Professional brake bleeding thanks to RP-TOOLS
Brake bleeding is a maintenance work which is necessary at regular intervals. Air in the brake system can occur in many different ways. In addition to repairing or modifying individual components of the brake system, the brake fluid can also increase the air content in the brake system. This is usually the case when the brake fluid is no longer in good condition and needs to be changed. This is where brake fluid testers help with the inspection.
Caution: As the brake fluid is a highly toxic mass, brake bleeding should only be carried out by qualified personnel! The fluid is also corrosive and can, among other things, seriously damage the paintwork of the vehicle. In addition, the brake fluid poses a great danger to people and the environment and can lead to skin burns and environmental damage. Proper handling and disposal is therefore essential.
Recognizing and eliminating faults
Too much air in the braking system has a direct negative effect on the serviceability of a motor vehicle. If the air content is too high, the pressure of the brake pedal can no longer provide the required braking of the vehicle. In this case the vehicle becomes unsafe and a danger to the rest of the road traffic. In some vehicles, too much air in the brake system not only reduces the braking power, but can also lead to complete failure of the brakes. This is especially the case with large air bubbles in the brake system, as the hydraulic pressure that triggers the brakes is no longer available.
The first signs of air in the brake hoses can be softening brakes, for example. This means that the brake pedal gives way more easily than usual. In order to be able to guarantee the safety of a vehicle in the long term, regular inspection and maintenance of the brakes is one of the most important tasks of workshops. If necessary, the brake fluid should be changed and the brakes bled.
