Estimating Tip: Audatex – Additional Labor > Calibration/ Scanning Operations

Audatex has been adding various scanning/ calibration operations to the database that may be applicable to the vehicle being repaired. Users can select from pre-defined calibration/ scanning operations in the “Additional Labor” section of the Audatex Database. The system does NOT provide labor or sublet cost.

Please note, this is NOT a substitute for using OEM repair information directly from the vehicle manufacture, but rather a good place to reference if a calibration may be needed on repairs you are performing.

Audatex July update:

Scan and Calibration Project*:

– 422 files have been updated with scan and/or calibration operations.
– 222 files now have a calibration operation available on the windshield glass

The estimating databases are all intended to be used as a GUIDE ONLY – it is important to remember that the auto body professional performing the repair is in a position to thoroughly inspect, diagnose and identify the methodology and their unique cost of the vehicle damage repair.
