Cosmetic Panel Alignment - AOM 002

ID: AOM 002

This module is about the alignment of panels to ensure that the panels (i.e. gaps) are aligned to the correct specification. The candidate will need to protect the vehicle before working on the vehicle, remove a bolted panel (hinged or fixed) from a vehicle without damage, ensuring that the panel is stored correctly to prevent damage before refitting the panel to the vehicle. This will involve the use of vehicle specification information. The candidate will also have to ensure that any locks and catches that require adjustment are aligned to the correct settings to provide the correct opening and closing of the panel.
