Estimate Tip – CCC – Additional Install / Fit of panel is NOT INCLUDED

January 8, 2024

Recent changes to CCC GTE estimate work time premise state “Reported times include one test fit of a component and normal adjustment procedures within the range of motion permitted by the fastener(s) or component to ensure proper fit of the individual new part being replaced.”

MOTOR has provided additional clarification to “one test fit” in recent DEG Inquiry 35663

“MOTOR [estimated work time] does not include a 2nd fitment (or more) of a component to the vehicle, for any reason (including verification of dimensional accuracy or adjacent part alignment). If more than one component installation is required for a specific repair plan, an on-the-spot evaluation should be used for the number of fitments beyond the first one required to perform the repair.”
