REQUIREMENTS WHEN BODYBUILDING ON A SCANIA VEHICLE
TUBES FOR EASY CABLE ROUTING INSIDE INSTRUMENT PANEL
All Scania vehicles are equipped with tubes meant for facilitating routing of bobybuilders cable harness inside the instrument panel. The protective tubes facilitate retrofitting of cable harnesses, which may be required for e.g. new switches. The protective tubes have an inner diameter of 16.6 mm. There is a slight difference between left-hand drive and right-hand drive vehicles in that the tube on righthand drive vehicles is split while it is one full length tube on left-hand drive.
Scania’s certificates are valid for trucks with Scania components fitted in a final position by a Scania factory or by a manufacturer appointed by Scania. The transport-mounted parts are connected to Scania’s component certificates and need to have installation certificate arranged by the bodybuilder.
The bodybuilder is responsible for the vehicle’s bodywork and conversions. This means that application and receipt of final approval, certification or agreement with the certification authority is administered by the bodybuilder.
