Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Fitting single wire seals

  Note
Single wire seals prevent the ingress of moisture and dirt in the contact housing. They are installed, for example, in the engine compartment and must always be reinstalled following repairs.
As standard, the single wire seal is crimped together with the contact on the wire; this is not the case with the repair wires. Before crimping the repair line, the single wire seal must therefore first be pushed onto the wire.
It is essential that the single wire seals are of the correct size to fit the cross section of the repair wire. The outer diameter of the single wire seal is based on the socket diameter of the contact housing. Only carry out the repair using the correct assembly tool.
Assembling single wire seal:
   
–  Disengage the contact locking mechanism using the appropriate release tool -A- and then pull the wire with the single wire seal backwards -arrow- out of the contact housing.
