Air Brake Repair FAQs

What causes air brake failure?

There are many causes of air brake failure. The most common cause is an imbalance in the braking system that puts more force on one brake than the others. Brake overheating is another problem that can lead to failure. Brakes typically overheat due to poor technique in situations that require high brake load, like going downhill.

Faulty or misconfigured suspension can also create a brake imbalance and a reduction in braking smoothness. Overloaded trailers are another big factor, and even the freshest brakes cannot stop an overloaded trailer. Being negligent with brake hoses and missing chafing or kinking in the braking system can also cause failure.

How much does an air brake system cost?

If you are looking to install an entire air brake system, it will cost significantly more than a conventional hydraulic brake system. On average, it will cost $2,000 more than a conventional system, for a complete cost of about $3,000.

How do you service air brakes?

Air brakes are serviced in a similar way to hydraulic brakes, and the pads are changed in much the same way on both systems. The air brake system will require more attention to other components to ensure the whole system is operating properly.

All air valves are checked for function and failure, and the lining of the brakes is checked for dirt and debris. The push rod operation is checked, as are the slack adjusters. Broken or missing parts are replaced.
