Request

Does Hyundai have a sectioning procedure available?

Response

Hyundai Motor America does not currently offer collision repair information in the U.S.

Per I-CAR curriculum: “If vehicle maker procedures or recommendations are not available, DO NOT SECTION. There are some vehicle makers, such as Hyundai, that do not provide any recommendations to the United States with regard to sectioning. However, these vehicle makers still use all the same construction technology as those that provide recommendations, such as high-strength steel, tailor-rolled blanks, etc. Because of this, a best practice is to replace the parts at factory seams. Making assumptions when no recommendations exist can cause parts to deform in a manner not intended by the vehicle maker engineers.”
