The brake system consists of the main brake cylinder, the amplifier of a brake and disk brakes of forward and back wheels. The brake hydraulic system has two contours: one contour influences forward wheels, another back. Thanks to it at refusal of one of contours braking of the car is carried out by other contour. Liquid pressure in the brake system is created in the dual main brake cylinder when pressing a brake pedal.
The tank with brake fluid is located in a motive compartment on the left side over the main brake cylinder. It provides with liquid all brake system. The amplifier of a brake at the block of cylinders accumulates a part of the vacuum created by the engine at absorption. Via the valve the effort of a pedal of a brake if necessary amplifies vacuum. As the diesel engine has not enough vacuum created at absorption, vacuum is created by the special vacuum pump located on a head of cylinders.
Disk brakes are equipped with supports with one cylinder.
The parking brake is set in motion through hummock drafts and influences back wheels. As the disk brake is inefficient as parking, on back wheels there are in addition two drum brakes which are built in brake disks. Drum brakes are put in action only via the lever of the parking brake.
Systems of stabilization of stability of the car on ABS/CBC/ASC Road + T/MSR/DSC
ABS: The anti-blocking system interferes with blocking of wheels at sharp braking of the car. Thanks to it even during braking the car remains operated.
Continuation of ABS is the braking control system on turns SVS (Cornering Brake Control). SVS recognizes by signals of four ABS sensors that the car moves on turn. If braking happens on turn, it usually leads to the fact that the car tries as if to be screwed in turn. This effect is a consequence of the increasing load of a forward axis. The braking control system on turns SVS regulates increase of brake effort in such a way that it accrues quicker on a forward wheel, external in relation to turn, than on other wheels. Thus, action, the return to the effect stated above is created. SVS works at turns practically as system of electronic distribution of effort. Thanks to it there is possible an impact on back wheels with big brake effort.
ASC (system of automatic stabilization) reduces torque of both driving wheels by reduction of engine capacity when wheels at dispersal of the car begin to be turned.
In the presence of the effort control system coupling (+ the T) at start-off of the car from the place brake the turned wheels. As a result of it the torque switches to the "linked" wheels. The considered system practically works as the electronic blocked differential which is disconnected at a speed over 40 km/h. Use of the system ASC + T is displayed to the driver by fire of a control lamp.
The system of regulation of the traction moment of MSR is integrated into the system ASC + T. This system interferes with blocking of driving wheels on the flat road due to brake operation of the engine when switching to lower transfer or at gas reduction.
At the movement of the car with snow chains in deep snow or at start-off from the place from deep dirt it is expedient to disconnect the system ASC + T by means of the switch on the central console. At repeated turning on of the specified switch or at the following start of the engine the system ASC + T again automatically joins.
The system of dynamic control of stabilization of DSC is installed as the additional equipment on model 328 i. The monitor of the DSC system carries constantly out comparison of the current parameters of the movement with the parameters of perfect condition received in the settlement way. If, for example, the car at the movement on turn nedoupravlyatsya too strongly, the power of the car and, therefore, speed of the movement decrease, at the same time the system brakes a back wheel, internal in relation to turn. Thanks to it the turned forward wheels create more side direction and the car does not leave turn.
Instructions on the systems ABS/CBC/ASC + T/MSR/DSC
The scheme of safety in an electronic control unit watches that with defect, for example, break of a cable, or at too low voltage of the rechargeable battery (it is lower than 10 V) the system was disconnected. During the normal work after inclusion of ignition the control lamp lights up for a short time and then dies away. If the lamp does not die away and in the course of the movement continuously lights up, then it indicates malfunction existence. The car can be operated further, but the system of electronic regulation is disconnected.
If in the course of the movement one or several control lamps on the control panel light up, pay attention to the following:
1 Stop the car for a short time, switch off the engine and again start it.
2 Check tension of the rechargeable battery. If it less than 10.5 In, charge the battery.
3 Check whether plugs of the rechargeable battery are tightened and whether there is a reliable contact.
4 Lift and install the car on supports. Remove wheels, check external survey existence of damages of wires of sensors of speed of wheels (existence of mastications). More careful inspection of the system ABS/CBC/ASC + T/MSR/DSC should be carried out by means of special devices. Address the Section Diagnostics of Malfunctions. Work it is desirable to carry out HUNDRED in conditions.
