Rear solid axles never went away, they evolved. New bearing designs, wheel speed sensors and advanced limited-slip, air locker differentials have added new wrinkles to the repair process. Servicing these axles represents a significant opportunity for shops.
In a 45-minute webinar, experts from BCA Bearings will cover what it takes to service a rear axle’s bearings and how to increase your productivity when doing these jobs.
Having a way to route clean compressed air where you need it is critical to a well-functioning shop. A quality compressed air system can extend the life of your air compressor and air tools and make your shop a safer place to work. That improves productivity and your bottom line.
If you don’t have a compressed air system or it’s time to upgrade the one you have, this webinar will walk you through everything you need to know.
• An overview of the current pipe options for compressed air systems
• Key components to look for when shopping for a new compressed air system
• Tips and required tools for installation
• How to maintain and expand your compressed air system
It’s a no-brainer—use the proper tools to do a job and you’ll get it done faster, better, and safer. For example, you wouldn’t use wood blocks or other improper items to hoist a transmission or axle assembly into place. You would use the right jack or jack stand for the task.
This webinar will cover the use of specialized jacks and jack stands including transmission jacks, portable truck and lift jacks, and under-hoist stands. We’ll also cover proper operation, safety precautions, and maintenance.
TPMS service is a simple process that, unfortunately, can easily become overcomplicated. What is the difference between various TPMS sensors on the market? How do you choose the best sensor-type for your business? How do you service TPMS properly and efficiently? Which programming tools should you use? What is the difference between programming and relearning? So many questions, right?!
Schrader's Technical Training Team Lead and TIA-Certified Instructor, Yanick Leduc, will guide the audience through the most important best practices concerning TPMS service and answer any specific questions through a live Q&A.
The oil landscape is changing for shops, as the pandemic has changed travel patterns and caused consumer spending on regular vehicle maintenance to fluctuate. On top of that, the new GF-6 oil specifications -- which went into place earlier this year -- are causing shops to question what kind of oil they need to keep in stock. You need to find the right balance between giving your customers the service and choice they expect, while still protecting your own bottom line.
How can your shop reduce inventory, boost shop space, and ultimately boost profits? In this webinar, you will learn how one small addition to your shop shelves can give your customers more choice while reducing the SKUs you have to carry.
When a wheel bearing makes noise on a late-model Ford Escape, Toyota Camry or VW Golf, do you wish you could ignore the noise? One of the most labor-intensive wheel bearings to replace is a Gen 1 cartridge-style bearing that is pressed into the knuckle. These types of bearings can be found on cars and SUVs from both domestic and import nameplate manufacturers. For most applications, there are no short cuts or "miracle" tools. During this free webinar we will look at ways to become more efficient and profitable when replacing Gen 1 cartridge-style wheel bearings.
In this live training session, we show how to use a scope for quick diagnostics of sensors under the hood of the vehicle. With this knowledge, you will be able to come to a diagnosis faster with less time-consuming disassembly. ASE-certified technician Andrew Markel demystifies the scope, and what it can do for a technician when they have to make the diagnostic call.
- How can a current clamp be used to test compression?
- What probes can be used to determine if there is spark and fuel?
- How do I connect to a circuit to cause the least amount of damage?
- What are the procedures for capturing a camshaft and crankshaft position sensor waveform?
- What should you look for when purchasing a scope?
- Why don’t my waveforms look like those I see online?
Engine technology and belts have changed and are constantly changing. If students aren't aware of proper belt installation, inspection and diagnostic procedures, the belt (and the components that the belt drives) could fail prematurely. In this 30-minute educational webinar, students and technicians will learn what has changed and what will change in the future with belts. Also, they will leave with practical skills that they can apply today.
Wheel bearings are an essential component of the chassis system. As a technician, you need to know about how a wheel bearing works and the different designs of wheel bearings. You should also know about seals -- including how to choose the right seal, and understanding why seals fail. In this free 30-minute training webinar, ASE-certified technician Roger Gillette will educate you and your team on bearing clearance and bearing play is, the benefits of an orbitally formed shoulder, choosing the right seal for an application, and much more.
This free webinar will prepare students to service Gasoline Direct Injection systems and components. Attendees will benefit by improving their diagnostic and repair efficiency. After attending this class, students and technicians will be able to identify GDI system components, follow proper safety procedures, and replace GDI system components -- including the high-pressure pump, fuel injectors, and related components.
