Tips & Tricks

The item is under pressure due to a pre-tensioned spring. Before removal/installation, the cylinder‘s inner spring must be secured by unscrewing the spindle. The item can be removed/installed when in the released state and not under pressure. After installation, screw the spindle back in. During installation, pay attention to the mounting position of the item.

The vent hole on the front diaphragm brake cylinder must point downwards so that the condensation water can drain out. Remove any plastic plugs from the lower vent hole. Replace brake cylinders in axle pairs to achieve optimum braking performance. Perform a visual inspection and functional test under all operating conditions after each replacement.
