Brake system

Level of brake fluid

The alarm lamp of hydraulic system burns: level of brake fluid fell in the tank below norm (address the Section Check of Levels of Liquids).

If the level of brake fluid fell in the tank below norm, and the pedal course considerably increased, then, perhaps, one of two contours of the hydraulic brake system is faulty.

Address the Head's materials the Brake system and follow on the next HUNDRED BMWs. At the movement, perhaps, it will be required to make bigger effort for a brake pedal, and the brake way can increase. Consider it, choosing a driving manner.


Brake shoes

The alarm lamp of brake shoes burns: blocks almost wore out. Address the Head's materials the Brake system and at the first opportunity follow on HUNDRED for their replacement.

For replacement it is necessary to use only brake shoes allowed by BMW.


Hydraulic booster of steering

At the heavy course of steering it is necessary to check oil level according to instructions in the Section Check of Levels of Liquids.

If difficulties arise in attempt of bystry turn of a steering wheel, address the Section Diagnostics of Malfunctions and follow for check on HUNDRED BMWs.

At failure of the hydraulic booster the effort necessary for turn of a steering wheel increases.
