One of the top technical inquires received at Ask I-CAR is “Is there a sectioning or partial replacement procedure available?” To help answer this question, RTS has an OEM Partial Part Replacement Search available. Here you will find information on if these procedures are available on a specific vehicle. Let’s take a closer look at the Volkswagen Tiguan.

However, Volkswagen has a paid subscription website with collision repair information.

Multiple sectioning procedures are available for the outer uniside, according to the body repair manual.
