OEM Linking Pin:  2017-Present Chrysler Pacifica - Front Lower Rail Sectioning

As part of the I-CAR Repairability Technical Support (RTS) OEM Linking Pin activity, we are helping to connect the collision repair industry to the vehicle makers. Recently we had a technical inquiry that asked for clarification on the front lower rail sectioning procedure on a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica.

The procedure in the body repair manual states, “Right side shown, left side similar”. However, when measuring on the left side (drivers’ side), the cut line would go through a nutsert. We reached out to our contact at FCA for clarification. Per our contact at FCA: "Yes, you can adjust the cutline enough to allow room for the backer to avoid the nutsert."
