Description

WHY THIS COURSE?

Brake service is an essential part of the work required on a vehicle, especially for mechanics. Brake component wear needs to be checked regularly, you assess the condition, and perform the service or replacement of the parts. Brake service is part of the basic skills for a mechanic, both at work and in training.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

You begin learning about brake servicing by familiarising yourself with  typical structures and components. You learn the names of components which comes in handy e.g. when ordering parts.

When the structures are familiar you go on to assessing the service requirements. You find out how inspections are done during test-use and while lifted on the vehicle ramp. When you put these skills into practice, you notice how difficult doing  a complete assessment of the service need is without disassembling the structures.

In the study about Front Brake Service, the service procedure is gone through step-by-step. With the help of pictures and examples you will learn more about different structures, and the disassembly of brake structures.
