Sectioning and Partial Part Replacement: 2017 Toyota Corolla

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 Toyota Corolla.

The full OEM Partial Part Replacement Search page for the 2017 Toyota Corolla 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, Toyota has a repair information website with collision repair information.

There is sectioning for the inner front lower rail on the Corolla. The inner front lower rail can be sectioned using an open butt joint, while the outer front lower rail is a partial part, so the whole front lower rail tip can be replaced. A second option on the front lower rail is a partial part replacement in front of the cowl. The rear rail allows for a partial part replacement procedure, which requires the rear body panel to be removed.

The outer, inner, and reinforcements for the uniside all have multiple sectioning procedures available. The majority of these sectioning joints will be open butt joints, but can vary by procedure. The trunk floor has multiple partial replacement procedures.
