Are there any special precautions to take when preparing for a paint bake cycle?

Response

Per I-CAR curriculum developed in cooperation with the vehicle maker: “Some commonly associated service precautions with hybrid electric vehicles are not recommendations from Toyota/Lexus. For example, there are no special precautions to take when preparing a hybrid vehicle for a paint bake cycle. High temperatures can cause high voltage battery damage, but there is no chance or reaching those temperatures during bake cycles in a spraybooth.”
