Inspection

The first step in any procedure is to determine the type of braking system the vehicle has. Most passenger vehicles have two types of brake systems installed. Disc brakes and drum brakes are the two types of braking systems installed on passenger vehicles.

Once you have determined what type of braking system you have, you need to pull the wheels off the vehicle so that you can gain access in order to properly measure the components that are required to be inspected.

Once you have removed the wheels, inspect the thickness of the brake pad linings. Most vehicles have a minimum specification of 2mm, so if you have more than 2mm on each pad, you should be in good shape.

Next we will check the thickness of the brake disc. The disc should have the minimum spec stamped on it. If you have a dial caliper measure the thickness and make sure it is above the minimum specification.

The run out of the brake disc needs to be checked. You will need a dial indicator perform this test. This test ensures that the brake disc is not warped. A common indicator of this problem is when the brakes are applied shaking from the front end can be felt.

A visual inspection of all brake components will be conducted to check if there is missing, broken, or damaged brake hardware. Additionally, we will check to ensure that all components installed meet manufacture specification and are DOT compliant.

The emergency brake will be checked to ensure that it is adjusted properly.

If the vehicle is equipped with ABS, check to ensure that the ABS light is not illuminated and that there are no active codes inhibiting the ABS brake system.

The vehicle will driven and the brakes will be applied to check the stopping distance of the vehicle.

The emergency brake light on the dash will be inspected to ensure it illuminates when the brake is applied.

The brake lamps must operate when the brake is applied and the 3rd brake light is required to be there if it was originally equipped with a 3rd brake lamp.
