10-08-45-001D Information for Electrical Ground Repair - Use New Replacement Fasteners with Conductive Finish - (Feb 14 2013) - part 3

Rating:
The oxidized wear debriscan accumulate at the electrical contact points causing the electrical resistanceacross the connection to increase.

Carefully remove ANY corrosion or contamination that may be present on the electrical ground wire terminal.Install the electrical ground wire terminal and the M6 conductive bolt to the groundlocation.Select a M6 conductive nut. Refer to the Parts Information section of this bulletin.Install the M6 conductive nut to the bolt and:

Tighten

Tighten to 8 Y (71 lb in).

Note:The repair area MUST BE properly refinished to maintain a secure, stable and corrosion-freeelectrical ground.

Refinish the repair area using an anti-corrosion primer. Refer to Anti-Corrosion Treatmentand Repair in SI.Verify proper system operation.M8 Weld Nut

Caution:Use only the GM-approved replacement fasteners with conductive finish for electricalground repair.

If the M8 weld nut electrical ground location is accessible from both sides of thepanel, a M8 conductive bolt and a M8 conductive nut may be used to secure the electricalground wire terminal. Refer to the Parts Information section of this bulletin.Select a location adjacent the M8 weld nut having 20 mm (0.79 in) clearance behindthe panel surface and 20 mm (0.79 in) clearance surrounding the new electrical groundsite.Using GM approved residue-free solvent or equivalent, remove any grease from the surfacesurrounding the ground location and allow to dry.

Note:Ensure 20 mm (0.79 in) clearance is maintained behind the panel to be drilled.

Drill a 10 mm (0.40 in) diameter hole through the panel.Remove paint and primer from the area surrounding the 10 mm (0.40 in) hole until baremetal is visible.Select a M8 conductive bolt. Refer to the Parts Information section of this bulletin.Using a small brush, apply Dielectric Lubricant GM P/N 12377900 (Canadian P/N 10953529)to the threads of the M8 conductive bolt.

Note:Fretting corrosion is a build-up of insulating, oxidized wear debris that can formwhen there is a small motion between electrical contacts. The oxidized wear debriscan accumulate at the electrical contact points causing the electrical resistanceacross the connection to increase.

Carefully remove ANY corrosion or contamination that may be present on the electrical ground wire terminal.Install the electrical ground wire terminal and the M8 conductive bolt to the groundlocation.Select a M8 conductive nut. Refer to the Parts Information section of this bulletin.Install the M8 conductive nut to the bolt and:

Tighten

Tighten to 22 Y (16 lb ft).

Note:The repair area MUST BE properly refinished to maintain a secure, stable and corrosion-freeelectrical ground.

Refinish the repair area using an anti-corrosion primer. Refer to Anti-Corrosion Treatmentand Repair in SI.Verify proper system operation.M8 Weld Nut Alternative Repair

Caution:Use only the GM-approved replacement fasteners with conductive finish for electricalground repair.

If the M8 weld nut electrical ground location is not accessible from both sides ofthe panel, a M6 conductive rivet stud and a M6 conductive nut may be used to securethe electrical ground wire terminal.Select a location adjacent the damaged M8 weld nut having 20 mm (0.79 in) clearancebehind the panel surface and 20 mm (0.79 in) clearance surrounding the M6 conductiverivet stud flange.Using GM approved residue-free solvent or equivalent, remove any grease from the repairsite and allow to dry.

Note:Ensure 20 mm (0.79 in) clearance is maintained behind the panel to be drilled.
