That is the new electronic device, the old clockwork devices are still around at 20 plus years of age, I wonder how long these new ones will last!

The new electronic ones are nowhere near as good as the old Tapley & block for wedging the office door open !

Hi Bob

 

If it has permanent 4 wheel drive it should NOT be tested in a roller brake tester. It needs a decelerometer (Tapley) road test.


Many thanks Stealth, I did spend sometime looking over the testers manual on line but every answer but that one, is the tapley an electronic gizmo now or the same heavy metal gauge it was 20 years ago ?
....again many thanks Bob :)

Hi guys, had a question posted on the Rav4 Drivers Club, concerning having the brakes tested in the rollers or out on the road with a taply.
I was a tested years ago but the rav4 was too new then ! I would like to give the guys a correct answer.
Vehicle is a 2004 automatic rav4, which is permanent four wheel drive,
Hope you can advise please
Bob.
