This module is about the replacement of a welded section within the construction of a vehicle bodyshell.
The candidate will be required to cut a specified section from a welded panel (i.e. a sill section) without causing damage to other vehicle systems or the vehicle structure. The candidate will cut a section from a new panel and replace the section into the vehicle body using techniques such as spot welding, MAG welding, bonding and riveting.
The candidate must be able to ‘dress’ the welds to a finish where the repaired section is ready to accept body filler to a depth of no more than 2mm. The candidate must access the correct repair information / specification and use this information to carry out the repair to the vehicle bodyshell.
