No noticeable damage to the bodywork structure

In addition to external indicators such as flaking paintwork or cracks in the underbody protection, it is vital to check for damage to the body structure that is not visible from the outside (hidden body damage) during a damage assessment. Unless ancillary components are removed, it is often impossible to achieve accurate diagnosis of the underlying body parts.

NOTE: In order to determine the damage as accurately as possible, it may be necessary to remove ancillary components in the area of the damage.

Particular attention must be paid to the following components:

  • The A, B and C pillars in the roof area.
  • Floor pan.
  • Rear ancillary components, such as bumper, lights, etc.
  • Trunk floor, spare wheel cavity.
  • Rear coverings, such as interior trim, carpet, etc.
  • Lower rubber seals, e.g. in door area (welded flange).
  • Area under the rear seat.
  • Attachment points of transmission system, steering, engine, drive shafts, front and rear axles.
  • Electrical components, e.g. the radio (damage through shaking or through voltage peaks).
