Sectioning And Partial Part Replacement: 2020 Cadillac CT5

One of the top technical inquiries 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 2020 Cadillac CT5.

The full OEM Partial Part Replacement Search page for the 2020 Cadillac CT5 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, Cadillac has a paid subscription website with collision repair information.

This vehicle has a few aluminum structural components that have specific replacement procedures. There are no sectioning procedures for the front lower rails or the front upper rails. There is, however, an available partial part replacement at factory seams for the front upper rails. There is a single sectioning location for the rear rails that calls for adhesive, spot welding, and MIG welds for installation. Multiple sectioning locations are available for the trunk floor, according to the body repair manual.

There are multiple locations in which the outer uniside can be sectioned. Outer uniside sectioning procedures on this vehicle call for an overlap joint upon installation of replacement panels. There are no OEM sectioning or partial replacement procedures available for the uniside reinforcement, inner uniside, or the rear body panel.
