GENERAL INFORMATION

Intensity of wear of overlays of brake shoes depends first of all on service conditions and style of driving of the car. Wear in the conditions of city movement is especially great and at car operation mainly at short distances with frequent stops or at strongly pronounced sports management style the car. In these cases it is urgently recommended to carry out in addition control check of a condition of overlays of brake shoes in the service enterprise Volkswagen in intervals between planned maintenance. On cars with sensors of wear of overlays of brake shoes the control lamp signals about limiting wear of overlays of forward brake mechanisms.

At movement on descents of big extent it is necessary to use brake properties of the engine for what it is necessary to pass to lower transfers in due time. Load of brake mechanisms thereby decreases. If there is a need of an additional pritormazhivaniye with use of working brake system, to apply it follows with intervals, instead of is continuous.
