Pick any week and any autobody forum and you'll find a shop owner or collision repair technician debating the installation of a used Quarter Panel.
Several OEMs have position statements against using used parts in collision repair. But can position statements alone make a case for the use and non use of parts in a repair?
In this episode of Repair University LIVE the team tackles the issue of used quarter panels. How can estimators and technicians decipher the panel replacement procedures and make an educated decision on the do's and dont's of part usage?
They also discuss the included and not included operations of panel replacement and the additional labor and material expenses associated with using a used quarter panel.
