– Check axle mountings also for following damage:  
♦ Complete separation of rubber and metal parts.  
♦ Large play between mounting and suspension link, which  
has a considerably negative effect on the function of the  
mounting.  
Note  
Superficial cracks and cuts as well as minor separations of  
the rubber element from the metal part do not significantly  
affect the operation of the elasto-kinematic mounting and do  
not constitute a basis for a complaint.  
Damage to the thin rubber skin over cavities due to con‐  
struction is also permissible.  
Play between bearing and axle component is permissible as  
long as there is no negative effect on the function of the  
bearing.
