Request

Does Honda allow the trunk floor (spare tire well) to be replaced using welds at the front and rear edges and adhesive bonding along the rear rails?

Response

Per the Collision Industry Position Statements “Honda Unibody Repair””:

”Adhesives and Welding

Using adhesives in place of welding for component replacement is not an authorized American Honda repair method. It is important to repair at factory seams using the same procedures as the factory assembly process except where specified otherwise in the Honda or Acura body repair manual.”
