Request

What does Ford say about disassembling a service part assembly?

Response

Per Ford’s collision position statement on Structural Repairs for Ford Motor Company Vehicles: “Where no Ford supplied repair procedure is available, repairs must be made at factory joints or seams with Ford original replacement parts using procedures that duplicate factory assembly processes and techniques.”

Per I-CAR curriculum developed in cooperation with the vehicle maker: “Service parts should be replaced as supplied unless a procedure exists.”
