  • "you make the call" - side impact decision point #2

    Anyone have any pro/con input as to decision point 2 in this scenario where (after the front hinges of the passenger door are taken) the B-post is cut before opening the back door?

    I was instructed to open the doors at their ends, then either cut the top of the B-post and lay it down, or cut the top and bottom of the B-post to completely remove the assembly... Or... Is there no significant difference and it's all a matter of preference and situation

    I would think it would alter the strength of the B post making it hard to open the back door. No structural integrity any more.

      We have tried it both ways and have found that it is EXTREMELY diffcult to remove the rear door after you've cut the "B" post.

      Take the doors and then cut the "B".
