Meritor Quadraulic Brakes Are Starting To Have Problems
Just something else to check!
I recently atttended a hydraulic brake training class taught by a Meritor Tech. He did give us a Bulletin TP- 10134 issued on 08-10 which is attached. There is a problem with the heads of the bridge bolts popping off. This is not a recall and it is something that does not have to replaced unless any one of the bolt heads have popped off. The bridge bolts are the 4 allen bolts on each caliber. All you would have do is visual inspection of the bolt heads. I would just call this part of your PM inspection. The fronts are easy to see and the backs, you would have to feel the bolt heads. In my opinion, I don't think this should be big problem for motor homes with low miles as compared to like school buses and commericial vehicles. I would just say to inspect it regularly and to replace the bolts right away if one bolt head breaks off, because if two break off the same side, then you have replace the caliper. The tech did say even though the bulletin says you must remove the caliper to replace the bolts, they can be replaced on the vehicle. The fronts could replaced on the vehicle, but not the rears.
