Tensioning Clamp on Small Diameter

  Note

  • The hard material of the CV boot (compared to rubber) makes it necessary to use a stainless steel hose clamp. It is only possible to tighten the hose clamp with Clamping Pliers -VAG1682A-.
  • Tightening specification: 25 Nm.
  • Use torque wrench -C- with adjustment range 5 to 50 Nm (for example Torque Wrench 1331 5-50Nm -VAG1331-).
  • Make sure the threads on the spindle -A- on the pliers move easily. Lubricate with MOS 2 grease, if necessary.
  • If the thread is tight, for example it is dirty, the required tensioning force for the hose clamp will not be achieved in spite of correct torque specification settings.
