German term or phrase: Schnittfreistellung
Den schraffierten Bereich mit einer dünnen Trennscheibe (Einhandwinkelschleifer) heraustrennen. Dieser Bereich ist durch eine **Schnittfreistellung** gekennzeichnet. Den Holzanschlag durch die angefertigte Freistellung schieben und verschrauben.

Can't put my finger on the right expression for this - any suggestions gratefully received. TIA!

clearance cut
Explanation:
... speculating about the situation: an area within a – perhaps rather thick – panel is factory-prepared for cutting out by the user. The preparation consists of a v-shaped groove (i.e clearance cut) on the back side. The user uses a disc grinder to cut from the front. As the cutting disc cuts through the panel, the v-shaped groove on the back side prevents excessive friction by providing clearance for the cutting disc.

My attempt at the passage would read:
Cut the hatched area using a thin cutting disc (hand-held disc grinder). The area features clearance cut. Pass the wood stop through the opening and secure with screws.
