Check of the brake amplifier

Area round the brake amplifier with the engine of 1,6 l: 1–a tank with brake liquid; 2–brake amplifier; 3–a vacuum tube from an inlet collector; 4–an ezhektor for strengthening of the lowered pressure

The same look, as in the photo above, but with the six-cylinder engine: 1–a tank with brake liquid; 2–brake amplifier; 3–a vacuum tube from an inlet collector; 4–the returnable valve in a vacuum tube


    The engine should be switched off. Press a pedal of a brake of 10 times. Hold a pedal wrung out and start the engine. If the brake amplifier is serviceable, the pedal should move a little. If the pedal does not fall, the brake amplifier is faulty. At failure of the brake amplifier defect, most likely, is covered in system of the lowered pressure: the vacuum hose from an inlet collector to the brake amplifier is not tight, the returnable valve in a vacuum hose, defect in a rubber ring between the main brake cylinder and the servo-driver or a membrane of the brake amplifier is not tight. For check of the returnable valve remove a vacuum hose from the servo-driver. It is blown, the otsasyvaniye is inadmissible. The returnable valve is on sale only together with a vacuum hose. To replace the damaged rubber ring between the main brake cylinder and the amplifier, it is necessary to dismantle the cylinder. In summary there is still a defect of the most brake cylinder. In this case repair is impossible – it is necessary to replace it.

Dismantle of the brake amplifier

For weakening of a rod of brake pressure upon pedals of a brake of Audi uses the special tool 3289. Unfortunately, without this tool it is impossible to manage. Sequence of actions:


    Dismantle the main brake cylinder. Dismantle a vacuum hose. Unscrew two fixing bolts of the brake amplifier (TORX T45). Dismantle a pocket at the left under a control panel (head Salon). Disconnect on a brake pedal the switch of fires of stoplights and valves of ventilation of system of adjustment of speed. Establish on the lever of a pedal of a brake the special tool 3289. Now it is possible to disconnect press a rod of the brake amplifier from a pedal (pull a pedal back). Take out the brake amplifier from an impellent compartment. If the new brake amplifier is established, the length of a rod of its management needs to be adjusted in the dismantled condition. The distance between the end of a rod of management (it should stand vertically) and an adjacent surface with two cut openings should make 158,5 mm (the admission of 0,5 mm). After adjustment tighten a lock-nut. Before installation slightly grease a sharnirny finger. Use a new clamp for a sharnirny finger and new самоконтрящиеся nuts. Put a new sealing ring between the brake amplifier and the main brake cylinder.
