Removal

NOTES:

Within this procedure there are 2 different options depending on type of vehicle body and combination of replacement panels.

The quarter panel is manufactured from mild steel.

The rocker panel butt joint in option 2 must be MIG brazed due to the location of boron reinforcements.

The screw in studs/screws must be replaced with new items in the installation for option 2 of the quarter panel, and the threads into which they are located must be cleaned rigorously to remove old adhesive before assembly.

There is a NVH component around the fuel filler neck aperture on the RH side. If damaged, a new component will be required.

  1. Rear bumper cover
