Test with UV lamp

A leak test can also be performed using a UV lamp and a special contrasting agent. The advantages of using contrast agent are:

  • No need to dry out wet areas beforehand.
  • The water entry and its subsequent path can be seen more clearly.
  • No need to remove most ancillary components from the vehicle.

NOTE: The equipment manufacturer's instructions must be followed when using a UV lamp and contrast agent.

Procedure for using a UV lamp.

  • Wet the test area with clear water from the outside.
  • Prepare test liquid and apply it from the outside using a suitable water sprayer
  • Illuminate the relevant area from the inside using the UV lamp. The test liquid which enters will make the leak visible.
