Note that there is no longer a requirement to use a borescope with the ability to apply corrosion preventive compound (CPC) during the 48-month fuel cell corrosion inspection.
The change in each TM should be uploaded to IADs in accordance with the instructions in Aviation Maintenance Action Message (AMAM) GEN-20-AMAM-04 (Posting Electronic Changes) until its published in an upcoming manual release. The AMAM explains the step-by-step process for posting electronic changes in IADS until the TM’s next official release.
