The brakes are arguably one of the most important safety features of your car. When your breaks fail, your entire car fails. To avoid brake failure, it’s important that your brakes are installed and repaired correctly. As a mechanic, there are a few tips that you should be aware of when changing brakes. To start, you have to work with your car.
If you work against it, you’ll have a hard time during the brake repair. Also, don’t forget to grease your guide pins on the bottom and the top. It will make your life a lot easier.
Don’t put unnecessary pressure on your brake line by letting your brake hang in thin air. It can damage your brake line and then you’ll be back at square one. Clean as much of the system as you can. Take care of any rust so the brakes sit evenly. You don’t want them to experience uneven wear and tear.
While you’re working on your brakes, make sure to take your time. The safety of your car is more important than your time. One mistake while installing breaks could cause a massive accident that could have been avoided if you paid more attention to detail.
