PRECAUTIONS

PRECAUTIONS PFP:00001

Precautions for Brake System EES000HW

Recommended fluid is brake fluid DOT 3.


Never reuse drained brake fluid.
Be careful not to splash brake fluid on painted areas.
To clean or wash all parts of master cylinder, disc brake caliper
and wheel cylinder, use clean brake fluid.
Never use mineral oils such as gasoline or kerosene. They will
ruin rubber parts of the hydraulic system.
Use flare nut wrench when removing and installing brake tube.
Always torque brake lines when installing.
SBR686C
Burnish the brake contact surfaces after refinishing or replacing
drums or rotors, after replacing pads or linings, or if a soft pedal
occurs at very low mileage. Refer to BR-9, "Bleeding Brake System" -
WARNING:
Clean brake pads and shoes with a waste cloth, then wipe with a dust collector.
