Request

Is there a sectioning procedure available for the rear rail?

Response

Honda does not have a sectioning procedure for the rear rail.

Per the 2016 Honda Civic body repair manual: "Check the rear frame position for damage. If necessary, replace the rear floor frame complete. The rear portion of the rear frame cannot be sectioned."

Honda has a partial replacement at factory seams procedure for the rear rail floor closeout panel. The procedures can be found at techinfo.honda.com

For short videos that show how to purchase and access the Honda collision repair information, check out the Honda OEM Information page.

A tool that may be used to find out if the vehicle maker has a partial replacement or sectioning procedure is the I-CAR developed OEM Partial Part Replacement Search.
