Hyundai: Who Requires Or Recommends MIG Brazing?

In Europe, MIG brazing has been required or recommended on a widespread basis for several years. In the U.S., MIG brazing is not as common but is becoming more prevalent. As the RTS team is researching MIG brazing information, we are putting together a series of articles that identify OEM-specific MIG brazing recommendations and requirements for vehicles in the U.S. Let’s see what Hyundai has to say.

Hyundai references brazing in the General Information area under the Body Panel Repair Procedure category of the body repair manual (BRM). Here they state: "Do not braze any body components other than the ones brazed at the factory. Do not use an oxy-acetylene torch for welding."
