The increased noise and car withdrawal aside when braking, increase in a course of a pedal of a brake and a pulsation of effort on it, leakage of brake liquid testify to malfunction of brake system.
For check of thickness of brake shoes of disk brakes lift the corresponding part of the car and establish it on supports, remove a wheel. Check thickness of blocks through an opening in a support. If necessary remove a support and take blocks for survey. If thickness of frictional overlays of brake shoes less admissible, it is necessary to replace all blocks (in a set). Measure thickness of brake disks by a micrometer. If thickness of a disk less admissible, on it there are cracks or overheat zones — its replacement is necessary.
Before installation of wheels check a condition and freedom of moving of brake hoses. Thus hoses should not concern any sharp sides.
