Replacement of hoses and tubes of a hydraulic path of brake system

See the preventions provided in the section Brake system.


1. In case of need replacements of a hydraulic tube or a hose merge liquid from hydraulic system (see. Head Uniform hydraulic system). Alternatively minimization of losses of hydraulic liquid can be provided with a way of a perezhimaniye of flexible hoses, or a fast blockage of the disconnected brake tubes and their unions. Prepare to assembly of spilled liquid, having enclosed under the corresponding shtutserny connection (I) polyethylene or rags.
2. In need of a detachment of a flexible brake hose, give a nut of its shtutserny connection with a rigid tube before removing a spring collar of fastening of a hose on the arm.
3. To give cap nuts of shtutserny connections it is best of all by means of a special cap natural a cutting head (ask in shops of automobile accessories). In the absence of near at hand special key it is possible to use densely sitting down on a shlitsa of a nut a rozhkovy key, however in case of strongly tightened nut such way is connected with risk of a rounding off of corners шлицов nuts as a result of key failures. In that case it is necessary to try to give a nut with the help самоконтрящегося an armaturny key (Swede). In case of damage шлицов nuts it is subject to replacement assembled with the tube. Before a partition of shtutserny connection always carefully wipe it outside in order to avoid hit in dirt system. When undocking more than one connection try to remember an order of installation of removed sections precisely.
4. Replaceable brake tubes of various length with the razvaltsovanny ends and the put-on cap nuts can be got in Citroёn company service centers. Having picked up section of the demanded length (corresponding removed) it is necessary to give only to it the necessary form for the correct installation on the car. Alternatively, brake tubes can be made to order in a car-care center workshop of details let out by sets. It is necessary to measure only precisely length of the original removed from the car. It will be most correct to take an old tube with itself in shop or a workshop.
5. At installation do not tighten shtutserny nuts too hardly! Tightness of connection is not so proportional to effort of a tightening of its components, and is defined by correctness of their assembly.

6. At replacement of flexible brake hoses pay attention to an admissibility of use of them in contact to hydraulic LHM liquid. Track correctness of laying of lines, do not allow a perekruchivaniye of hoses and watch, that they were fixed in all provided arms and clamps.

7. Having finished installation of components, add in the tank of hydraulic system necessary amount of liquid of a demanded grade (address to Head Routine maintenance) and pump over a path (see. Pumping of hydraulic system). Wash away traces of the spilled brake liquid and check system on existence of signs of leaks.
