2. Slowly turn a brake disk so that it could be considered from two parties. If necessary remove brake колодки. Deterioration of a brake disk from колодок should be in admissible limits. If deterioration exceeds an admissible limit or there are cracks on a disk, the disk is subject to replacement.
3. If necessary clear on perimetre a disk of a rust and a brake dust.
4. The indicator of hour type check up palpation of a brake disk. The indicator of hour type fix in any convenient place and, turning a disk, define its palpation in several points from its centre. If disk palpation exceeds admissible limits, the disk is subject to replacement. However failure of the bearing of a nave can be the reason of palpation of a disk.
5. For check of palpation of an inside of a brake disk remove a brake disk from a nave, turn it on 180 , repeatedly fix on a nave and by the indicator of hour type measure its palpation.
6. Check up a brake disk on presence of cracks, especially round apertures under bolts of fastening of a wheel.


1. Unscrew two bolts of fastening of a support to a nave. Remove a support and, using a soft wire, adhere it to a forward rack. Thus do not deform and do not stretch a brake hose.

     – Combine earlier made labels, establish a brake disk and fix screws, having tightened their demanded moment;
     – If the new brake disk, that is established, using solvent, clear it of protective greasing;
     – Before screwing up of bolts of fastening of a support a carving of bolts cover with means from unscrewing (Loctite Frenetanch);
     – Establish a wheel and lower the car;
     – Some times press a brake pedal that brake колодки were established into position.
