Disk brakes

Disk brakes provides optimum efficiency of braking, dispensing of brake forces and loading ability.

Insignificant run, long-term storage on parking and small loadings cause corrosion of brake disks and pollution brake колодок as at braking that minimum effort of pressing колодок to disks which is necessary for self-cleaning of disk brakes does not develop.

Korrodirovavshie disks create the characteristic noise effect which is not eliminated even by long braking at work of brake system.

Use only brake колодки, certified BMW. Otherwise the car admission to operation becomes invalid.

Features of management


In crude weather or at a strong rain expediently through everyone some kilometres to brake easy short pressing a pedal. Thus watch to creating problems to other participants of traffic. Warmth allocated at braking will dry up brake disks and колодки.

As it is known, optimum efficiency of braking is reached not at the blocked wheels, and at them качении on the verge of blocking. System ABS provides such mode automatically. At its refusal it is necessary to use whenever possible periodic braking (address to Section of Feature of driving of the car).

Movement on long or abrupt descents of mountain roads will not lead to loss of efficiency of brakes if to move on such transfer or at such position of the lever of selector AT at which the minimum of braking is required.

Switching on lowered (up to the first) transfer or transfer of the lever of selector AT up to position 1 or 2 it is possible to increase brake effect of the engine, besides.

If it it will appear insufficiently for car delay avoid long braking with intensity below average. Instead it is better (watching a situation behind) to brake the car vigorous pressing a pedal and if necessary to continue braking with short pauses (in a periodic mode). In brake breaks will be cooled that will protect them from an overheat and will allow to keep full brake capacity.

Never go with the squeezed out coupling, at neutral position of the lever of a gear change or selector AT lever, and furthermore with the switched off engine. On neutral transfer there is no brake effect of the engine, and at the switched off engine the amplifier of brakes does not operate.

To course of pedals of a brake, coupling and accelerator should not stir половички, a carpet covering of a floor or other subjects.
