Can You Section A General Motors Vehicle Without A Procedure?

General Motors has collision repair information on their website that is available for free.

Did you know that in 2013, General Motors published a position statement that identifies that sectioning should only be performed in recommended areas? This warning is applicable to all GM lines including Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC.

The following is from the GM position statement: "Warning: Sectioning should be performed only in the recommended areas. Failure to do so may compromise the structural integrity of the vehicle and cause personal injury if the vehicle is in a collision."

The Collision Sectioning Warning statement can be found on the GM collision repair information pay site in the: Service Manual ➤ Preface ➤ Dangers, Warnings, and Cautions ➤ Collision Sectioning Warning.
