Observe the following safety notes when performing body repairs:
Removal of components may change the gravity center of the vehicle.
The vehicle may therefore have to be tied down by additional measures on the lifting platform.
Do not store other vehicles without additional protection in rooms used for body repairs (risk of fire damage due to sparks, damage to battery, paint and body glass).
Be extremely careful when grinding or welding in the vicinity of the fuel tank and other parts of the fuel system. If necessary, remove all components affected.
Do not weld, braze or solder any parts of the filled air conditioning system. This also applies to welding, brazing or soldering operations on the vehicle that may cause components of the air
When drying the vehicle following a respray, do not expose the vehicle to temperatures of max.
To protect electronic control units against excessive voltage when using electric welding equipment, observe the following safety measures:
Disconnect cable from negative battery terminal and cover negative battery terminal.
Connect ground clamp of electric welding equipment directly and as closely as possible to the component to be welded. Make sure no electrically insulated parts are located between the
Do not touch electric control units and electric lines with the ground clamp or with the welding
Safety precautions for operations involving naked flames or spark generation (welding, grinding) in the vicinity of the battery or near the location of the battery vent hose:
Remove battery and store it in a safe place.
Blow through vent hose using compressed air. Plug hose ends.
(The vent hose is routed into the left-hand wheel houing via an elbow fitting at the front above
Handling of electronic control units after accident repairs
Replacement of electronic components after an accident is required if at least one of the following conditions is present:
The housing is visibly deformed or damaged.
The support surface or console is deformed (no outward signs of damage to the unit).
The plug connection is damaged or corroded due to moisture.
The functional check or self-diagnosis of the unit displays the following fault:
if electronic components, e.g. the ABS control unit, have been removed when repairs are carried out and if they are to be reused afterwards, the operation of the components must be checked after reinstallation according to the respective specifications.
