Request

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

Response

Ford does not have a sectioning procedure for the rocker panel reinforcement.

Per the 2016 Ford Taurus Workshop manual, Inner Body Reinforcing Panels: “NOTICE: Sectioning procedures can only carried out on the outer body side panel. No sectioning repairs can be carried out on inner reinforcement panels. Failure to follow these instructions may compromise the structural integrity of the vehicle.”
