4. How to Replace Slack Adjusters on an Air Brake System

A pretty easy slack adjuster replacement. They don’t all go this easy. I’ve had to cut S-cams to get a slack adjuster off. I’ve had to melt the snap-ring out with a torch as well. There are bushings in the S-cam tubes that should be inspected and replaced. The ones in this truck probably should be replaced and may be replaced in the near future.

**note** I should’ve put grease or anti seize on the S-cam shaft before reinstalling the new slack adjuster. I don’t get it right all the time.

I want to thank the owner of this company for allowing me to record my repair videos. Thanks Boss Man.

Unless you're a licensed diesel technician, don't put a wrench on the adjusting nut of an automatic slack adjuster in an air brake system. You don't want to take on the liability. If you find your air brakes are out of adjustment, you can grease the slack adjuster and then do a 6-Pack to bring the automatic slack adjuster back into adjustment on an air brake system.
