Body Repair Manual
This Body Repair Manual provides detailed repair procedures
for repair of commonly damaged structural panels on the
2008 i30 / ELANTRA NEOS(FD). To aid in the information of
the damaged vehicle, body construction, body dimensions,
Body Panel Repair Procedure, Body Sealing Locations,
Corrosion Protection, Body Modification Tools and Plastic
Parts are contained herein.
The repair procedures specify locations where body mem-
bers may be structurally sectioned.
All of the repair procedures have been performed on i30 /
ELANTRA NEOS(FD) body shells and that is currently
available in most auto body repair shops.
The repair procedures illustrated in this manual were devel-
oped to simplify body repair in order to reduce insurance
costs, and indirectly, cost of ownership.
The vehicle should not be sectioned in locations other than
those illustrated in this repair manual. Furthermore, these
repair procedures DO NOT apply to any other vehicle. The
individuals performing the work must assume full responsibil-
ity for the quality of their workmanship.
We believe this manual to be helpful for Hyundai dealers, and
anticipate it to be effectively used for Hyundai vehicle bodies.
For the services of other than collision-damaged body parts
of the i30 / ELANTRA NEOS(FD), refer to the i30 / ELANTRA
NEOS(FD) shop manual.
The illustrations and descriptive text in this manual were
corrected at the time of printing.

ously improve its products.
