Check the level of brake fluid in a tank in an engine compartment. It has to be between the top and lower mark. If level is close to the lower mark, add to the top mark of the SAE L703 or OOT-3 brake fluid.
Failure to follow the following instructions can lead to injuries or serious damage of brakes. to When the level of brake fluid will fall in a tank below a certain level, on the dashboard the indicator of system of brakes will light up (it is supposed that the engine works, and the emergency brake is completely released). In this case address, without hesitating, to the official dealer of Suzuki for check of the brake system.
Bystry decrease in level of liquid means leak in the brake system.
Brake fluid is harmful to eyes and paint and varnish coverings. Add a tank very carefully.
Use brake fluids only of the SAE J1703 or DOT-3 brands. Do not use the brake fluids regenerated or stored in open capacities. It is important that with brake fluid pollution and foreign substances did not get to a tank.
At disk brakes liquid level gradually decreases in process of wear of brake shoes.
|Fig. 1.207. The minimum distance between a pedal and a floor
Check that the brake pedal when pressing always stops at normal height and does not spring. Otherwise address the dealer of SUZUKI for check. At doubts concerning correctness of the course of a pedal It is possible to check it as follows.
The minimum distance between a pedal and a floor "and": 110 mm
At the working engine measure distance between a pedal and a floor under effort of pressing about 30 kgfs. Minimum admissible distance is stated above. The brake system of the car – self-regulating, adjustment of a pedal is not required.
If the distance between the pressed pedal and a floor is less than norm, address the dealer of Suzuki for check of brakes.
At measurement of distance between a pedal and a floor do not include in it rug thickness.
Number of clicks of a ratchet of "b": 6–8; Effort on the lever 1: 200 N (20 kgfs)
Correctness of adjustment of the parking brake can be determined by the number of clicks of a ratchet at a slow raising of the lever to the full. The lever has to stop after the above-stated number of clicks of a ratchet; back wheels at the same time have to be slowed reliably down. If adjustment is wrong or the brake takes after full lowering of the lever, address the dealer of Suzuki for check and adjustment.
