Brake Lathe Safety Read More

Learn the steps necessary to properly machine rotors and drums in this eLearning course. Focus is on eliminating brake noise problems after the brake job, as well as proper lathe settings and lathe maintenance. Correct set up of the on-car lathe is demonstrated to eliminate the apprehension many technicians have of using this equipment. This course targets both the entry level brake technician as well as the experienced brake technician. Students who take this course will have an opportunity to view brake rotor and brake drum inspection and the machining process.   Read More

This eLearning course reviews the operation of the brake hydraulic system and the correct way to bleed air from the system during service. Advantages of using gravity bleeding, pedal pressure bleeding, and vacuum bleeding procedures are explained and compared. Identifying when to use the scan tool to activate the ABS pump motor and solenoids during the bleeding process is explained. Learning checks are used to reinforce the procedures discussed. Read More

Clinic Length: Approx. 3 hours This clinic is designed to enhance the technician’s ability to perform proper brake service procedures on today’s vehicles utilizing Electronic Brake Control (EBC) systems. We discuss several Active Safety Systems and the operational strategies used on many new vehicles. Included in this technical seminar is an overview of stability control operation and the modern advancements within this safety technology. Newly mandated braking controls and the impact on vehicle braking performance are reviewed. Special service procedures on the base brake system are outlined. Brake by wire and automatic stop system control inputs and outputs are discussed. Yaw, lateral, accelerometer, wheel speed, active brake booster and brake pressure sensor testing procedures are outlined.   After completing this seminar, the student will have the knowledge to: Properly service today’s automotive brake systems Diagnose Brake and Stability Control System warning lights Discuss base brake service issues that relate to braking performance issues Properly inspect, test and calibrate components within the electronic controlled brake system Evaluate scan tool data and fault codes through vehicle Case Study examples< Read More
