Braking system
Braking system


The braking system is of hydraulic, dual circuit type with discs at the front and drum or discs at the rear. The hydraulic circuit is split diagonally so that with the failure of one circuit, one front and one rear brake remain operative.

A load-sensitive pressure regulator is incorporated in the rear hydraulic circuits on some models to prevent the rear wheels locking in advance of the front wheels during heavy application of the brakes. The regulator proportions the hydraulic pressure between the front and rear brakes according to the load being carried and is located on the under-body, in front of the left-hand rear wheel.
