Robert,

As bad as this vehicle is in your database I am absolutely amazed that this does not have far more urgency on it. I have been able to communicate almost daily with Chrysler and I have obtained an overwhelming amount of information regarding this issue. Your data is so skewered is could not even be classified as close. Your theory and process of establishing the data is even more concerning. This issue alone is costing claimants and insured thousands on each claim,

With all your credentials displayed so proudly on your signature it only concerns me more that this is not being expedited.

I anxiously await your resolution to this issue. I believe you will se how embarrassing this is especially for a provider like Audatex that develops its repair data from the inside out....

Sincerely,

Mark, To date we have been unable to obtain any information directly from Chrysler and are presently in process of locating a vehicle to perform a field audit on. We will reply back as soon as the audit is completed and any necessary adjustments have been made.

Dan,

Have you heard anything?

I am deep into this and can gaurantee you that Audatex has overlooked many items in this process.

Please let me know where this stands

Thanks

Dan,

Attached is a photo of the "lower panel" or "Rear Body Panel Reinforcement" as Audatex references it. Can you tell me how the right and left ends of the panel are accessed without cutting the entire rear apart? I think you can see at least one end in the picture for reference. Inside of the panel the welded floor pan is within 2 inches of the panel.

I am not sure you and I are focused on the same situation and if you could call me or I could call you it might be better.

By the way I researched Chrysler and there are no OEM service procedures for this panel on their website.

Mark,
We have reviewed the OEM service procedure for rear body panel replacement of (g/n's 335/315) and according to the procedure we have
addressed all the required tasks necessary to complete the total operation. I have attached a labor report of theses two guide numbers which show the included task to remove the rear bumper assembly and allowing 4.9hrs of welding time for the two panels. At the present time based on this service
procedure we feel the labor time is sufficient. No other changes warranted at this time.

Thanks,
Dan Laurino
