General Description

Brakes Construction

S5JB0E4101001

When the foot brake pedal is depressed, hydraulic pressure is developed in the master cylinder (2) to actuate pistons 
(two in front and four in rear).
The master cylinder is a tandem master cylinder. Brake pipes are connected to the master cylinder and they make two 
independent circuits. One connects front right and rear left brakes and the other connects front left and rear right 
brakes.
In this brake system, the disc brake type is used for the front wheel brake and a drum brake type (leading / trailing 
shoes) for the rear brake.
The parking brake system is mechanical. It applies brake force to only rear wheels by means of the cable and 
mechanical linkage system. The same brake shoes are used for both parking and foot brakes.

NOTE
The difference between RH steering vehicle and LH steering vehicle is the location of the brake master 
and the brake booster only.

Diagnostic Information and Procedures

Brakes Symptom Diagnosis

S5JB0E4104002

Condition

Possible cause

Correction / Reference Item

Not enough braking force Brake fluid leakage from brake lines

Locate leaking point and repair.

Brake disc or pads stained with fluid

Clean or replace.

Overheated brakes

Determine cause and repair.

Poor contact of shoes on brake drum

Repair for proper contact.

Brake shoes linings stained with fluid or 
wet with water

Replace.

Badly worn brake shoe linings

Replace.

Defective wheel cylinders

Repair or replace.

Malfunctioning caliper assembly

Repair or replace.

Air in system

Bleed system.

Malfunctioning ABS (ESP

®), if equipped Check system and replace as necessary.

Brake pull 
(Brakes not working in 
unison)

Pad or shoe linings are wet with water or 
stained with fluid in some brakes

Replace.

Drum-to-shoe clearance out of 
adjustment in some brakes. 
(malfunctioning auto adjusting 
mechanism)

Check for inoperative auto adjusting 
mechanism.

Drum is out of round in some brakes

Replace.

Wheel tires are inflated unequally

Inflate equally.

Malfunctioning wheel cylinders

Repair or replace.

Disturbed front end alignment

Adjust as prescribed.

Unmatched tires on same axle

Tires with approximately the same amount of 
tread should be used on the same axle.

Restricted brake pipes or hoses

Check for soft hoses and damaged lines. 
Replace with new hoses and new brake piping.

Malfunctioning caliper assembly

Check for stuck or sluggish pistons and proper 
lubrication of caliper slide bush.

Loose suspension parts

Caliper should slide. Check all suspension 
mountings.

Loose calipers

Check and torque bolts to specifications.

Brake locked
(For vehicles equipped 
with ABS (ESP

®

))
