Request

Is there a sectioning procedure available for the front lower rails?

Response

Ford does not have a sectioning procedure for the front lower rails.

Ford has the following do not section statement for in the body repair manual for the 2011 Ford Explorer: NOTICE: Frame members are a combination of HSLA and UHSS . Because of this design feature, sectioning is not recognized by Ford Motor Company. Frame Members must be replaced at the factory seams.
