Dana Broadens Tech Training Series

Dana Broadens Tech Training Series

Expanded content to include axle-focused maintenance and inspection videos.

Dana Inc. has broadened its “Driveline Forensics” commercial-vehicle technician training series to include maintenance and inspection videos covering front non-drive steer axles and rear-drive axle carriers.

“We are pleased to continue expanding the ‘Driveline Forensics’ series, providing valuable insights and training for commercial-vehicle technicians, whether they are new to the field or industry veterans,” said Mark Wallace, president of Commercial Vehicle Drive and Motion Systems for Dana. “These training courses serve an important purpose in sufficiently preparing today’s technicians to service and maintain evolving vehicle and component technologies.”

The “Driveline Forensics” series features short, easy-to-follow training sessions. While technical in nature, the videos are designed with a unique, fun style to keep the audience engaged and eager to continue with more videos in the series, according to Dana.

The latest training topic to be added to the series covers steer axle inspection. New courses coming in March 2020 include:

  • Steer axle lubrication 
  • Drive axle inspection 
  • Drive axle carrier assembly removal 
  • Drive axle carrier assembly prep and replacement

Dana will continue to expand the “Driveline Forensics” series throughout 2020. The videos are currently available at dana.com/commercial-vehicles under the Tools and Training tabs.

The “Driveline Forensics” series is hosted by Cristy Lee, skilled technician, multi-media personality, motorsports reporter and avid motorcyclist. During this week’s 2020 Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) Annual Meeting, Lee will be hosting electrification and key product training sessions in Dana’s booth, No. 3403, Tuesday, February 25, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. ET, and Wednesday, February 26, from 8:45 a.m. to noon ET.


Cristy Lee is an automotive TV personality, host, reporter and spokesperson best known for her work with the MotorTrend (formerly Velocity) network, and has been seen on many different automotive programs as a TV host and reporter, including Garage Squad, All Girls Garage, Barrett-Jackson – Collector Car Auctions LIVE on MotorTrend and Discovery Channel, X Games on ESPN/ABC, World Superbike, MotoGP and MotoAmerica on beIN Sports, TORQ: Off-Road Truck Racing, RallyCross, Monster Jam on Fox/SPEED Channel, and several other racing series across different networks.

When she’s not in front of the camera, Lee spends her free time on two-wheels on the street, track, or dirt, or behind the wheel at the racetrack, auto cross or drag strip. As a true gearhead, Lee enjoys time in her own garage at home working on motorcycles – prepping for the next track weekend, ride or making post-race repairs. Currently, she has a 1967 Pontiac Grand Prix convertible in the garage, a family member’s car, which she is in the process of restoring. To learn more about Cristy Lee, visit cristylee.tv.
