- Do not drive on untested brakes, brakes must be tested after installation or maintenance.

The minimum test procedure is as follows.

- Make sure pedal is firm: hold firm pressure on pedal for several minutes, it should remain in position without sinking. If the pedal sinks toward the floor, check system for fluid leaks. Do not drive a vehicle if the pedal does not stay firm or can be pushed to the floor with normal pressure.

- At very low speed (2-5 mph) apply brakes hard several times while turning steering from full left to full right, repeat several times. Remove the wheels and check that components are not touching, rubbing, or leaking.

- Carefully examine all brake components, brake lines, and fittings for leaks and interference.

- Make sure there is no interference with wheels or suspension components.

- Drive the vehicle at low speed (15-20 mph) making moderate and hard stops. brakes should feel normal and positive. Again, check for leaks and interference.

- Always test vehicles in a safe place where there is no danger to (or from) other people or vehicles.

- Always wear seat belts and make use of all safety equipment.
