Soft soldering

WARNING: The roof repair may only be carried out in Ford-approved special workshops and only by specially trained personnel.

NOTE: The roof is secured to the side walls with laser soldered seams in production. When repairs are carried out, these laser-soldered seams must be replaced by soft-soldered seams.

Soft soldering

WARNING: Poisonous gases and dust can be produced when working solder. Use an extraction unit and, if required, a protective mask.

NOTE: Ford offers basic and in-depth training on the following topics.

NOTE: Areas for soft soldered joints require careful preparation. It is extremely important that the joint surfaces are exactly aligned and that a bare metal joint surface is prepared.

This means:

  • Thorough cleaning of the surfaces to be brazed.
  • Close contact of the panels at the brazing position.
  • Use the soldering iron to warm the location of the seam to be joined.
  • The liquid brazing material is drawn between the panels through capillary action.
