Issue Summary: The fog lamp fillers on this model must be glued in. The bumper comes with instructions on the proper way to prep the new cover and the proper type of adhesive to use. Looking at the labor time for bumper replacement on the previous year model, which does not require gluing the fillers in, only shows a .2 difference in the labor. It doesn't appear CCC has allowed additional time for the operation.
Individual Procedure Steps: There are instructions included with the bumper (IR 17FE15 19331076) that show a 12 step process for mounting the fog lamp fillers.
Technician Skill Level: Average
Actual Time To Complete: 1 hours 10 minutes
Suggested Action: Additional time should be added to the bumper replacement as well as a note in CCC notifying the estimator that a particular adhesive is required.
