Request

Is there a sectioning procedure available for the A-pillar reinforcement?

Response

Jeep does not have a sectioning procedure for the A-pillar reinforcement.

Per I-CAR curriculum developed in cooperation with the vehicle maker: “Sectioning may only be done to the extent shown in the repair manual. If the damage extends beyond the sectioning location, entire part replacement is the only acceptable repair.”
