8.1. Introduction
THE GENERAL DATA

On the car the working brake system with a hydraulic drive and diagonal division of contours is applied that considerably raises safety of driving of the car. The brake system consists of the main brake cylinder, the vacuum amplifier of brakes, disk brakes on forward wheels, and drum-type or disk brakes on back wheels. All models are equipped by the antiblocking system of brakes consisting of the hydraulic modulator, the electronic block of management, the relay and gauges of speed of rotation of wheels. The system prevents blocking of wheels at sharp braking. On cars with diesel engines for creation of the vacuum which is ensuring functioning of the vacuum amplifier of brakes, the separate vacuum pump which is established on the end of a head of the block of cylinders is applied and put in action directly from a camshaft (model 1,7) or attached to the generator (model 2,0).
