Sectioning and Partial Part Replacement: 2017 Nissan Maxima

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 Nissan Maxima.

The full OEM Partial Part Replacement Search page for the 2017 Nissan Maxima 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, Nissan has a paid subscription website with collision repair information.

The Maxima offers a partial replacement at factory seams in a single location for the front lower rail and the rear rail. However, the upper rail has multiple locations for partial replacement. These include a replacement procedure for both the inner and outer upper rail.

Sectioning of the outer uniside is allowed in multiple locations including procedures for the outer A-pillar, outer B-pillar, and the outer quarter panel. Partial part replacement at factory seams is available in a single location for the trunk floor.
