# 506 021 Sensor Tap Kit

THE PROBLEM – Thread damage when replacing NOX and Particle sensors.

THE SOLUTION – Mueller-Kueps Sensor Tap Kit

Ordinary 3 or 4 cutting edge taps are unsuitable because of their length. They do not have sufficient centering and are actually designed to create new threads.

For this reason, Mueller-Kueps designed this special tool for sensors in the sizes M20x1.5 and M22x1.5. Coarse carbon deposits are removed by the guide pin with cleaning grooves and centering is guaranteed. At only 27 millimeters long you can use this in extremely tight spaces.

The innovative hard material coating also makes the tool particularly durable and enables recutting even with the most stubborn dirt.

  • Extra short special tool with integrated guide pins for recutting dirty holding threads. Especially for NOX and particle filter sensors on exhaust systems.
  • Guide pins with cleaning grooves
  • 6 cutting edges for ideal centering
  • Extra short version, innovative hard material coating
  • Made in Germany

The drop forged steel allows you to put enough pressure on the bolt or other connection to loosen it easily.
