RDX L4-2.3L Turbo (2008)
Front Bumper: Description and Operation
Door and Bumper Reinforcement Beams
Door reinforcement beams used on RDX vehicles are made from a metal equivalent to high strength steel.
If high strength steel is heated, the strength of the steel will be reduced. If high strength steel is damaged, for example, in an accident, and the door
reinforcement beams are bent, the beams may crack when attempting to straighten them. If a door beam is damaged, the whole door panel assembly
should be replaced.
Front and rear bumper reinforcement beams are made with aluminum alloy. For this reason, the bumper reinforcement beams should NEVER be
repaired; they should be replaced if they are damaged.
