Check of thickness / side beating of a brake disk


  1. Processing of brake disks is not allowed. In the presence of grooves 0,5 mm are deeper or strong wear the disk has to be replaced. At the same time always to replace both disks on one axis.
  2. To mark the provision of a disk of a wheel concerning a nave that the balanced wheel could be established in former situation.
  3. To weaken nuts of a wheel of the car standing on the earth.

  5. To remove a wheel.
  6. Cars from 10/89 g of the issue, except models "the versatile person: To screw 2 nuts of a wheel that the brake disk was correctly отцентрован.
  1. To measure thickness of a brake disk. In workshops the special measuring instrument or a micrometer as because of wear on a brake disk the edge is formed is for this purpose used. Thickness of a disk can also be measured by a usual caliper, however from each party of a disk it is necessary to enclose laying of the known thickness. For determination of exact thickness of a disk it is necessary to subtract the total thickness of laying from the received value.

To perform measurement in several points of a disk.

  1. If the limit of wear is reached, the brake disk should be replaced. Limit of wear see the Section Specifications of the brake system
  2. In the presence of big cracks and grooves 0,5 mm are deeper, the brake disk should be replaced.
  1. If there is an arrow indicator, to measure a side beating of a brake disk in the established state. To install the indicator to an outer edge. The required value: maximum side beating of 0,1 mm. Too big side beating can be caused by the broken hug bearing, for check to address in a workshop.
  1. If necessary to unscrew wheel nuts.
  2. To screw a wheel, considering a tag on a nave. To lower the car and to tighten wheel nuts cross-wise with effort of 100 Nanometers.
