GUIDE TO ESTIMATINGBOLTED-ON PARTSThe phrase “BOLTED-ON PARTS” referenced in this publicationrefers to mechanically fastened components that are directlyattached to the component that is being replaced and includesbraces, brackets, mounts, shields, extensions, interior trim, etc.Mechanical fasteners may include bolts, nuts, screws, clips andrivets.ESTIMATING SEQUENCEListed under each basic assembly are the related and component parts. List the damage according to the basic assembly, taking the basic item first. Then, starting from the outside of the vehicle and working inward, list everything attached to it which is damaged. By following this procedure, you will make a more thoroughinspection.For instance, on an estimate involving front fender damage,inspect as shown:FendermoldingnameplateemblemFender LinerFOOTNOTESFootnotes are used to present information specific to the indicated component or operation. Footnotes are not intended to beused in place of service repair information.PART PRICESPrices used in MOTOR Crash Estimating Data are factory suggested list prices, as supplied to us by the manufacturer.

GUIDE TO ESTIMATINGMOTOR Collision Estimating Data is based on the base modelvehicle configuration, standard or regular production options,and/or standard replacement operations. "Add if required" operations are for extra procedures necessitated by optional factoryequipment or certain collision scenarios that may be encountered."Add if required" operations should be added to the estimatewhenever applicable after an "on the spot" inspection of vehicledamage and/or vehicle options.COMPONENT CLASSIFICATIONThe purpose of classifying components is to describe physicalproperties of the component, and classifications may inform theestimator that specialized technician skill levels and/or tools maybe required. Indicators are not intended to determine labor ratescharged, or to be inclusive of all components. Any additional component classification(s) should be determined after an on-the-spotevaluation of required repair procedures.CLASSIFICATION INDICATORS ARE PROVIDED FORYOUR CONVENIENCE AND MUST ONLY BE CONSIDEREDA HELPFUL GUIDE.MOTOR component classifications are defined as follows:(M) Mechanical: Components that transform one form ofmotion or energy into another. Mechanical components would likely be serviced at a mechanical service facility rather than a bodyrepair facility if that component failed during normal operation.Mechanical components will likely require a specialized technicianskill level and/or specialized tools.(S) Structural: Components that provide a load bearing foundation for the purpose of safety and/or stability(no classification) Body: Components that do not fall underthe mechanical or structural classificationD&R (Disconnect & Reconnect)Some labor procedures require disconnecting (unplug and/orunbolt) of a component/assembly at the point where it is attachedto the subject part. The component assembly is not completelyremoved from the vehicle. The component is reconnected duringthe assembly procedure. Due to various configurations and type ofparts that may be involved in the D&R operations and consideringthat the times involved are generally not definable in tenths ofhours, time for D&R is not provided. When D&R is necessary toperform a labor operation, it is included in that labor operation’stime.FRAME MACHINE SET-UPDue to the different types of frame machines used in the collision repair industry, labor times for frame machine set-up are notdeveloped by MOTOR, nor otherwise included in any operation.Each frame machine manufacturer may have its own unique configurations and setup processes. For example, some machines areof a “drive-on” type while others are of a “dedicated bench” type,and there are procedural differences between the two set-up methods. Additionally, there may be variables unique to the actual vehicle that may increase or decrease frame machine set-up time.MOTOR suggests using an on-the-spot evaluation to determine anappropriate frame machine set-up time.REV. 8-16INCLUDED and/or NOT INCLUDED LABOROPERATIONSINCLUDED OPERATIONS:When items or operations appear in the Guide to Estimatingpages under the “Included” heading it means that the operation isperformed in conjunction with another operation. For example,Steering Wheel R&I is an individual operation, but when replacinga steering column, steering wheel R&I is also performed and therefore included in Steering Column R&R.If an item is listed without a qualifier, it means all labor has beenconsidered within the indicated labor procedure. If a specific qualifier (such as R&I) appears, it means only the specified qualifierapplies.NOT INCLUDED OPERATIONS:Items or operations listed under “Does Not Include” were notconsidered in the development of published labor operation times.These operations may or may not be required depending upon thevehicle or repair process used. If any of these items or operationsare required, they should be considered by the estimator. If a specific qualifier (such as R&I) appears, it means only the specifiedqualifier applies.NAGS - GLASS PRICESGlass Prices: We include, when available, both the vehicle manufacturer and the NAGS benchmark prices as applicable to eachmake and model. All NAGS part numbers and benchmark pricesare provided from National Auto Glass Specifications, a division ofMitchell International, Inc. Labor operation times listed on the linewith the NAGS information are MOTOR suggested labor operationtimes; NAGS labor operation times are not included.OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer)Used to define original vehicle manufacturer.OVERHAULRemove an assembly from the vehicle, disassemble, clean,inspect, replace parts as needed, reassemble, install and adjust(except wheel/suspension alig
