CCC/ MOTORS: Updated P Pages GTE Guide – on November 1, CCC/MOTORS updated the P pages/GTE Guide online and within the CCC One estimating program. A live version of the CCC P Pages can be found at: https://help.cccis.com/webhelp/motor/gte/guide_Left.htm and a pdf copy can be found here: https://www.motor.com/wp-content/uploads/CED-GTE_20181008.pdf

The DEG has made a “Delta” Report of the changes/additions which can be found here: http://degweb.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/2018-P-Page-Update.pdf and more information about the changes can be found in a recent RDN article:  https://www.repairerdrivennews.com/2018/11/08/ccc-updates-motor-p-pages-with-new-details-on-scanning-painting/.

CCC/MOTOR: Deduct for Overlap Grille Labor – Recent Inquiry 12871 discovered that when grille R/I is being performed on bumper cover R/I or R/R labor, Deduct for Overlap is still being applied to the R/I grille labor when the time has already been adjusted to the R/I labor value based on the H Notes section.

Below is the response from CCC:

“It appears the attempt to allow the difference of labor time between R&R and R&I Grille is not working properly when the R&R Grille is selected with the R&R Bumper, and the bumper includes only the R&I grille per the footnote. This is causing a negative impact that was not identified initially. CCC does not currently have the ability to support the R&I portion of labor time being deducted from the R&R Grille time when selected with the R&R or O/H Bumper.

The overlap deduction currently in place will need to be removed, and this concern will be added to the backlog for further review when time permits.”

All Three Systems: ADAS Measurement Labor – Vehicles equipped with ADAS Blind Spot Monitor systems may have a procedure in the workshop manual to measure the mounting bracket position. This procedure can be labor intensive and require additional r/I work to access certain control points on the vehicle. Labor to measure, verify and repair – if needed – is NOT INCLUDED and should be determined by an on-the-spot evaluation.

Mitchell: Air Bag/SRS Component Inspection and Replacement Tables – Mitchell has published a comprehensive list of parts and inspections required after SRS/Airbag deployment. This information is available online here:  http://static.mymitchell.com/static/webhelp/ppages/abt/1033/index.htm.
