Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Preparing body flange for fitting

  WARNING
Keep bonding surface free of dirt and grease.
Do not treat bonding surface with activator immediately after cutting back. Do not prime. Do not treat with cleaning solution.
   
–  Cut back remaining material on body flange with U-shaped blade -V.A.G 1561/3-, but do not remove completely.
  Note
The remaining material is required as a base for the new adhesive sealing material. Keep dirt and grease off of bonding surfaces.
  WARNING
Exception: if bonding is performed later than one day after cutting back adhesive bead, the remaining residual material must be activated with activator.
Apply activator evenly in one stroke using applicator.
Activator must not come in contact with paint, or the paintwork will be damaged.
Drying time approx. 10 minutes
  If the window flange has been repaired or partially renewed, the area concerned must be cleaned and primed again after painting.
  Note
It is possible that a laser weld seam lies outside the area of the adhesive bead. In this case, the exposed weld seam must be sealed with glass adhesive before bonding the window.
