Operators, a rusty water stain on the ceiling of your FMTV’s cab usually means water is seeping past the roof’s cab bolts. This is normal and something that usually happens over time.
If you see stains on the cab’s ceiling, inside the frame or behind the windshield visor, let your mechanic know. You can get rid of the leaks in two quick steps:
Rust stains warn of leaks
- Clean the area around the cab bolts. Make sure it’s dry before going to Step 2.
- Apply adhesive silicone, NSN 8040-00-118-2695, around the top of the bolts. That seals out water and prevents future leaks.
