Estimated Release Date: Closed Proposed Resolution: MOTOR stated: After review of the concern, the estimated work time applied to R&I Engine/Trans includes all necessary disconnections and connections as stated in the OEM service procedure. Additional DEG Note: https://deg-heroku-18.herokuapp.com/inquiries/16131 Estimated Release Date: Closed Proposed Resolution: MOTOR stated: After review of the MOTOR data, the estimated work time applied to a Lift Gate includes time to disconnect and reconnect the Internal Wiring. • Please note; if the Lift Gate has internal wiring standard, it is considered an included item with R&R Lift Gate. This is also true for the Doors/Trunk/Hatch/Tail Gate/Hood/Bumper etc. • If the component/assembly has a “Pigtail Wiring Harness” that is contained in the component/assembly and disconnects from the “Body” (Body Wiring Harness) it is included with the component/assembly labor time. • If the component/assembly has a wiring harness that extends into the Vehicle’s Body without a disconnect point (wiring is part of Body Wiring Harness), D&R from the component/assembly is included, however the balance that remains in the Body is not included. • Replacement times for Body Wiring Harness or Engine Wiring Harness are not developed by MOTOR Information Systems as they are usually repaired instead of fully replaced. In the event that the Body Wiring Harness or Engine Wiring Harness must be completely replaced, an “on the spot evaluation” must be employed to determine the degree of access and the replacement time must be negotiated between estimators.
