    • Deterioration limit: 222 mm (8.74 inches)

  5. Grind all lungs заcечки. Deep or extensive notches will cause superfluous deterioration of a brake overlay, therefore it will be necessary to cover a brake surface of a drum again. If brake overlays are a little worn out also a drum has grooves, it is necessary to polish a drum with a thin emery paper, but not to overturn.

When the drum is removed, examine, whether there is no leak of a brake liquid in the wheel cylinder. Eliminate leaks if they are.
