Sectioning and Partial Part Replacement: 2017 Subaru Legacy

One of the top technical inquires received at Ask I-CAR, “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 2017 Subaru Legacy.

The full 2017 Subaru Legacy OEM Partial Part Replacement Search can be viewed on the I-CAR website. This will give you a good understanding on general areas for sectioning or partial replacement. I-CAR does not have permission to show exact locations for sectioning or the procedure itself. However, Subaru has repair information website with collision repair information.

Subaru allows sectioning of the inner and outer front lower rails, it also shows the difference between left and right side. There is a partial replacement at factory seams just before the cowl panel. The front upper rail has multiple partial replacements at factory seam locations along with a single location for rear rail partial replacement at factory seams.

There are multiple sectioning locations for the outer uniside, including the A-pillar, B-pillar, and quarter panel. The 2017 Legacy has multiple locations for partial replacement at factory seams for the uniside reinforcements, inner uniside, and the trunk floor.
