2. Using a caliper, measure thickness of a brake shoe.
Minimum admissible thickness of a brake shoe together with the bearing plate of 7 mm.
3. If the overlay of a brake shoe is worn-out to the minimum thickness, it is necessary to replace all four brake shoes as a set.
4. Establish wheels and lower the car.
