Body for your vehicle: important for selection

Car body parts: functions, failures, repair and replacement

Body parts comprise various elements which make up the outer shell of a car. The driver, passengers, their luggage or cargo, as well as many assemblies and major vehicle components, are inside the body.

Main types

By material:

  • Steel. They usually have a relatively low price and are durable. Such car parts are quite easy to repair. However, they are prone to corrosion and heavy.
  • Aluminium. They are more expensive to produce than the steel ones but they reduce the weight of the car significantly. Besides, they feature high corrosion resistance.
  • Plastic. Such components are elastic and dampen impacts and vibration. They do not deteriorate when exposed to moisture and are lightweight. They can be sensitive to the temperature changes and are less durable than metal components.
  • Carbon fibre. They feature an optimal combination of durability, lightness, and elasticity. However, they cost a lot.

Not all these materials are interchangeable: for example, reinforcement elements are made of high-strength steel only. And bumpers are almost always made of plastic these days.

Main components and performance features of car body parts

Each of them has its functions. For example, reinforcement bars and ribs, frame side and cross-members are load-bearing elements. They are intended to absorb the impact of a collision and protect the people inside the car from injuries. Pillars are needed to support the roof and also act as a base for attaching doors and other components. The bonnet protects the engine compartment from dust, dirt, moisture and negative environmental impacts. The boot lid has similar functions.

Spoilers improve aerodynamic characteristics of a vehicle. The grille prevents the radiator from getting damaged by foreign objects hurled the wheels during driving and doesn’t obstruct the airflow. Besides, among body parts, there are a lot of decorative elements which improve the vehicle’s appearance rather than performance. For example, these are various chrome frames.

Most common malfunctions

  • Dents might appear on car body panels, wings, bonnet or boot lid due to strong impact in a collision.
  • The paintwork might get scratched and chipped, usually, because of slipshod washing, driving off-road, hitting foreign objects hurled by the wheels while driving.
  • Metal elements may rust if they weren’t treated with anti-corrosion compounds, if the vehicle is kept outdoors or in a room with poor ventilation, or when exposed to road chemicals.

Proven ways to extend the service life of car body parts

Clean dirt from the body parts regularly but never use a dry cloth for that. Wax your car occasionally for protection and once in a few years apply an anti-corrosion compound to the underbody. Scratches and chips on the paint should be eliminated at once to avoid corrosion.

What you must know about repairing body parts

There are a lot of ways to repair body parts. For example, dents are removed with the help of straightening. If possible, vacuum equipment is used which allows eliminating the damage without painting. The problem with chipped paintwork can be solved with the help of touch-up paint. Welding is also widely used when repairing body parts. Small scratches are sanded and polished. Rust spots should also be sanded, treated with a special compound and painted if necessary.
