Request

Is there a sectioning procedure available for the outer quarter panel using adhesives only and no welds?

Response

Honda does not have a sectioning procedure for the outer quarter panel using adhesives only and no welds.

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.”
