Estimated Release Date: Closed Proposed Resolution: MOTOR stated: After review of MOTOR data, we have determined the following: The estimated work time for a “Body Panel” that is “bolted-on” i.e. Hood, Door, Trunk Lid, Lift Gate, Tail Gate etc. Does Not Include caulk/seam sealer. This is due to a variation in supplied Service Parts that require caulk/seam sealer. The OEM caulk/seam sealer may or may not be applied to the Service Part or the OEM caulk/seam sealer only partially applied. MOTOR suggests using an on-the-spot evaluation to determine if duplicating the OEM caulk/seam sealer is required. MOTOR recommends these factors be considered and mutually agreed upon before finalizing any repair cost estimate. 8/27/18 Additional MOTOR FEEDBACK The seam sealer/caulk is not included with R&R Fender. We will add the statement to the Fender group in the GTE to match the Hood, Trunk Lid and Door sections.
