Note

  • Make sure that crimp connections do not lie directly next to each other when several wires need to be repaired. Arrange the crimp connectors at a slight offset so that the circumference of the wiring harness does not become too large.
  • In the event the repair point was previous taped, this point must be taped anew with yellow insulating tape after repairs.
  • Secure the repaired wiring harness if necessary with a cable tie to prevent flapping noises while driving.

Single Wire Seals, Installing

Note

  • Single wire seals prevent the penetration of water and dirt into the contact housing. They are installed, for example, in the engine compartment and must be reinstalled after a repair.
  • Single wire seal is crimped on at the factory together with contact on the wire, this is not the case for repair wires. Single wire seal must be slid onto wire first before crimping the repair wire.
  • Single wire seals must always fit with the repair wire cross-section. Outer circumference of single wire seal is aligned according to chamber circumference of the contact housing. Perform assembly using only the assembly tool with correct fit.

Assembling Single Wire Seal

  • Release contact lock using assembly tool with correct fit -A- and then pull wire with single wire seal toward rear -arrow- out of contact housing.
