SCRS Members,

When replacing a LKQ quarter panel in CCC, the labor time is for more than just the outer panel unless noted with a footnote. As seen in DEG inquiry 4817.

"Please note that replacing the OEM quarter panel and replacing a LKQ quarter assembly are 'apples and oranges' comparisons. According to the MOTOR Recycled Assemblies Guide To Estimating, page G29, "Assembly is serviced with quarter outer panel, quarter inner structure, wheelhouse, lock pillar and extensions." According to the OEM GTE, Page G22, "Quarter panel R&R times are generally based upon replacement at the factory seams."

If replacing a LKQ part in CCC, the RACE Guide from Motor should be utilized. This guide can be found on the DEG website, CCC-Motor
