Description

WHY THIS TRAINING MODULE?

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.

Learn the basics of disc brake service with this online training module. Learn to service brake calipers, both floating and fixed, and what you need to know about brake disc replacement.

 

The training module covers a wide variety of rear brake structures, such as; disc brakes with parking brake, disc brake with separate parking brake shoes and drum brakes. Additionally, the module also covers attending to the electric parking brake, so you can avoid possible dangerous situations and damage.

Learn about electric parking brake service and why it is important to activate the parking brake service mode when performing brake service on vehicle with EPB.

Disc brakes are becoming more common, but you still find drum brakes on vehicles. Learn how to assemble and disassemble drum brakes, how and when to replace brake shoes, and more with this online brake service training module.

 

After the wheel-specific brake service, the service is finished up by going more deeply  into changing the brake fluid, correct bleeding procedures and examples for controlling the  functionality.

 

Brake fluid change is something that is often overlooked, but a very important part of keeping the brakes working as they should. Learn how to change the brake fluid, and air the brakes correctly, with this online training module.

 

The training module also consists of assessments and practical tasks to challenge your knowledge of brake servicing. Brake service, as a whole, is a task that requires strong practical knowledge and a lot of experience. The best final assessment and test of your skills is to perform a lot of brake service jobs to gain more practical competence. In your work, you can utilise the inspection card found in the printable student material. To ensure a professional service experience is delivered, you can give the correctly filled inspection card to the customer.
