Removal

  WARNING: Electric vehicles damaged by a crash may have compromised high voltage safety systems and present a potential high voltage electrical shock hazard. Exercise caution and wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) safety gear, including high voltage safety gloves and boots. Remove all metallic jewelry, including watches and rings. Isolate the HV system as directed by the Ford Emergency Response Guide for the vehicle. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury or death.

NOTICE: The high-voltage battery in a Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) or Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) can be affected and damaged by excessively high temperatures. The temperature in some body shop paint booths can exceed 60° C (140° F). Therefore, during refinishing operations, the paint booth temperature must set at or below 60° C (140° F) with a bake time of 45 minutes or less. Temperatures in excess of 60° C (140° F) or bake durations longer than 45 minutes will require the high-voltage battery be removed from the vehicle prior to placing in the paint booth.

NOTICE: Electric Vehicle (EV), Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) and Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) vehicles contain a High Voltage Battery (HVB). Before welding near the HVB, the HVB must be removed to avoid heat damage.

NOTE: If extent of damage requires replacement of entire panel assembly, the roof panel must be removed.

NOTE: Left hand (LH) side shown, right hand (RH) side similar.

NOTE: The water drain panel is constructed of mild steel and may be sectioned provide no sectioning is performed within 50mm of restraint anchors or hinge reinforcements. The following procedure assumes full replacement, adjust to meet repair needs.
