Body Repair Manual Symbols

While looking at repair procedures in a body repair manual (BRM) you may notice that symbols are used to indicate specific operations or parts to be used during the repair process. Most BRMs provide a glossary or a chart that explains these symbols.

The RTS team is researching BRM symbols and compiling the information into a series of OEM-specific articles. This article series helps you identify and understand the symbols you see in BRMs and instructs you on how to locate symbol descriptions in the manual.

Knowing where to locate symbol tables or charts in body repair manuals and properly deciphering them is essential to help ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.
