Repair set, aerial cable -VAS 6720-
The repair set, aerial cable -VAS 6720- makes it possible to attain optimal repair quality in the repair of aerial wiring RG 174 (blue) and RKT 031 (black). The set includes the respective stripping tools and crimping tools for both aerial cables. In addition, the case includes all the separate parts needed to connect the Genuine plug in nearly production quality. In this case, only the 0-coded connector (green) is required. All other connecting wires for the various infotainment systems can be found in ETKA (EL-electrical connection elements) in plate 035-XX. These various adapter aerial wires are specific to vehicle models and must always be ordered separately. All the separate parts can be found in the above-named plate for reordering. The compartments of the case are labelled with the part numbers of the consumable materials. The repair set is based on the existing adapters and pliers system of the VAS 1978B.
