Brake pedal free play 1~8 mm

Clutch pedal Depress the pedal by hand until clutch resistance is felt and measure the distance. Clutch pedal free play 6~12 mm

If the free play does not satisfy the specification, check the system or linkage and adjust.

7. OPERATION OF WINDSHIELD WIPER AND WASHER FOR PATTERN, SPEED, AND PARKING POSITION (INCLUDES AIM WASHER IF NECESSARY)
Check the operation of the windshield wiper and washer, and adjust washer aim as necessary. See "17. Wiper and washer operation" in section 3. Windshield wiper With the key "ON", turn the wiper switch upwards step by step. NOTE: Do not operate the wipers when the windshield is dry. Washer To spray washer fluid on the windshield, pull the lever towards the steering wheel with the ignition on. When you pull the lever for less than about 0.6 seconds, the washer fluid is sprayed onto the windshield, but the windowshield wipers are not operated. When you pull the lever for more than about 0.6 seconds, the washer fluid is sprayed onto the windshield while you pull the lever and then the windshield wipers are operate for several cycles. When the lever is released, wipers automatically should return to the rest position. Washer aim adjustment Insert a straight pin into the washer nozzle spray outlet and adjust the nozzle location as necessary.

13. STEERING (WHEEL CENTER POSITION AND HANDLING)
Check that the steering wheel is centered. The steering wheel should be centered when the vehicle is traveling in a straight line on a flat road surface.

14. BRAKES (INCLUDES PARKING BRAKE AND WARNING LIGHT)
Check the operation of brakes. Brake system testing Brake should be tested on a dry, clean, reasonably smooth and level roadway. Press the brake pedal, and check for the efficiency of brakes. If the pedal gradually falls away with the constant pressure, the hydraulic system may be leaking. Perform a visual check to confirm any suspected leak after stopping the vehicle. If adopted ABS, check for the indicator operation. * If the EBCM(Electronic Brake Control Module) detects a problem with the system, the ABS warning lamp will either flash continuously to alert the driver of the problem. Service and parking brake operation. Check the stroke of the parking brake by counting the number of notch clicks heard while fully applying it from the released position. Limit Allowablewith a force of approx. 20kgf. 6~9 notches The vehicle should brake in a straight line. Park the vehicle on an incline and set the parking brake. The vehicle should remain in position. Check the brake system warning light Brake warning light comes on when the parking brake is applied with the ignition on and goes out when the parking brake is released. If this warning light comes on even when the parking brake is completely released, it may indicate that the brake fluid in the reservoir is low. ABS warning light comes on when the ignition is switched on and should go out after about 3 seconds. If the brake system warning light and ABS warning light illuminate at the same time while driving, it may indicate a failure in the base brake system due to the malfunction.
