Drum Brakes -> Type 4 -> Precautions
Vehicle: 1992 Buick Century Custom 2.5 L4 GAS

When working on or around brake assemblies, care must be taken to prevent breathing asbestos dust, as many manufacturers incorporate asbestos fibers in the production of brake linings. During routine service operations the amount of asbestos dust from brake lining wear is at a low level due to a chemical breakdown during use, and a few precautions will minimize exposure.

  • Do not sand or grind brake linings unless suitable local exhaust ventilation equipment is used to prevent excessive asbestos exposure.
  • Wear a suitable respirator approved for asbestos dust use during all repair proced...

If a scan tool is not available, bleed the front brakes to ensure that a firm brake pedal exists, then carefully drive vehicle over 4 mph to cause the ABS to initialize itself. This will return the rear displacement cylinder to the top position. The entire brake system should now be rebled.
