Inquiry Description Resolution Description
Fabrication of Sleeve
IssueSummary//It has been brought to my attention by a Insurance company that "fabricate sleeves/inserts" is INCLUDED when sectioning or replaceing(if needed on replaceing) a weld on panel regardless of which panel.
The insurance company is aware of the P page statement but state that "if fabricating sleeves/inserts is only NOT included if you fabricate those parts from RAW stock, if you fabricate those parts from the original or replacement part, new or LKQ, it is INCLUDED.
IP Explanation
This issue is addressed in the database reference manual, see attached page.

From Audatex Database Reference Manual:
Audatex labor allowances include time to fabricate sleeves when they can be made from existing parts. If the sleeve needs to be fabricated from raw stock, the time to fabricate the sleeve is not included.
