SCRS Members,

Not every Chipguard is the Same in Audatex - Replacing the chipguard on a vehicle may require additional operations that are specific to a vehicle. Audatex states, "Chipguard defines the Audatex automated formula for this operation. When special requirements are needed for a specific vehicle, the estimator would have to account for those requirements manually. No changes warranted at this time," DEG Inquiry 8452

The estimating databases are all intended to be used as a GUIDE ONLY - it is important to remember that the auto body professional performing the repair is in a position to thoroughly inspect, diagnose and identify the methodology and their unique cost of the vehicle damage repair.
