BRAKE PEDAL ON-VEHICLE INSPECTION

1. CHECK PEDAL HEIGHT

Pedal height from asphalt sheet: 139.8-149.8 mm (5.504-5.898 in.)

If the pedal height is incorrect, adjust it.

IF NECESSARY, ADJUST PEDAL HEiGHT

Remove the lower No. 1 panel and finish panel. Disconnect the connector from the stop light switch. Loosen the stop light switch lock nut and remove the stop light switch.

Loosen the clevis lock nut.

Adjust the pedal height by turning the pedal push rod.

Tighten the clevis lock nut.

Install the stop light switch.

Connect the connect or to the stop light switch.

Push the brake pedal in 5 - 15 mm (0.20 - 0.59 in.), turn the stop light switch to lock the nut in the position where the stop light goes off.

Push the brake pedal in 5-15 mm (0.20-0.59 in.), check that stop light lights up.

3. CHECK PEDAL FREEPLAY

(a) Stop the engine and depress the brake pedal several times until there is no more vacuum left in the booster.

(b) Push in the pedai until the beginning of the resistance is felt. Measure the distance, as shown.

Pedal freeplay: 1 - 6 mm (0.04 - 0.24 in.) if incorrect, check the stop light switch clearance. If the clearance is OK, then troubleshoot the brake system. Stop light switch clearance: 0.5 - 2.4 mm (0.020 - 0.094 in.)

4. CHECK PEDAL RESERVE DISTANCE Release the parking brake lever.

With engine running, depress the pedal and measure the pedal reserve distance, as shown.

Pedai reserve distance from asphalt sheet at 490 N (50 kgf, 110.2 Ibf): More than 85 mm (3.35 in.)
