Rapidly changing OEM repair procedures require high attention from collision repairers

Advanced driving assistant systems (ADAS) and new repair procedures are making the review process for collision repairers a critical issue. A new 2019 model of a vehicle could have a five-page repair procedure, including calibrations of the ADAS system. Sometimes even repairs on older vehicles will have updated procedures that shops may not take time to look up.

Jack Rodenroth of asTech presented at a Collision Industry Conference (CIC) meeting in Las Vegas in October about the importance of reviewing OEM procedures by collision repairers every single time. But how do collision shops keep up? Don't memorize each procedure, get better at looking them up each time says Rodenroth.
