Front Wheelhouse Replacement

Removal Procedure

1. Remove panels and components as necessary for access. 2. Restore as much of the damage as possible to the factory specifications. 3. Remove all sealers and anti-corrosion materials as necessary. 4. Place a piece of 25 mm (1 in) wide masking tape (Fig. 3-1), on the forward contour of the wheelhouse at the flange where it attaches to the cowl panel. 5. Cut the wheelhouse along the forward edge of the masking tape to leave a 25 mm (1 in) tab extending forward from the cowl panel. (This will provide an overlap for welding the service part to the original wheelhouse, without welding directly to the cowl panel.) 6. Locate, mark, and drill out the factory welds which attach the wheelhouse assembly at the: Upper rail inner panel Cowl panel Radiator support Lower front rails 7. Remove the damaged wheelhouse assembly.

Installation Procedure

1. Clean and prepare surfaces to be welded. 2. Cut the flange off the service part that is normally welded to the cowl panel (Fig. 3-2). 3. Drill 8 mm (5/16 in) holes for plug welding in the locations noted from the original assembly. Also drill holes for plug welding every 40 mm (1-1/2 inches) along the cut edge to be attached to the tab remaining from the original assembly. CAUTION: Watch for flammable materials when welding to the interior panels of the vehicle. 4. Position the wheelhouse assembly using three-dimensional measuring equipment. 5. Plug weld the wheelhouse as necessary. 6. Clean and prepare all bare metal surfaces. Apply as necessary: Sealers and anti-corrosion materials Sound deadeners Two-part catalyzed primer Top-coat

Front Lower Rail Sectioning
Sectioning procedures have been developed to help simplify repair of the lower rails provided the majority of damage can be returned to factory specifications. This allows technicians to repair the damaged front section without the need for a complete rail replacement. Sectioning of the lower rail does not require the removal of the power train, though the front cradle must be lowered. To begin, remove all related components and panels. Visually inspect and restore as much of the damage as possible to factory specifications. Also, for right side repair it may be necessary to remove the alternator and air conditioning compressor. NOTICE: Inner and outer sectioning templates are available for the following parts: Left lower rail original part; Right lower rail original part; Left lower rail service part; Right lower rail service part. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO USE THE CORRECT TEMPLATE WHEN MARKING LINES FOR CUTTING.
Fig. 3-3 Align Templates and Cut the Lower Rail

Remove or Disconnect

1. Align the appropriate inner and outer templates on the damaged lower rail and mark lines as indicated. There are two templates for the left rail and two templates for the right rail (Fig. 3-3). 2. Cut the rail along the marked lines and remove the damaged portion of the rail (Fig. 3-3). 3. Cut and remove approximately 20 mm (3/4 in) of the outboard and downward turned flanges of the lower rail. Cut a 5 mm gap approximately 20 mm (3/16 in) along the corners of the lower rail to create tabs. (Fig. 3-4) 4. Step the tabs inward to allow the replacement lower rail section to fit over the original rail (Fig. 3-5). Weld all four edges together.

Technical specifications

Full description

StrongArm gas charged lift supports are custom engineered and manufactured beyond industry standards to provide smooth operation and durability. The hardened chromium plated steel shaft is precision ground and polished for superior corrosion resistance and leak free sealing. The self cleaning piston assembly automatically opens during each compression cycle to keep the orifice clear of fluid contaminants and provide smoother operation and reliable performance. Most units also utilize StrongArm's patented temperature compensation module valve which ensures consistent operation even in extreme weather conditions. It does so by compensating for normal gas pressure changes caused by temperature variations. The metallic upper bushing is manufactured with bearing quality precision to provide exact fit with pistion rod and promote a long operating life.
