The principle of action and design of components of brake system are in detail considered in the Head Brake system of the present Management.

All components of brake system have the major value from the point of view of driving safety. Regularly, according to the established Schedule (Routine maintenance see the Head), carry out procedures of maintenance service of a vehicle. Try to use only services of firm car repair shops of company Subaru. The first 200 km (125 miles) run after replacement brake колодок try to avoid sharp braking whenever possible.

At movement under a bias, in order to avoid an overheat of brake mechanisms, try to carry out braking of the car by the engine, including for this purpose a hill-climbing gear.

After a strong rain or overcoming of water barriers before to begin movement on full speed, check up efficiency of functioning of brake mechanisms, - become wet Pads and disks can be quickly dried during several braking at movement with small speed.

Recommendations about security measures at operation of the models equipped ABS

ABS does not reduce a brake way of the car and it is capable to provide only preservation of controllability of the car in the course of braking. In view of told it is necessary to support constantly a safe distance to ahead going vehicle, proceeding from speed of the car and concrete traffic conditions.

ABS does not prevent lateral юз at sharp change of a direction of movement of the car. For example, the car can enter into drift at turn passage on too high speed or at jerk of a wheel during lane change. Always support safe speed of a vehicle, being conformed to a condition of a road covering and traffic conditions.

ABS does not prevent loss of course stability of the car. In the course of emergency braking avoid sharp jerks of a steering wheel.

The brake way equipped ABS the car can exceed a little habitual for models with usual brake system. Told especially considerably at movement on fragile and rough road coverings (gravel, snow). At movement in similar road conditions lower speed and increase a distance to ahead going vehicle.

Control lamp of infringements of serviceability of functioning ABS

The self-diagnostics block is included in structure of system of antiblocking. Outwardly procedure of self-diagnostics of system is shown by small pulsations of a foot brake right after engine start. Problem diagnostics ABS is made also at each braking of the car.

At revealing by system of any malfunction on a control panel the corresponding control lamp lights up. Operation of a control lamp testifies that ABS is disconnected. Thus working capacity of working brake system remains to the full, except for function of automatic control of brake effort which is carried out ABS. If control lamp ABS does not die away after start of the engine or joins in movement time, it is necessary to address at the first possibility on the nearest car repair shop.

Joint inclusion of control lamps ABS and refusals of brake system/raising of a lay brake also means switching-off of function of regulation of brake effort that specifies in presence of malfunctions both in ABS, and in brake system. Thus the brake system of the car will continue to provide adequate enough braking of the car, however it is necessary to avoid sharp squeezing of a pedal of a foot brake. Immediately address on the nearest car repair shop.
