Special tools and workshop equipment required
Torque Wrench 1331 5-50Nm -VAG1331-
  Note
Do not use rust remover, contact spray or grease because the lack of friction will cause the torque to be exceeded when installing and this will lead to the threaded connection breaking.
The gray sanding pads are for slight contamination and suitable for "soft surfaces". The red sanding pads are for heavy contamination and suitable for "hard surfaces".
  WARNING
Risk of injury. Follow all Warnings and Safety Precautions. Refer to → Chapter „Warnings and Safety Precautions“.

  Caution
Make sure the tin layer is not worn down too much and the copper is not visible. A galvanic element can form from this, destroying the metal and causing incorrect repairs.
  Note
Due to the different thicknesses of the tin layer, the cleaning process must be performed in several steps and a visual inspection of the wiring eyelet between steps is necessary.
