Almost anything you ever wanted to know about brake systems is covered in this newly revised two-book set. The Classroom Manual details the theories and application of the total brake system as well as the various sub-systems and components. The corresponding Shop Manual matches the Classroom Manual chapter for chapter and provides real-world symptoms, diagnostics, and repair for the brake system, sub-systems, and components, including maintenance instructions and advice on whether repair or replacement should occur. Each chapter lists the ASE task associated with the inspection, test, and repair or replacement procedure being discussed to help prepare users for the ASE certification exam. In addition, all job sheets in the shop manual are directly correlated to the appropriate NATEF and ASE tasks. Together the Classroom and Shop Manuals offer the information needed to diagnose and repair most problems that could occur with today's brake systems.
