Carry out the operation on the component on a clean working area.

To ensure good repair:

  • use the recommended consumables,
  • use the recommended tools,
  • observe the tightening torques,
  • observe the recommendations for parts that should always be replaced after removal, refitting or replacement operations,
  • clean and degrease the sections to be bonded, to ensure they bond correctly.
WARNING To ensure proper sealing, the gasket surfaces must be clean, dry and not greasy (avoid any finger marks).


WARNING Do not scrape the joint faces of the aluminium, any damage caused to the joint face will result in a risk of leaks.

Use professional products and apply them with care, for example do not apply too much sealing paste to the sealing surface to prevent damaging the component.
