SCRS Members,

LKQ Estimating Guides When replacing a component  with an LKQ or used part it is important that you follow the recycled estimating guide for your system or you will likely not be capturing necessary labor items that are associated with the use of LKQ parts.
CCC/Motor utilize the RACE guide and it can be found here.

Audatex shows Recycled included and not included operations in Audatex Database Reference Manual.

Mitchell does not print a separate guide for recycled assemblies but they can be found within the estimating system.

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.
