SCRS Members,

Audatex Recycled Parts Time - When replacing a recycled part in Audatex, it is important to follow the recycled parts time in the Audatex DBRM. Unlike other estimating systems or guides, Audatex lists the included and not included items for new and recycled parts in the same area of the DBRM, just different column. Below is a screenshot showing an example:

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.
