Opel Insignia: Fuel and Evaporative Emission Pipe Warning

WARNING: In order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury observe the following items:

  • Replace all nylon fuel pipes that are nicked, scratched or damaged during installation, do not attempt to repair the sections of the nylon fuel pipes
  • Do not hammer directly on the fuel harness body clips when installing new fuel pipes. Damage to the nylon pipes may result in a fuel leak.
  • Always cover nylon vapor pipes with a wet towel before using a torch near them. Also, never expose the vehicle to temperatures higher than 115ºC (239ºF) for more than one hour, or more than 90ºC (194ºF) for any extended period.
  • Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male pipe ends before connecting fuel pipe fittings. This will ensure proper reconnection and prevent a possible fuel leak. (During normal operation, the Orings located in the female connector will swell and may prevent proper reconnection if not lubricated.)

FUEL GAUGE LEAK WARNING

WARNING: Wrap a shop towel around the fuel pressure connection in order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury. The towel will absorb any fuel leakage that occurs during the connection of the fuel pressure gauge.

Place the towel in an approved container when the connection of the fuel pressure gauge is complete.

FUEL PIPE FITTING WARNING

WARNING: Always apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male pipe ends before connecting the fuel pipe fittings. This will ensure proper reconnection and prevent a possible fuel leak. Always replace O-rings.

FUEL STORAGE WARNING

WARNING: Do not drain the fuel into an open container. Never store the fuel in an open container due to the possibility of a fire or an explosion.

FUEL VAPORS IN EVAPORATIVE EMISSION COMPONENTS WARNING

WARNING: Do not breathe the air through the EVAP component tubes or hoses. The fuel vapors inside the EVAP components may cause personal injury.

GLASS AND SHEET METAL HANDLING WARNING

WARNING: When working with any type of glass or sheet metal with exposed or rough edges, wear approved safety glasses and gloves in order to reduce the chance of personal injury.

HALOGEN BULB WARNING

WARNING: Halogen bulbs contain gas under pressure. Handling a bulb improperly could cause it to shatter into flying glass fragments. To help avoid personal injury:

  • Turn off the lamp switch and allow the bulb to cool before changing the bulb.
  • Leave the lamp switch OFF until the bulb change is complete.
  • Always wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb.
  • Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass.
  • Keep dirt and moisture off the bulb.
  • Properly dispose of the used bulb.
  • Keep halogen bulbs out of the reach of children.

HOT EXHAUST SYSTEM WARNING

WARNING: While engine is operating, the exhaust system will become extremely hot.

To prevent burns avoid contacting a hot exhaust system.

INNER PANELS AND REINFORCEMENTS WARNING

WARNING: Do not damage any inner panels and reinforcements. Damage to the inner panels and reinforcements can cause weak body structure. In the event of a crash, a weakened body structure will significantly increase the risk of bodily injury.

MOVING PARTS AND HOT SURFACES WARNING

WARNING: Avoid contact with moving parts and hot surfaces while working around a running engine in order to prevent physical injury.

PARKING BRAKE AND DRIVE WHEELS WARNING

WARNING: Apply the parking brake and block the drive wheels before performing this procedure in order to prevent bodily injury.

PROTECTIVE GOGGLES AND GLOVE WARNING

WARNING: Always wear protective goggles and gloves when removing exhaust parts as falling rust and sharp edges from worn exhaust components could result in serious personal injury.

R-1234YF PROPER SERVICE PROCEDURES WARNING

WARNING: For personal safety, proper service procedure and refrigerant handling guidelines reference the applicable SAE standards when servicing vehicles equipped with R-1234yf refrigerant systems. Reference SAE J639, SAE J2845, SAE J2842, SAE J2843 & SAE J2851. Failure to follow these precautions may cause personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.

RELIEVING FUEL PRESSURE WARNING

WARNING: Remove the fuel tank cap and relieve the fuel system pressure before servicing the fuel system in order to reduce the risk of personal injury.

After you relieve the fuel system pressure, a small amount of fuel may be released when servicing the fuel lines, the fuel injection pump, or the connections. In order to reduce the risk of personal injury, cover the fuel system components with a shop towel before disconnection. This will catch any fuel that may leak out. Place the towel in an approved container when the disconnection is complete.

ROAD TEST WARNING

WARNING: Road test a vehicle under safe conditions and while obeying all traffic laws. Do not attempt any maneuvers that could jeopardize vehicle control. Failure to adhere to these precautions could lead to serious personal injury and vehicle damage.

SAFETY GLASSES AND COMPRESSED AIR WARNING

WARNING: Wear safety glasses when using compressed air in order to prevent eye injury.

SAFETY GLASSES WARNING

WARNING: Wear safety glasses in order to avoid eye damage.

SAFETY GOGGLES AND FUEL WARNING

WARNING: Always wear safety goggles when working with fuel in order to protect the eyes from fuel splash.
