We have reviewed the current OEM service information for the GLASS,REAR DOOR P (GN 0295/0296). The labor allowance for the GLASS,REAR DOOR P (GN 0295/0296) remains unchanged as all required operations have been considered according to the OEM service information and Audatex internal labor guidelines. Per the DBRM Audatex labor includes normal adjustment and alignment for correct fit, but does not include any duplicated effort. No change warranted at this time. "Any additional adjustments needed would have to be a manual entry as we have already accounted for a normal adjustment."
