The Audatex system provides vehicle manufacturers’ times for removal, refit and replacement as published in their workshop manuals.
The source of our data remains the vehicle manufacturers who directly supply our International Data Development Centres with methods/times.
Additional Person Allowance
The vehicle manufacturer’s time is the total time required to perform the operation, irrespective of how many people might be required for the operation.
Where there are references to additional resources/people in the repair method, the published time will already recognise and include any allowance there may be for that additional resource.
