About the resource
Usually, the owners speak of a figure of 40 thousandkilometers. By this time brake pad front "GAZelle Next" and "Business" are being worn out. But also note that the native "Gorky" pads are nursed only 25 thousand.The main signs of faulty padsis their creaking. But it must be noted that it can appear on new overlays. As a rule, these are substandard analogs filled with asbestos. They not only creak, but also brake and heat very badly. The next factor is the increased pedal stroke. Along with this, the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir (as the working cylinder needs a larger stroke for compression) can decrease.
Well, the most proven method is visual diagnostics. Having removed a wheel, it is necessary to examine a frictional overlay. If its thickness to the metal is less than three millimeters, the element must be replaced urgently.
Prices and manufacturers
If we talk about models 2705 and 3302 (includingand "Business"), the cheapest is the set of pads "Premium". For 4 overlays ask about 700 rubles. But, as the reviews say, this is not the best option for replacement (although the manufacturer is OAO GAZ). The plates quickly wear out.

In order for the liquid to leave the cylinder easier, it is possible to open the bleed valve by first putting a silicone or rubber hose of the appropriate diameter onto it. As soon as the working piston of the support has gone into the cylinder, the valve must be closed. Next, put new shoes and put the brace in place. At installation it is necessary to check up correctness of an arrangement of springs of brake колодок. The bolt of fastening of fingers twists with the moment in 33-38 Nanometers. To do this, use a torque wrench.
