Teradata: How to remove character \x00 & \x02 from data

I am loading data from a teradata database like:

df = spark.read.format("jdbc").option("url", "jdbc:teradata://url_of_teradata_db/MAYBENULL=ON,TYPE=FASTEXPORT,charset=ASCII").option("dbtable", "({}) as subq".format(req)).option("driver", "com.teradata.jdbc.TeraDriver").option("user", my_user).option("password", my_password).load()

In my data, I get unwanted character like: \x00 & \x02 ...

How can I correctly read those characters *into my spark.read.format?

I found the NULLBYTEPREFIX but I am not sure how to use it


my query query is really simple:


I ask teradata more information about this column and I get:

| Column Name     | Type | Nullable | Format | Max length | 
| My_TABLE.MY_ROW | CV   | N        | X(100) | 100        |
