Folksvagen Sharan/Sharan repair>> Brake system>> Disk brakes of forward wheels>> Check of a thickness of overlays brake колодок
At braking loading on brake колодки forward disk brakes more than on back brake колодки. In this connection they wear out faster.
Before to change brake колодки, it is necessary to measure a thickness of overlays on brake колодках. Service life brake колодок is calculated approximately on 50 000 km of run of the car during which periodically check a thickness of overlays on brake колодках. Exists corrected that under adverse conditions of driving of an overlay of 1 mm brake колодки grinds off a minimum for 1000 km. Usually overlays serve much longer.
For a rough estimate of a thickness of overlays brake колодок which should be spent regularly, illuminate a portable lamp in an observation port of a support and visually estimate a thickness of overlays brake колодок.
For exact definition of a thickness of overlays brake колодок it is necessary to remove a forward wheel (поддомкратив a forward part of the car and having turned out крепящие a wheel bolts) and to measure a thickness external and internal brake колодки. If the thickness of an overlay together with brake колодкой makes 7 mm the border of deterioration of an overlay is reached and колодки it is necessary to replace. The thickness колодки without an overlay makes 5 mm and deterioration of an overlay till the thickness of 2 mm is limiting.

The prevention
Brake колодки always replace in pairs (in the complete set 4 pieces) even if the overlay only one колодки and simultaneously on both brake mechanisms of forward wheels has worn out. To rearrange in places brake колодки it is forbidden.
