Opel Insignia: Work Stall Test Warning

WARNING: One or more of the following guidelines may apply when performing specific required tests in the work stall:

  • When a test requires spinning the drive wheels with the vehicle jacked up, adhere to the following precautions:
    • Do not exceed 56 km/h (35 mph) when spinning one drive wheel with the other drive wheel stopped. This limit is necessary because the speedometer indicates only one-half the actual vehicle speed under these conditions. Personal injury may result from excessive wheel spinning.
    • If all of the drive wheels are spinning at the same speed, do not exceed 112 km/h (70 mph). Personal injury may result from excessive wheel spinning.
    • All persons should stay clear of the rotating components and the balance weight areas in order to avoid possible personal injury.
    • When running an engine in the repair stall for an extended period of time, use care not to overheat the engine and the transmission.
  • When a test requires jacking up the vehicle and running with the wheels and brake rotors removed, adhere to the following precautions:
    • Support the suspension at normal ride height.
    • Do not apply the brake with the brake rotors removed.
    • Do not place the transmission in PARK with the drive axles spinning.
    • Turn Off the ignition in order to stop the powertrain components from spinning.
  • When running an engine in the work stall, use the exhaust removal system to prevent breathing dangerous gases.

AVOID CHIPPING OR SCRATCHING THE COATING CAUTION

CAUTION: Care should be taken to avoid chipping or scratching the coating when handling the suspension coil spring. Damage to the coating can cause premature failure.

AVOID TOUCHING THE BULB CAUTION

CAUTION: Avoid touching the bulb or letting the bulb come in contact with anything damp. Oil from your skin or moisture on the bulb can cause the bulb to explode when the bulb is turned on. If either comes in contact with the bulb, clean the bulb with alcohol or a suitable degreaser and wipe the bulb dry.

BALL STUD REMOVAL CAUTION

CAUTION: Do not free the ball stud by using a pickle fork or a wedge-type tool.

Damage to the seal or bushing may result.

BELT DRESSING CAUTION

CAUTION: Do not use belt dressing on the drive belt. Belt dressing causes the breakdown of the composition of the drive belt. Failure to follow this recommendation will damage the drive belt.

BRAKE CALIPER CAUTION

CAUTION: Support the caliper with a piece of wire to prevent damage to the brake line.

BRAKE CALIPER SUPPORTING TO PREVENT HOSE DAMAGE CAUTION

CAUTION: Support the brake caliper with heavy mechanic wire, or equivalent, whenever it is separated from its mount and the hydraulic flexible brake hose is still connected. Failure to support the caliper in this manner will cause the flexible brake hose to bear the weight of the caliper, which may cause damage to the brake hose and in turn may cause a brake fluid leak.

BRAKE FLUID EFFECTS ON PAINT AND ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS CAUTION

CAUTION: Avoid spilling brake fluid onto painted surfaces, electrical connections, wiring, or cables. Brake fluid will damage painted surfaces and cause corrosion to electrical components. If any brake fluid comes in contact with painted surfaces, immediately flush the area with water. If any brake fluid comes in contact with electrical connections, wiring, or cables, use a clean shop cloth to wipe away the fluid.

CLEAN, DRY, LOW PRESSURE GAS SOURCE CAUTION

CAUTION: Use the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Tester GE 41413-A in order to provide a clean, dry, low pressure nitrogen gas source. Do not substitute any other pressurized source, gas or otherwise. Damage may result to the EVAP system, test equipment or cause a safety risk.

CLEARCOAT/ULTRAVIOLET SCREENERS CAUTION

CAUTION: Removing more than 0.5 mils of the clearcoat can result in early paint failure. The clearcoat contains ultraviolet screeners. Do not finesse sand more than what is required to remove the defect.

COLLISION REPAIR ANCHORING CAUTION

CAUTION: Proper anchoring of the vehicle is required before pulling on the vehicle structure. The vehicle must be properly anchored at all four corners of the passenger compartment, to keep the HV battery pack from being damaged during the repair. Removal of the HV battery pack is recommended, if the vehicle can not be properly anchored.
