11/2019 CCC/MOTORS updated the “HEADLINER” section of the Guide to Estimating P Pages specifically calling out “Interior lower moldings/trim” being NOT INCLUDED as well as “weatherstrip r/I”.
Scenarios where this would be factored is if the lower trims overlap the upper trims touching the headliner. Additionally, some surround weather strips around door openings may be overlapped with additional trims to gain access to the upper trims touching the headliner. This would be NOT INCLUDED as per the GTE.
Lastly, H notes/ footnotes of specific operations would take precedence over the GTE pages.
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.
