Bremsen vorn VW Käfer mit Männerlochkreis 5x205
hello and welcome to the old school monkeys today it's all about replacing the beetle brakes on the front end and bolts its a little different than with the four holes we're going to do five holes and bolts and start by bolting on the wheels yeah , and then we continue to pull on the brake drum here, you can see the front driver's side where the perm clips on there, we first pull on the speedometer cable cotter pin bolt, depending on that, we loosen the dust cap, so be a little careful there. there's still the speedometer cable in there what you do to loosen it back then isn't done with a locking screw like on newer Beetles but here there are still safety glasses and lock nuts so the first thing you should to do is loosen the lock.
Then the motor loosens and loosens the lock nuts so the lock plate is down, read the second word below, we got it, then we look at the washer with the circlip on it too. Now we can get the brakes off so I put the brake shoes back on so I can just get the brake drum down kids before that I always do it on the fly because sometimes it works without being able to get the brake drum down like that but be careful. that the storage goes down so now we're going to clean off some grease first of all more or less so we can fuck it all up so now we're going to loosen this lock and this lock for the brakes that go attached to the others brake anchor blades I always use two pliers it is the fastest way the easiest way I do it since there are also special tools for this but no suddenly it did not work but without the brake shoes I unhook because I have experience with pliers the output easier and simpler and then we take them as is if it's scrap bees so now I'm already one a little further now I've cleaned the brake anchor plates without wheel brake cylinder it's already attached so we're going to grease here very later the adjusting screws for the brake anchor plates now we will first take a look at the wheel brake cylinder of course you have to do it beforehand as i said so Next thing I needed to do was the bolts for the brake adjusters.
I always use some special grease that is resistant to heat. It always slides and can be lubricated. It is available in white as ceramic paste. I take it here in black mixed with kaffin. It's always better actually, but you can take it however you want, so if you then used them, there were the brake shoes and you put them on. I ordered a whole new assembly kit for the brake shoes. I just prefer it when I redo the brakes it lifts the spring and it's all new to me it's easier and more reassuring so now I put the bolt in the back and the brake to anchor the brake shoe to the plate brake anchor and there nn I have a hammer here with the rubber handle, so I press the spring with the retaining plate in the front, I tighten the bolt in the back, sometimes in the front too, depending on how work better.
Zack something broke here a little bit, but it was okay. it's held up the same we'll do it before but the brakes are still on I always do it with the pliers like it's built up Zack hangs back up but it's all good yeah it's ok nothing so nice to hold on and then click so the bolt is there in the bottom so you can see the retaining spring that holds the brake and brake shoe together then we put the brake drum in place with the wheel bearings but now it's important to grease very well not because the other one already it's out we clean it up a bit we clean it so there's a lot of grease put it back on the bearings are greased then it's on to reinsert the bearing properly and put the washer back in with the groove yeah you can see so nice when it comes apart it's actually a symbol and at that point the nut is put back on careful there are right and left threads yes driver side passenger side different threads so po r please don't mix the nut like this later, but the ones that have been mis-tightened we start to adjust these bearings are further as said The roller bearings we have to adjust them a bit they should not be too tight they should not be too loose I always adjust them like this First I tighten your little ones loose again then I try my cabinet here how can you like it a lot or how easy it is I always move the washer so you can move it to Karlsruhe man if you then have the lock plate tighten the locknut on it ok , you can check again after tightening ,sometimes a bit crazy but rarely happens ,everything is ok in my opinion ,been doing it for years and it works So write lock plate clamp again then we put the dust cap back on but before that the dust booth was nice and fat so here's one of the problems the speedometer cable is still coming but you know everything needs to be done. sita threading then the speedometer cable i do before securing before clamping the cable if it comes a cotter pin i would not screw it in depending on some if the cable doesn't or with the newer ones it has some nonsense like a circlip on it there are different variants here with my old ones it is also with the bolt or with the Splint well then we fix everything so that nothing happens and the cap, as I told you, just put your hand on it very slightly, so now we fix it well and we start to think, it is tight it's still too tight it comes off and a lot of Work so empty slide it try to get it to spin freely beautifully so I'm actually cleaning the brake drum now then we'll set it up the brakes then put the shoes back on in the drum so that the brake already works in the internal rotation so that it is well tightened and the other one that is again very easy turns well so I always put them up and down until Because the fixed drum brake loosens again after it can be turned very easily without making noise, that's how I do it with the top brake with the bottom brake on the excavator.
Well, if we clean it, you'll have a look again with brakes. already a little imitated and now we take or I continue to use a little thermal spray just so that the brake drum remains a little in order the first years have been like this for many years and in fact I have had good experiences with them, well, that's all I think we'll see you later bye bye
