Dear Ministry of Defence,
The MOD have previously released for sale through the appointed disposal contractor Modification Kits for the fitment of a battery negative isolation switch.
The NSN for the kit is 7XD-5999-99-905-0844 and the installation is covered by Modification Instruction 41 in AESP 2320-D-128-811
Can you please confirm if this modification is still current in the AESP or if it has been deleted. If it has been deleted can you please inform me of the reasons why.
I request this information because a suggestion has been made that it was deleted because of safety issues involving vehicle fires caused by the modification. Myself and others have these kits fitted and they are still available for sale through various surplus retailers which naturally raises some significant safety concerns.
Any information would be gratefully received.
Dear Mr Percival
