Replacement of brake shoes of disk brake mechanisms

Replacement of brake shoes has to be made at the same time on both forward/back brake mechanisms. Remember that the dust produced in the course of operation of brake mechanisms may contain extremely unhealthy asbestos of the person. Do not blow off dust compressed air at all and do not inhale it – at service of mechanisms put on a protective mask or a respirator. Do not use for rubbing of components of the brake system gasoline or solvents on an oil basis at all – apply only company cleaners or methyl alcohol!

The procedure equally belongs to disk brake both forward, and back wheels.


1. Uncover the tank of brake fluid.
2. Weaken nuts of fastening of forward wheels. A car front/back also establish to Poddomkratta it on props.
3. Remove forward/back wheels.

Replacement of all four blocks of brake mechanisms of both wheels of one axis has to be made at the same time. In order to avoid confusion work with each mechanism in an individual order.

4. Attentively examine a brake disk (see Check of a state, removal and installation of a brake disk). In case of need performance of a pro-point, remove a disk.

Brake mechanisms of forward wheels


1. By means of a clamp drown the piston in the support cylinder, having provided thereby necessary free space for installation of the new blocks having big thickness (see an accompanying illustration). At a piston utaplivaniye in a support liquid level in the GTTs tank will rise, – watch that it did not begin to overflow, in case of need pump out surplus.

2a. Before starting dismantle of components surely wash them a special cleaner (see an accompanying illustration).

2b. Turn out the lower bolt of a support (the lower arrow); top the arrow showed a hollow bolt of nipple connection of a brake hose; the hose is subject to a detachment only if there is a need for removal of a support from the car.

2 pages. Turn a support up, having provided thereby access to brake shoes.

2d. For fixing of a support in the lifted situation tie up it a wire to a suspension bracket rack.

2e. Remove an external brake shoe with adjusting laying.

2f. Remove an internal brake shoe (on some models the internal block is not equipped with adjusting laying).

2g. Remove the top and lower spring holders of blocks and check their states (you remember that the internal block is also equipped by holders).

2h. Track reliability of landing of spring holders in the flutes in an anchor bracket of a support (in case of need replace holders).

2i. Internal (at the left) and external brake shoes with adjusting laying of an external block (on some Integra models of the last years of release the internal block is also supplied with adjusting laying).

2j. Before installation of adjusting laying grease the back party of blocks with special antivizgovy structure.

2k. Establish an internal brake shoe (track that uvulas on the top and lower ends of a block entered reciprocal flutes and were reliably recorded by spring holders).

2l. Establish an external brake shoe (if adjusting laying is not included in the package of new blocks, establish on a block old laying).

2m. Before lowering a support do not forget to check a condition of protective covers of the directing fingers; replace the damaged covers.

2n. The external finger of a support before installation should be smoothed out and greased with refractory lubricant; the same should be done with the lower fixing bolt of a support

This requirement belongs only to the Civic models with long humeral bolts and the fixed top fingers [a support of type 2056]).

2 lakes. Lower a support in regular situation (if the piston rests against an internal block, wring out it in the cylinder a clamp).

2 rubles. Screw the lower bolt of a support and tighten it with the required effort.

Brake mechanisms of back wheels


1a. Turn out fixing bolts and remove the support filter.

1b. Turn out two bolts of fastening of a support.

1 pages. Remove a support from an anchor bracket and tie up it a wire to a suspension bracket element – try not to allow tensions of a brake hose.

1d. Remove an external block with adjusting laying.

1e. Remove an internal block with adjusting laying.

1f. Remove from a support holders of blocks (the lower holder is shown, top looks and it is established similarly).

2. Cover the back party of new blocks with special antivizgovy structure (see an accompanying illustration). The instruction for use of means is printed usually out on a barrel wall.

3. Establish the adjusting laying on blocks.
4. Establish holders of blocks in an anchor bracket of a support. Grease holders of blocks with a thin layer of silicone lubricant.
5. Establish new brake shoes with adjusting laying in an anchor bracket of a support.

6. By means of nippers turn the piston, having drowned it in the support cylinder for the purpose of providing necessary free space under installation of new brake shoes (see an accompanying illustration). At first drown the piston to the bottom of the cylinder, turn out it back so that at installation of an internal block its inflow got to one of selections on the face surface of the piston. Track that as a result of rotation of the piston the boot was not deformed.

7. Having finished assembly of the brake mechanism, install into place its filter.

Brake mechanisms of forward and back wheels


1. Establish to the place of a wheel, lower the car on the earth and tighten nuts of fastening of wheels with the required effort (see Specifications to the Head Routine maintenance).
2. Several times squeeze out a brake pedal and (if changed back blocks) the lever of the parking brake for the purpose of shrinkage of blocks on a disk.
3. Check the level of brake fluid, in case of need make the corresponding adjustment (see the Head Routine maintenance). Before starting normal operation of the car, make sure of serviceability of functioning of the brake system.
