Body Construction And Material Repair Guidelines: Hyundai

What is the MPa of the front lower rail? What is the outer uniside made of: steel, aluminum, or composite? Can heat be used to straighten or is it cold straightening only? What are the repair limitations? These are just some of the questions that the RTS team fields on a daily basis.

As we know, today’s vehicles can be constructed from a wide variety of materials. Knowing if the OEM provides information on body construction materials and repair guidelines is a crucial step in providing a complete, safe, and quality repair. Let’s see what Hyundai has to say.

Hyundai provides construction material breakdown on various vehicle components. The information is found in vehicle-specific body repair manuals under: Body Repair ➤ Body Repair Manual ➤ Body Construction. Hyundai includes color-coded illustrations that show the type of material used.

At this time, Hyundai does not provide MPa or heating guidelines for the steels identified.
