Installation

NOTE: Before resistance spot welding of body panels with a total panel thickness of 3 mm and greater, the manufacturer's welding equipment instructions and sub-section 501-25 must be followed.

Refer to: Tools and Equipment for Body Repairs (501-25 Body Repairs - General Information, Description and Operation).

NOTE: Replacement of MIG brazed joints by MIG welds.

Refer to: Joining Techniques (501-25 Body Repairs - General Information, Description and Operation).

  • The factory-installed MIG brazed joints must be replaced by MIG welds in a different position.
  • These MIG welds must not be carried out on or in the immediate vicinity of existing MIG brazed seams as even the smallest amount of brazing solder can result in a reduction in the strength of the weld seam.
