Cutting back adhesive bead  
lk  
♦ If an undamaged window is being re-used, cut back the resid‐  
ual adhesive sealant to 1 to 2 mm shortly before bonding it  
back in.  
♦ Do not damage primer and ceramic coating when doing this.  
♦ Keep bonding surface free of dirt and grease.  
♦ Do not treat bonding surface with activator, glass/paint primer  
or cleaning solution immediately after cutting back.  
♦ The remaining material is required as a base for better adhe‐  
sion of the new adhesive sealing material to be applied.  
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 .  
NOTICE

Note  
The distance between glass/paint primer as well as adhesive bead and the outer edge of the windscreen differs  
in the lower area of the windscreen.  
– Up to -dimension a- = 150 mm measured from lower edge of  
windscreen the distance between the adhesive bead and the  
outer edge is -dimension b- = 6 mm.  
– From this point down to the bend the distance amounts to  
-dimension d- = 20 mm.  
– At half distance between dimension a and the bend  
-dimension c- must be 10 mm.
