I - MAIN REFERENCE POINTS BEFORE TRIM-SETTING

1 - Front sub-frame in place

Renault Clio. Vehicle on repair bench: Description

The jig crowns the front sub-frame rear mounting bolt (A).

Use this situation for a rear impact or a light frontal impact without removal of the mechanical components.

2 - Front mechanical components removed

Renault Clio. Vehicle on repair bench: Description

The jig rests under the sub-frame mounting unit and is centred in the threaded hole (B).

Use this situation for a frontal impact with removal of the mechanical components.

Note: If it is suspected that one of these points may be deformed, use two additional points located in an area not affected by the impact in order to confirm trim-setting.

II - SECONDARY FRONT TRIM-SETTING REFERENCE POINT

Renault Clio. Vehicle on repair bench: Description

The body jig covers radiator mounting cross member mounting bolt (C).

Use this situation to confirm the trim-setting following a rear impact, (e.g.: to replace a rear side member assembly).

It is used to confirm the vehicle level in case of doubt about the deformation of a main rear reference point.

III - MAIN REAR TRIM-SETTING REFERENCE POINT

1 - Rear mechanical components in place

Renault Clio. Vehicle on repair bench: Description

The jig supports the underside of the rear axle fork and is centred in rear axle mounting bolt tapped hole (D).

Use this situation for a frontal impact or a light rear impact.

2 - Rear mechanical components removed

Renault Clio. Vehicle on repair bench: Description

The jig rests under the rear side member and is centred in the tapped hole (E).

Use this situation for a rear impact with removal of the mechanical components.

Note: If it is suspected that one of these points may be deformed, use two additional points located in an area not affected by the impact in order to confirm trim-setting.

IV - SECONDARY REAR TRIM-SETTING REFERENCE POINT

Renault Clio. Vehicle on repair bench: Description

The jig rests under the rear side member and is positioned in square hole (F).

Use this situation to confirm the trim-setting following a frontal impact (e.g.: to replace a complete front half unit).

It is used to confirm the vehicle trim setting in case of doubt about the deformation of a main front reference point.
