Sectioning and Partial Part Replacement: 2018 Kia Stinger

One of the top technical inquiries 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 2018 Kia Stinger.

The full OEM Partial Part Replacement Search for the 2018 Kia Stinger 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, Toyota has a paid subscription website with collision repair information.

There are no OEM procedures available for sectioning the front lower rail and the front upper rail. There is however, a partial part replacement procedure for the front lower rail using MIG plug welding or spot welding with adhesive. Partial replacement is also available for the rear rail. The outer uniside can be sectioned in multiple locations. There are no OEM procedures available for the uniside reinforcement, inner uniside, trunk, or rear body panel.
