Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Brake test

General information
The drive is provided by the test rig.
For the test, ensure for vehicles with a manual gearbox that the gear lever is in neutral, and for vehicles with an automatic gearbox that the selector lever is in »N«.
When conducting the test, observe the specifications provided by the manufacturer of the test rig.
  Note
The brake regulation systems do not function when ignition is off.
   
Checking vehicles with front-wheel drive
The brake test must be carried out on a single-axle roller dynamometer.
The maximum test speed must not exceed 6 km/h.
The test rigs authorised by Volkswagen fulfil these requirements.
