Door and Bumper Reinforcement Beams
The door and bumper reinforcement beams used on Fit/Jazz vehicles are made from a metal equivalent to high-strength steel.
If high-strength steel is heated, the strength of the steel will be reduced. If high-strength steel is damaged, for example. In an accident, and the door and bumper reinforcement beams are bent, the beams may crack when attempting to straighten them. If a door beam is damaged, the whole door panel assembly should be replaced.
For this reason, the door and bumper reinforcement beams should NEVER be replaced; they should be replaced if they are damaged.
