Recent DEG Inquiry 11920 discovered a CCC error in the system which will require users to perform manual entry to allocate correct labor times.
Radiator replacement time includes to R/I cooling fan shroud as an assembly with the motor and fan blade still attached.

When having to replace an individual component of the cooling fan, the part may come up as included or with a standalone time which may also include another component of the cooling fan part. If this occurs, the estimator would need to make manual line consideration for additional labor times.

Always refer to the part selection footnotes and the CEG Guide to ensure labor is being assigned correctly.

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.
