The prevention

The old brake liquid has more dark colour, than new.

Operation on replacement of a brake liquid is similar to operation of prorolling of brakes except that the tank of a brake liquid should be released from an old brake liquid.

1. Open the first union of prorolling and swing a brake pedal until the old brake liquid leaves the main brake cylinder. Add a brake liquid to a label max in a tank and pump over once again before occurrence in the union of prorolling of a new brake liquid then screw up the prorolling union. Similarly pump over brake contours of other wheels.
2. At carrying out of prorolling do not suppose lowering of level of a brake liquid in a tank below a label min. Otherwise air can get to hydraulic brake system.
3. Check up reliability of a tightening of unions of prorolling, establish on them dustproof caps and wipe traces of a brake liquid.
4. Check up action of brake system at car movement on small speed.
