BMW / Audi / Land Rover / Jaguar 6HP Automatic Transmission - Atlanta, 4/18
Registration Unavailable

BMW / Audi / Land Rover / Jaguar 6HP Automatic Transmission - Atlanta, 4/18

$99

with Dirk Fuchs

German precision and technology by ZF in BMW. This transmission technology was also widely used in Audi, Land Rover, Jaguar, Ford and GM applications. This class will cover the 6 speed transmission for BMW and will start with the fundamental facts about a torque converter. The torque converter is the biggest heat source in an automatic transmission and the participant will learn about common failures and diagnostics.

During the class, the participant will gain full working knowledge of the BMW 6 Speed transmission while topics like torque flow and shifting elements are covered. Also reviewed in this class are the different applications of brakes and clutches in the mechatronic. This will transition into the function of the pressure regulator and solenoid. 

The greatest take away from the seminar is the understanding of how the transmission shifts and how to read the specific shifting matrix. Learn hands-on with the actual 6 speed shifting matrix.

Transmissions are intricate machines,so there’s even more to learn in order to have an understanding on diagnostics.The attendee will also have a chance to learn what a transmission adaptation is and how to read and interpret the different values with a diagnostic tool on a live BMW Vehicle. Additional topics covered are the Limp Home function, coding issues, internal shift and external transmission. 

The presented knowledge allows the participant to quickly diagnose common errors. Transmission flashing will be taught at the vehicle as well and the participants will perform an oil change as well how to service the mechatronic.

Common Failures, problems and how to rebuild the ZF 6HP Transmission will be taught at a Transmission and every participant has the chance for hands on interaction.

Time: 8 hours

After completing this training, the participant will be able to:

•      List internal components of the BMW 6 Speed transmission

•      Describe the function of the torque converter and lock up clutch

•      Describe differences between pressure regulators and solenoids

•      Explain the shifting strategy of the BMW 6 Speed transmission

•      Analyze transmission adaptation values

•      Explain an oil change service procedure

•      Explain how to properly check the oil in the transmission

•      Describe the common failure of the BMW 6 Speed transmission

•      Describe the rebuild process of an 6HP

VW Chassis Diagnostic - Atlanta, 4/19

VW Chassis Diagnostic - Atlanta, 4/19

$99

with Dirk Fuchs

ZF chassis systems are present in every second car on our planet. This shows the large OE business what TRW and Lemfoerder is representing. In this class you will learn a deep inside in Volkswagen chassis technology.

The class we starting with the foundations of chassis dynamics and with different axle systems like McPherson and Multi-link suspension systems.

The participant will understand why the count of control arms is increasing in today’s vehicles and why ZF/Volkswagen designed, low friction ball joint generation is so important for servicing current vehicles.

Electro-mechanical steering systems was the first step to autonomous driving and Volkswagen vehicles are equipped with this system since the beginning of this century. The participant will learn live on a Volkswagen how to diagnose those new steering systems. The participant will learn the influence of suspension problems which are producing fault codes in the EPS.

Replacing, servicing and diagnostic of this system will be taught as well.

Volkswagen’s driver assistance functions is in today’s vehicles more and more present and vehicles starting to see, think and act. The attendee will learn how to identify this systems and how assistance systems have an influence on the steering and brake system. At the end, the participant will learn how to perform basic settings on Radar systems and Camera systems.

This class will be a strong mix of developing theoretical knowledge as well practical approach at the vehicle

Time: 8 hours

After completing this training, the participant will be able to:

•      Describe components within the suspension system

•      Explain different chassis angles and angle settings

•      Describe Kamm’s circle

•      Differentiate between popular chassis systems

•      Describe multi-link suspension system

•      Explain toe in curve and proper settings of the toe in curve

•      Identify electric steering systems

•      Describe common failures related to the suspension in steering systems

•      Identify proper wheel alignment

•      The ability to diagnose hydraulic steering errors

•      The capability of maintaining the hydraulic steering system

•      Qualifications to implement the electro-mechanical steering rack

•      Exposure to active steering systems

•      Identify different driver assist functions and their operations

•      Describe functions and impacts of radar and camera systems

•      Show basic settings of radar and camera systems

Both classes will be ASE Certified and the participants will get continues education units (CEU’s) after completing the class and passing the end of class test.
