Why this 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.
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.
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.
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.
