How to pump the brakes on the VAZ-2106 correctly with an assistant and independently
Repair of domestic cars VAZ classic series often made in the garage on their own. Therefore, every driver should know the VAZ-2106. It's a simple matter, with a special approach, you can do all the work yourself without the help of a partner. But it is much better to do the repair together, as described in the instruction manual of the car.
When do I need to change the fluid?
The brake system of the VAZ-2106 needs timely maintenance and replacement of components. The fluid must be changed in the following cases:
- With a large resource.Brake fluid contains many additives that can improve the efficiency of the system as a whole, improve cooling. Tubes during operation can be heated by several hundred degrees.
- When replacing tubes and hoses.The resource of these elements does not depend on exploitation.Even if the car will stand for a long time, the rubber elements crack and lose elasticity. Fluid leakage occurs.
- When repairing the main brake cylinder VAZ-2106 and calipers.As a rule, it is not always possible to completely drain the brake fluid from the system. Yes, and you should not re-fill it, if she has worked over 1.5-2 years.
If the liquid works for a long time, then it is constantly heated to critical temperatures. As a result, all additives evaporate, the effectiveness of the brakes becomes much lower.
Replacing the GTZ on the "six"
To replace the main brake cylinder VAZ-2106, you will need a minimum set of tools - a special key and an open-end wrench for 8, a cap or head for 13. To replace a GTZ, you need to perform the following actions:
- From the tank to pump out all the liquid with a pear.
- Remove expansion tank.
- Special key to rip the tube.
- Unscrew the tubes and put them aside.
- Unscrew the two nuts securing the GTZ to the vacuum booster.
- Remove the cylinder.
Install the new one in reverse order. Upon completion of the work fluid is poured into the system. It is imperative to carry out pumping - due to air traffic jams, the effectiveness of the brakes will be insufficient.Try to fill only the liquid that was used previously and recommended by the manufacturer of the car. Other fluids can damage the brake system - corrosion will occur and leakage will occur. And now it's time to learn how to pump the brakes on the VAZ-2106 with your own hands.
What is needed for pumping?
To pump the brakes, you need the following tool:
- Special key for 8 crimp type. He is called - the key for the brake pipes.
- Spanner 8 and 10.
- Bank - the volume of 0.3-0.5 liters.
- The tube is transparent - you can use the one that connected the washer nozzles to the pump.
It is also necessary to have a reserve of brake fluid. The system holds 0.5 liters. Therefore, it is advisable to buy with a margin - the benefit is not very expensive, about 300 rubles per 1 liter. The rest can be used for refilling or at the next refueling.
Before pumping the brakes on the VAZ-2106, you need to check the tightness of all tubes to prevent leakage. Particular attention should be paid to those nodes that were repaired before pumping. It is advisable to carry out the work together.The order of pumping: from the farthest wheel to the neighbor. The first is pumped through the mechanism of the rear right wheel, the last - the front left.
The procedure is as follows (for example, the first wheel):
- The assistant sits in the car and waits for the team.
- You pour a little liquid into the container, lower the tube into it. Put the other end on the bleed nipple. Be sure to tear off all connections in advance with a special key.
- Assistant needs 4-5 times to press the brake pedal of the VAZ-2106 until it stops. At the last pitching, fix the pedal to the floor.
- You need to unscrew the fitting for a ½-1 turn so that the air can escape. After that, tighten it back.
Items 3 and 4 must be performed until the brake fluid without air begins to flow through the tube. After completion, tighten the fitting and proceed to pumping the next brake mechanism. And so on until you get rid of the air in the system.
Is it possible to pump the brake system without an assistant?
There are several ways to pump the brake system without a partner. The easiest way is to take the cover of the expansion tank and slightly modify it. To do this, install the union with the valve.You will also need a conventional camera or wheel. It is necessary to screw the cover on the tank, on the camera fitting to install the tube. The second end of it is put on the fitting in the stopper of the expansion tank.
And now briefly about how to pump the brakes on the VAZ-2106 in this way:
- Press a brake pedal against the stop and fix it.
- In turn, unscrew the bleed nipples on the brake mechanisms of the wheels.
- Monitor the level of fluid in the system - in a timely manner topping up.
- When finished, tighten all threaded connections.
Try not to mix different types of liquids - this can lead to overheating in the system and its unstable operation.
