Bumper Cover Repair With ADAS

A simple bumper repair on a modern vehicle may not be as simple as it seems. New technologies like blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and other advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) utilize sensors behind the bumper covers. The ability for these sensors to be able to see clearly, normally requires special caution when considering a bumper repair. Many OEMs have different levels of warnings when it comes to repairing bumper covers with ADAS.

The I-CAR RTS team has been researching service manuals, bulletins, and other sources of OEM information to provide the most up-to-date details on approved bumper repairs. When the information was compiled for a specific OEM, we published an article detailing the information we found. In addition, we let you know where this information could be found for each OEM. Follow OEM procedures and warnings to help ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.
