Door and bumper reinforcement beams used on Honda vehicles are made from a metal equivalent to High Strength Steel
(Hss).
If HSS is heated, the strength of the steel will be reduced. If HSS is damaged, as in a vehicle accident, where the door and
bumper reinforcement beams are bent, the beams may crack if an attempt is made to straighten them.
For this reason, door and bumper reinforcement beams should NEVER be repaired; they should be replaced if they are
damaged.
NOTE: If a door beam is damaged, the whole door panel assembly should be replaced.
