"Vor dem Veschrotten mit Bohrer ca. 3mm [diameter] an der
gasbefuellten Seite anbohren. Dazu Schutzbrille tragen."
This note is on the exploded diagram in 'Fahrwerk Allradantrieb 07/87".
It only seems to apply to the later type of pressure accumulator, i.e.,
not the dome type fitted to early ur-quattros.
As to why - imagine one of these things winding up in a small recycling
plant with an open furnace. Don't forget the valve is still in there
on this design - so even if heat ruptures the diaphragm it will still
retain an (ever increasing) internal pressure. That isn't so for the
earlier type - lose the diaphragm and you've lost everything.
