0A-3 General Information:
There are two kinds of colored wire used in this vehicle. One is single-colored wire and the other is dual-colored
(striped) wire.
The single-colored wire uses only one color symbol (i.e. "GRN").
The dual-colored wire uses two color symbols (i.e. "GRN/YEL"). The first symbol represents the base color of the wire
("GRN" in the figure) and the second symbol represents the color of the stripe ("YEL" in the figure).
Fasteners Information
Metric Fasteners
Most of the fasteners used for this vehicle are JIS-
defined and ISO-defined metric fasteners. When
replacing any fasteners, it is most important that
replacement fasteners be the correct diameter, thread
pitch and strength.
CAUTION
!
Even when the nominal diameter (1) of thread
is the same, the thread pitch (2) or the width
across flats (3) may vary between ISO and
JIS. Refer to JIS-TO-ISO Main Fasteners
Comparison Table below for the difference.
Installing a mismatched bolt or nut will cause
damage to the thread.
Before installing, check the thread pitch for
correct matching and then tighten it by hand
temporarily. If it is tight, recheck the thread
pitch.

Fastener Strength Identification
Most commonly used metric fastener strength property
classes are 4T, 6.8, 7T, 8.8 and radial line with the class
identification embossed on the head of each bolt. Some
metric nuts will be marked with punch, 6 or 8 mark
strength identification on the nut face. Figure shows the
different strength markings.
When replacing metric fasteners, be careful to use bolts
and nuts of the same strength or greater than the original
fasteners (the same number marking or higher). It is
likewise important to select replacement fasteners of the
correct diameter and thread pitch. Correct replacement
bolts and nuts are available through the parts division.
Metric bolts: Identification class numbers or marks
correspond to bolt strength (increasing numbers
represent increasing strength).
