Bumper Beams

Bumper beams are typically constructed of HS (high-strength) or stronger class steel. If the bumper beam shows evidence of a kink or tear it is not repairable and must be replaced. The use of heat to repair these components is not allowed and will result in weakening the component. Minor damage made be corrected through cold straightening only.
