The drum is replaced if it is damaged, cracked, and the working surface is worn out up to a diameter of more than 283 mm. We replace all four rear wheel pads at the same time.

ATTENTION: Brake drums are machined complete with hubs, so we install the removed drums only in their original places.

Installation

We rearrange the removed parts to new pads.

We install new brake pads in reverse order, after which we adjust the gap between the pads and the brake drum.

We install the drum, lubricating its landing belt with SHRUS-4 grease or graphite grease.

ATTENTION: The brake drum is installed on the hub in only one position, since the screw holes are made with a variable pitch around the circumference.

We install the wheels and press the brake pedal several times to self-install the elements of the brake mechanisms.
