Note

  • When being installed in the production, the seals are coated with a sealing mass, placed in the flange and then put in position using the press tool - T20098- .
  • On removing the seal, the sealant spreads onto the interior of the seal and the sides open slightly. When reinstalling, the tightness nor the correct seating of the seal can be guaranteed.

    Therefore each seal which is removed completely should be replaced by a so-called "tap-on" seal.

  • If the gaskets are pulled out partially, it is necessary to press the sides of the seal together before installing.

- Temporarily place the seal on the bodywork flange. When doing so, keep in mind the following:

  • The vulcanised connection -arrow- must have a distance -A= 50 mm- from the fixing opening of the door holder.
