Sectioning and Partial Part Replacement: 2017 Subaru Outback

One of the top technical inquiries received at Ask I-CAR, “Is there a sectioning or partial replacement procedure available?” To help answer this question, RTS has an OEM Partial Part Replacement Search available. Here you will find information on if these procedures are available on a specific vehicle. Let’s take a closer look at the 2017 Subaru Outback.

The full OEM Partial Part Replacement Search page for the2017 Subaru Outback can be viewed on the I-CAR website. This will give you a good understanding on general areas for sectioning or partial replacement. I-CAR does not have permission to show exact locations for sectioning or the procedure itself. However, Subaru has a repair information website with collision repair information.

Subaru allows sectioning of the inner and outer front lower rails, it also shows the difference between left and right side. There is a partial replacement at factory seams that’s just before the cowl panel. The front upper rail has multiple partial replacements at factory seam locations along with a single location for rear rail partial replacement at factory seams.

There are multiple sectioning locations for the outer uniside including A-pillar, B-pillar, and quarter panel. The 2017 Outback has multiple locations for partial replacement at factory seams for the trunk floor.
