Height of a pedal of a brake has to be regulated after removal or replacement of the main cylinder of brakes or the vacuum amplifier. At the same time it is necessary to adjust also the switch of a signal of braking.

Adjustment of height of a pedal (scheme for the car with the left wheel, on the car with the right wheel is carried out similarly)

For adjustment of height of a pedal release a lock-nut (1) and holding a fork, rotate a pusher (2) until the distance And (between bottom edge of an overlay of a pedal and a partition of a motor compartment) does not correspond specified in subsection 10.2.


On cars with the right wheel adjustment is carried out on the left side of a shaft after the ware box is removed, however the distance is still measured from a pedal.
