Hybrid And Electric Vehicle Welding Best Practices

When welding on an HEV or EV, follow the same precautions as when welding on a conventional vehicle. In addition, there are precautions to take with the high-voltage battery. As a best practice, disconnect both the 12 V battery and the high-voltage battery service disconnect. (Note: Always disable the high-voltage battery following the vehicle makers repair information and follow all safety precautions.)

Refinish Precautions

"Toyota identifies no special precautions to take when preparing a hybrid vehicle for a paint bake cycle. Toyota's position is that high temperatures can cause high-voltage battery damage, but there is no chance of reaching those temperatures during bake cycles in a spraybooth."
