Technical information should always be available to the foremen and mechanics, because their careful and constant adherence to the instructions is essential to ensure vehicle road worthiness and safety. In addition, the normal basic safety precautions for working on motor vehicles must, as a matter of course, be observed.
Battery with sealing plugs
- A visual check of the battery is sufficient for batteries with clearly visible external min. and max. marks.
- The electrolyte level must be above the minimum marking, but must not exceed the maximum marking.
- If the external min. and max. marks on the battery are not clearly visible or if the electrolyte level cannot be checked properly due to an opaque battery housing, the sealing plugs must be unscrewed. It is then possible to visually check the electrolyte level from the inside.
- The electrolyte level must align with the marking inside the battery (plastic moulding). This corresponds to the max. mark‐ ing on the outside.
Before using the test gauge to check the pad thickness, push the sliding ring towards the tip of the gauge as far as it will go. Then insert the test gauge through the wheel rim and bring the tip of the gauge into contact with the brake disc. Then slide the body of the gauge uniformly towards the brake pad until the gauge makes contact with the backplate of the brake pad. Then take out the test pin and read off the value on the scale marked with the brake symbol.
