The Disc Brake System Analyzer is the only tool that can identify an imploded brake hose and quickly diagnose a proportioning valve imbalance. If a customer complains of uneven brake wear and you assume it’s a bad caliper and replace it, you may be guessing.
Imploded brake hoses produce hidden symptoms not easily diagnosed. Once brake fluid is pushed past the restriction in a defective rubber brake line, it actuates the caliper, but when the brake pedal is released, the fluid is not allowed to return through the restriction and the brake caliper stays on. The Disc Brake System Analyzer can accurately detect exactly where the problem lies easily without breaking a line! It also allows the tech to saving time, energy, guess work and embarrassing come backs with the customer. It’s guaranteed for life!
Misdiagnosis of Brake Problem
Uneven brake wear can be misdiagnosed very easily because there are no tools to detect its hidden cause. Here is a very common scenario that shop owners face because of this. A tech hangs a set of calipers, rotors and pads on a job that comes in with the left side brake pads down to metal and the right side in good shape. He then test drives the vehicle and returns it to the customer.
Two weeks later, the customer comes back into the shop, and describes the same noise and problem. As soon as the tech pulls the car onto the lift and hears the metal scraping on the left side, he immediately knows what the problems is, but does not know why it’s happening again. At this point some techs will either call for a second set of parts hoping the first calipers were bad or maybe replace the proportioning valve, master cylinder or a brake hose. They might think there is a problem with the rear brakes. The Disc Brake System Analyzer can accurately and easily detect where the problem lies.
