Estimating Tip: CCC, Mitchell and Audatex: Welded Impact Bars
Some vehicles may come manufactured from the OEM with front bumper reinforcements bolted and welded to the unibody structure.
Published labor times DO NOT account for the additional labor to repair the “adjacent” areas that may be damaged and requiring repair and refinish resulting from drilling, cutting, and grinding. This would be an ON-THE-SPOT evaluation.
Always following OEM repair procedures for proper torque specifications and if the new part may require re welding.
