Brake inspection
Brake inspection
General points
t  Driving is performed on the test stand.
t  During the testing, the idling speed must be set on vehicles with manual gearbox and the driving position »N« must be engaged on vehicles with automatic gearbox.
t  During the testing, observe the instructions of the manufacturer for the test stand.
  Note
When the ignition is switched off, the brake control systems no longer operate.
Test, vehicles with front-wheel-drive
The brake inspection must be performed on a single axle roller type test stand.
The test speed must not exceed 6 km/h.
The test stands approved by Škoda comply with these conditions.
Test, four-wheel drive vehicles with the Haldex coupling
The brake inspection must be performed on a contra-rotative single axle roller type test stand for four-wheel drive vehicles.
Contra-rotative means: the test stand rollers of the brake test stand rotate forwards on the one side and backwards on the other side.
Thus, a transfer of the braking forces in the drive train is prevented.
The wheel which rotates forwards is measured each time during the test, this requires the need of two braking tests per axle.
The test speed must not exceed 6 km/h.
The test stands approved by Škoda comply with these conditions.
If a test stand is not available for four-wheel drive vehicles, the brake inspection can also be performed on a standard single axle roller type test stand as follows:
–  Drive the vehicle forwards onto the rollers.
–  Switch off engine and wait 2 seconds.
–  Perform brake inspection at the front.
–  Start engine and wait approx. 5 seconds until adequate vacuum has built up.
–  Drive vehicle forwards until the rear wheels are standing on the rollers.
–  Switch off engine and wait 2 seconds.
–  Perform brake inspection at the rear.
–  Start engine and wait approx. 5 seconds until adequate vacuum has built up.
