ACOFAS and Meritor to conduct Technician Education Brake Clinic – FULL

This clinic is full. Registration is closed.


When you align the front end of trucks built from 2011 until present, are you sure you are sending them back on the road with the brakes functioning properly? When you replace or rebush front springs, are you having an effect on the ABS brakes? Are you and your technicians knowledgeable about the sensors, sensor locations and appearances, and how to assure they are functioning properly? If not, are you and your technicians knowledgeable about how to diagnose these sensors? When you install or sell brake shoes for a 2011 and newer truck, are you using the proper brakes shoes? Are you making sure when working on brakes they meet DOT requirements? If you aren’t sure of the answers, you better check your Liability Insurance policy.

ACOFAS, in conjunction with Meritor, is conducting an education clinic at the Meritor Training Facility in Troy, Michigan on September 29th, 2016. The clinic will focus on basic air brakes, automatic slacks, reduced stopping distance (RSD) brakes, Electronic Stability Control, the On-Guard™ Collision Safety System, and the Lane Departure Warning System.
