    1. Do not butt weld or heat repair because the heat decreases the strength of areas where ultra high strength steel is used. (See the introduction)

    2. Carefully cut the center body pillar reinforcement sub-assembly so not to damage A.

    1. Inspect the fitting of the related parts around the new parts before welding. This affects the appearance of the finish.

    2. Temporarily install the new parts and measure each part of the new parts in accordance with the body dimension diagram. (See the body dimensions)

    3. If the entire supply part is not needed, remove the part of the supply part that is needed.

        Follow the welding conditions below when welding ultra high strength steel to assure sufficient weld strength. (When repairing this model)

      • When welding 2 panels together including 1500 MPa ultra high strength steel.

        *a: Plug weld Plug diameter 10 mm (0.39 in.)
        Wire type AWS A5.18 ER70S-3
        Shield gas Metal active gas

        Note

        Be sure to use Metal active gas (Ar 80% + CO220%) as the shield gas when plug welding.Sufficient weld strength cannot be assured when using 100% CO2shield gas.

    5. Weld the rocker reinforce sub-assembly outer and center body pillar reinforcement sub-assembly to the vehicle side.

    7. After welding, apply the foamed sealing material to the corresponding parts. (See the painting/coating)

    8. After welding, apply body sealer to the corresponding parts. (See the painting/coating)

    9. After applying the top coat, apply anti-rust agent to the internal panel portion of the closed section structural weld points.
