Depending on the separating tools used, there are some fundamental points to bear in mind:

  • Only start the cutting work once the new part is to hand.
  • Compare the new part with the old part for shape and size.
  • The straightening work must be completed before any body components to be replaced are cut out.
  • Before separation work is started, all welded connections which cannot be seen must be freed of underbody protection, sealant etc.
