ZF TRW Brake Technology and Diagnostics

The basic braking foundation will be presented. The concepts of brake boosters, master brake cylinders, brake pads, calipers, rotors, and drums are introduced alongside common diagnostic methods. Essential understanding of brake noise starts with identification. The ability to classify the source will allow for determination of the appropriate solution.

The basic operation of electrical park brake systems is introduced. Different versions of these systems are explained. Training is focused on how to electrically release the park brake sys¬tem, and the steps to take if mechanical release is needed.

After completing this training, the participant will be able to:

  • List braking components and their functions
  • Describe common brake pads installation errors
  • Explain electrical park brake systems
  • Describe proper mechanical release of electrical brake system
  • List braking components and their functions
  • Explain assistance based emergency braking
  • Identify noise issues
  • Diagnose brake systems and errors
