Request

Is there a sectioning procedure available for the rocker panel reinforcement?

Response

Mazda does not have a sectioning procedure for the xxx.

Per I-CAR curriculum: “Most vehicle makers require complete replacement of the reinforcement if it is damaged. If no recommendation exists from the vehicle maker, the part should be replaced at factory seams.”

Mazda has a partial replacement at factory seams procedure for the rocker panel reinforcement. The procedures can be found at www.mazdaserviceinfo.com
