock скобы from a support of brakes.

Removal of a fixing spring from a support of the forward brake mechanism

  1. Wring out a screw-driver two covers of directing fingers.
  2. Turn out directing fingers from скобы.

Arrangement of directing fingers

Brake hose leave attached that then it was not necessary to pump over brake system.

  1. Remove assemblage of a support with internal brake колодками and suspend it on a wire to an amortisation rack. Thus the brake hose should not be braided or be stretched.
  2. Take out from directing external brake колодку.
  3. Wring out internal brake колодку from the piston. Колодка it is fixed in the piston by means of lock скобы.

If removed brake колодки it is supposed to use again it is necessary to mark them at removal. Shift колодок is not supposed by places, since it can lead to non-uniform braking. Use original brake колодки or колодки, resolved by firm Opel. All brake колодки a forward disk brake are replaced in the complete set be worn out one of them can only.


Do not press a brake pedal at removed brake колодках, otherwise the piston can leave the case.


  1. Clear a soft brush or wipe the rags moistened in spirit, directing surface and a seat колодок.

Do not apply to this purpose of the solvents containing mineral oils, or the tool with sharp edges

  1. Before installation колодок check up a brake disk on presence of flutes. In the presence of deep flutes give a disk in проточку if it still has a sufficient thickness.
  2. Measure a thickness of a brake disk (the Section condition Check, removal and installation of a brake disk see).
  3. Check up пыльник on presence of cracks. Damaged пыльник replace.
  4. Wring out the piston by means of the corresponding adaptation It it is possible to make by means of wooden бруска or hammer handles. Thus watch that the piston did not warp, and a surface of the piston and пыльник have not been damaged.

Отжимание the piston by means of the special adaptation

At отжимании the piston the brake liquid is squeezed out from the brake cylinder in the tank. Watch, that the liquid did not pour out from the tank and if necessary pump out it. Remember that the brake liquid is poisonous. The flowed out brake liquid can damage a paint and varnish covering and lead to corrosion formation.

  1. At strong deterioration brake колодок check up ease of a piston stroke. For this purpose insert into a support wooden брусок and ask the assistant to press a brake pedal. The piston should to enter and leave easily. Watch that the piston has not been squeezed out completely. At not smooth piston stroke hand over a support in repair.
  2. Establish in the piston internal brake колодку.

Installation internal brake колодки

  1. Insert in directing external brake колодку.
  2. Insert support assemblage through a brake disk from above into a groove of the directing.
  3. Incline support assemblage downwards and press it.
  4. Grease directing fingers with means for fixing hermetic, for example, Loctite Typ 262 and tighten them with effort of 30 Nanometers.
  5. Establish covers of directing fingers.
  6. Insert lock скобы into a brake support.
  7. Establish forward wheels so that the labels put at removal have coincided. Lower the car on the earth and tighten bolts of fastening of wheels with effort of 110 Nanometers.
  8. Some times strongly press a brake pedal so that resistance was felt. Thus brake колодки adjoin to a brake disk and take the place.
  9. Check up level brake a liquid in the tank and if necessary, add a liquid to mark MAX.
  10. Some times brake the car since speed of 80 km/hour till the speed of 40 km/hour soft pressing a brake pedal.

The first 200 km of run avoid strong braking.
