Request

Is there a sectioning procedure available for the inner uniside?

Response

Jeep does not have a sectioning procedure for the inner uniside.

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.”

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.
