Request

Is there a sectioning procedure available for the rear rails?

Response

Toyota does not have a sectioning procedure for the rear rails.

Per Toyota Bulletin #176 - Approved Collision Repair Methods: A "Method Not Approved" is "Sectioning at Non-Specified Locations"

The bulletins can be found at techinfo.toyota.com
