SIDE SILL



caution When repairing the area using sound dampening foam material do not use firing tools since the sound dampening foam material may burn.






NOTE ON REPAIR WORK



REMOVAL



1.When removing the side sill reinforcement outer rear, cut the centre pillar reinforcement 80 mm downward from the installation hole of the rear door hinge because the centre pillar reinforcement interferes with it. Remove the side sill end plate and the quarter inner front extension lower as the side sill reinforcement outer rear interferes with them.
2.After removing the side sill reinforcement outer rear, remove the centre pillar inner lower.

INSTALLATION



1.When installing the new centre inner pillar parts, remove the centre pillar inner upper from the centre inner pillar.

2.When installing the new side sill reinforcement parts, use only the side sill reinforcement outer rear and the side sill bulkhead A.
3.After installing the side sill reinforcement, install the side sill end plate and the quarter inner front extension lower.


4.When assembling the new front floor side sill outer parts, carry out the following procedure.
(1) Machine the body loose panel cushion (MR565301 or MR435765) for replacement as shown and apply it to the body side because the sound dampening foam material cannot be filled into the centre pillar.
(2) Apply body sealant in the area shown in the figure of the front floor side sill outer.
