TV mechanic Edd China appears in Textar videos

The brake lining specialist TMD Friction, together with the well-known TV mechanic Edd China, have produced a series of best practice videos for the premium brand Textar.

The videos, which will outline a variety of brake-related processes, have been developed as training aids for mechanics to help support the independent garage trade. They will also provide those working on vehicles with immediate access to trouble-shooting content.

The guides will focus on the brake replacement process, how to work on a vehicle with an electronic parking brake and the importance of checking brake fluid. One of the videos will also cover Textar’s latest innovation, the Q+ Shim, and how its unique characteristics help to dampen brake noise.

Scott Irwin, technical manager at TMD Friction, said: “Working with Edd to produce the training resources was an absolute pleasure. Not only did he bring his natural charm and energy to the set, we have produced a selection of videos that are informative, engaging and easy to follow. We look forward to launching them to the industry this autumn. As a company, we are fully committed to supporting the independent garage network, which is moving towards using more online resources. We’re focused on producing material that helps mechanics to do their jobs quicker and more efficiently, while improving working practices to help keep them in business.”

With technology in the automotive sector constantly evolving, TMD’s investment into the best practice videos shows a shift towards online content, and how this can be used within the industry.

TMD Friction has built a strong reputation worldwide as a leading manufacturer that doesn’t just follow standards, but in most cases sets them for the industry.
