-

Check the threaded connection for corrosion, contamination, etc. 

-

Select the corresponding adapter and the corresponding sanding pad for the threaded connection. 

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.

‹› 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.

-

Place the adapter on the threaded connection and sand off the corrosion and contaminants with circular movements.

-

Check the threaded connection and sand it again if necessary.

-

Retighten the connection and, if necessary, the anti-rotation protection to the specified torque.

‹› Optimal contact is ensured if the bolted components are tightened to the specified torque after cleaning.

-

Apply protection material to the threaded connection. Refer to => [ Protecting Connections ] See: Description and Operation/Protecting
Connections.

-

Reconnect the battery.

CAUTION!
Risk of injury. Observe warning notes and safety precautions. Refer to => [ Battery Safety Precautions ] See: Starting and
Charging/Battery/Service Precautions/Battery Safety Precautions and => [ Battery Safety Designation ] See: Starting and
Charging/Battery/Service Precautions/Battery Safety Designation!
