Repairer Driven News: Clarification of BMW Repair Techniques

Have you ever wondered why BMW does not have a scanning position statement, or why BMW requires rivet bonding instead of welding in some cases? Repairer Driven News (RDN) has recently posted an article where they asked BMW some of these questions. Let’s see what they had to say.

BMW states that there isn’t a need for a scanning position statement because, scanning is already built into BMW’s repair procedures. “Given that, a generic position statement would indeed seem redundant and imprecise.”

They also talk about rivet bonding. According to BMW, rivet bonding is used as a form of quality control. “We can basically confirm that the repair is done right and will hold up in a subsequent accident.”
