Brake linings

Check the linings through the inspection holes in the brake backing plates. Use the measuring tool shown on page 9 when inspecting the brake linings.

Minimum thickness of standard linings is 7 mm; oversize lining minimum thickens is 9 mm.

Asbestos-free brake linings have a wear line which shows the minimum permitted thickness at which good braking function can still be obtained. If the linings are judged to be so worn that they cannot function properly, they should be replaced at the next servicing.

Checking brake pad wear

Brake pedal

Check the condition of the rubber pad on the pedal. Move the pedal from side to side to check the condition of the pedal bearing.
