Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Corrosion protection measures for wing surface in contact with wheel housing liner

Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual / General information, paint / General notes / Corrosion protection measures for wing surface in contact with wheel housing liner

  Note
  The corrosion protection measure is to be carried out in the groove of the wing of all new replacement parts which have not had the additional sealant applied at the factory.
  The additional sealant is intended to prevent the wheel housing liner from possibly “scouring” the groove of the wing, which could cause corrosion.
–  Apply surfacer on inside and outside of wing.
–  After surfacer has been applied and has dried, apply and spread sealant -D 511 500 A2- in the contact area of wheel housing liner (groove of wing).
