Surely you make replacement of all blocks on one axis of the car even if the limit of wear was reached by one block.

1. Lift a back part of the car and record on supports. Remove back wheels.
2. Remove spring clamps (are specified by shooters), the fixing pins holding brake shoes.
3. Remove the spring preventing vibration of blocks.
4. Using flat-nose pliers, take internal and external brake shoes from a support.
5. Measure thickness of an overlay of each brake shoe.
6. If blocks are suitable for further operation, clear them, using a wire brush and rags.
7. Before installation of blocks check that the directing plugs easily move in a support and rubber protective covers are not damaged.
8. If new brake shoes are established, press the piston into a support a wooden core or the handle of the hammer. At the same time you watch that the piston did not warp, and the surfaces of the piston and a boot were not damaged. At a piston vdviganiye brake fluid is forced out from the brake cylinder in a broad tank therefore constantly watch liquid level in a tank, and if necessary pump out its small amount from a tank.
9. Establish brake shoes in a support.
10. Establish into place the spring preventing vibration of blocks. Establish the pins holding blocks, passing them through an opening in a support, a brake shoe and the center of the spring preventing vibration of blocks. Fix pins by spring clamps.
11. Several times press a brake pedal that brake shoes nestled on a brake disk. Check the level of brake fluid in a tank. Check that the internal ledge of a block was correctly combined with one of support piston grooves.
12. Repeat above-mentioned actions on the second wheel.
13. Establish wheels and lower the car.

14. Check the level of brake fluid.
