We have a 2019 Toyota that was sent over from the collision center! I've got my work cut out on this one. I ended up finding unknown body damage that HAD to be fixed. This video is part 2 of a series. If you missed part 1, check the link below!

    This is like a giant jackstraw. It will be very interesting to follow the reassembly, and see if Ray remembers where all these replacement parts fit in when they arrive.

    I always attempt to put bolts and nuts back on the separated pieces. Sure has helped me from losing nuts and bolts and forgetting where they belong.

    Just had the joy of removing a rear subframe from a Hyundai Tucson. They are so prone to rusting that new units from the factory come pre-rusted !!. The new unit has been sand blasted and vigorously repainted to give it a fighting chance

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JOSEPH HILBERT says:

    someone may have this already but a good idea use zip baggies for the nuts and bolts

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Tutty says:

    Well done indeed. I rather have to wonder whether anyone thought to chack the unibody for square and true. That kind of damage can wrack the body so the car looks okay, but it will never drive properly and it will eat tires until it is put on a frame straightener and hauled back into spec.

    My wife just did a Ha Ha, Oooh, doin it in the dark. Vid at the end.

    my company in Denmark just sold a 155mm impact socket weighing 64 pounds 🙂

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tonnymiller123 says:

    is there a reason that you use Snap-on tools?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jwest142 says:

    I’m thinking that the insurance company should have allowed you evaluate this before fixing it. You are amazing at what you do and I love your videos but with that much damage underneath I’m not sure I would ever trust it to be right again. No offense to you, just my observation. Keep up the great work and keep making the phone noises…lol

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BOFH402 says:

    Who would have thought watching a man properly diagnose issues, take apart cars, and put them back together would be so interesting. I think you have struck a nerve in the right to repair movement. That and you are just fun to watch.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FRED ROBERTS says:

    ONLY ONE QUESTION RAY IS THE LOCAL COLLISION CENTER NOT EQUIPED TO DO THIS TYPE OF WORK? WE KNOW YOU CAN DO IT, SEEMS A COLLISION CENTER WOULD BE ABLE TO DO A COMPLETE JOB ON ANY COLLISION REPAIR

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FRED ROBERTS says:

    SEEMS LIKE THIS JOB WAS ONE FOR A RELIABLE BODY SHOP,.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paublus Americanus AMERICANUS says:

    I wonder mightily about the purple bolts. Not every one you need to remove but almost. Either the customer had it apart or he races this car on a circuit.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rangerstl07 says:

    Ray, buddy, I am glad that Toyota decides to use large diameter bolts in their suspension components and ensure that they are installed very tightly…

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris English says:

    I am constantly amazed by how much you can get done with one hand and a 48" extension……. LMAO. Forgive my comments but I've been home nursing a wife with a broken back after her being rear ended by a semi and I've been binge watching your channel since I found it. That's quality content.'

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Ploeser says:

    Ray, Where/when did you first figure out/decide that you liked/could survive doing Automotive diagnostic Repairs? You certainly have the knack/talent!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Adelaide says:

    I'm surprised this car wasn't just written off by the insurer with the amount of bodywork and suspension damage.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Drcthru says:

    Why did this not go to a body shop?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Lilyea says:

    I did collision repair in Florida for 15 years and had my share of rusty snowbird's cars.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ed Lewis says:

    Our '14 Sonata looked like that in '16 on the driver's side, 17 yr old girl had problems understanding traffic flow driving mom's brand new Cherokee. She can-openered driver's side, looked awful, we hoped they'd total it. Qualified excellent body shop replaced 1/2 shaft, tie rod, wheels, 'new' junkyard doors and fender, even dog leg turned out like new. Crumple zone was fine, no engine or electrical intrusion… body shop was excellent, even we can't tell, still driving it, it's fine. Car never needed a thing outside of normal but I change oil myself WAY before schedule, always have.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Farmer Bill says:

    Surprised to see that ring on your finger. Great way to lose a digit.
    Best regards from Indiana.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Ziegler says:

    Huge parts pieces…

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cliff Davies says:

    Why not do as the factory does, build the new subframe on the ground then lift into place and bolt it in👍😃

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars K Kampy says:

    What I like about these is I feel like I'm there helping but my hands aren't getting dirty and I won't be stiff and sore tomorrow.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars F Huber says:

    4 part rebuild… They tore that thing up.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars E Reeves says:

    You should have put a jack stand under the front to keep the weight on the back. Luckily you didn't remove enough weight to tip it forward.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charlie Lambert says:

    Bag n tag brother

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy Anthony says:

    Omg. You just about ripped out the whole rear suspension.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MERICA2024 says:

    Damn no one gave you a hand with the sub frame, at the shop I work at if you need a hand there's always someone to help.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mork orson says:

    Just a question: With all the weight coming off the back should the front of the car be supported?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john donovan says:

    i want that tool!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Allan Haley says:

    Why are some of the bolts and nuts violet-colour? Or was that just a trick of the light.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Jankiewicz says:

    2 questions…lol. 1. What the hell did they hit? 2. Why wasn`t this car totaled? Have a great day Ray.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Gallagher says:

    Ugga Dugga’s??
    Someone is also watching South Main Auto!

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Austin says:

    It's the "wobbly bits" for with this guy 😂

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Severn says:

    Anyone have an answer about the purple bolts?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lawrence Lamson says:

    Tough built Toyota and easy to work with

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sherrod Ford says:

    Yo that's dope tools what it is called that you using to take off the exhaust hanger

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan Deitch says:

    This brings a whole new meaning to "front wheel drive"

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darkarvin Drakkar says:

    I wonder what's with all the purple bolts..?
