Sectioning and Partial Part Replacement: 2018 Lexus LC 500h

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 2018 Lexus LC 500h.

The full OEM Partial Part Replacement Search page for the 2018 Lexus LC 500h 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, Lexus has a paid subscription website with collision repair information.

The front lower rail and front upper rail have no OEM procedures available, so full-part replacement is required. There is one location in which the rear rail and the trunk floor can be partially replaced at factory seams. Multiple sectioning locations are available for the outer uniside, and a single sectioning location for the inner uniside. There are no OEM procedures available for the uniside reinforcement, or the rear body panel.
