FRONT SEAT SIDE AIRBAG ASSEMBLY(for 5 Door) DISPOSAL

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

CAUTION:

Before performing pre-disposal deployment of any SRS component, review and closely follow all applicable environmental and hazardous material regulations. Pre-disposal deployment may be considered hazardous material treatment.

Tech Tips

When scrapping a vehicle equipped with the SRS or disposing of a front seat side airbag assembly, deploy the airbag first in accordance with the procedure described below. If any abnormality occurs with the airbag deployment, contact the SERVICE DEPT. of the DISTRIBUTOR.

CAUTION:


  • An airbag or pretensioner may be activated by static electricity. To prevent this, be sure to touch a metal surface with bare hands to discharge static electricity before performing this procedure.

  • Never dispose of a front seat side airbag assembly that has an undeployed airbag.

  • The airbag emits an exploding sound when it is deployed, so perform the operation outdoors, and where it will not create a nuisance to nearby residents.

  • A01VHPSE01

    When deploying the airbag, always use the specified SST (SRS Airbag Deployment Tool). Perform the operation in a place away from electrical noise.

  • When deploying the airbag, perform the operation at least 10 m (33 ft) away from the front seat side airbag assembly.

  • The front seat side airbag assembly becomes extremely hot when the airbag is deployed, so do not touch it for at least 30 minutes after deployment.

  • Use gloves and safety glasses when handling a front seat side airbag assembly with a deployed airbag.

  • Do not apply water, etc. to a front seat side airbag assembly with a deployed airbag.

  • Always wash your hands with water after completing the operation.

PROCEDURE

      Stripped Wire Harness Section
      Area Measurement
      A

      1.25 mm2(0.0019 in.2) or more

      CAUTION:

      Do not use a wire harness that is too thin or any other object to tie the curtain shield airbag assembly because it may snap due to the shock when the airbag is deployed. Always use a wire harness for vehicle use with a cross section of at least 1.25 mm2(0.0019 in.2).

      Tech Tips

      To calculate the area of the stripped wire section:

      Area = 3.14 x (Diameter)2/ 4


      1. A01VLCB

        Install the 2 nuts to the front seat side airbag assembly.

      2. A01VLP3

        Wind the wires around the stud bolts of the front seat side airbag assembly as shown in the illustration.

      3. A01VFVBE02

        Position the front seat side airbag assembly inside the tire.

        Tire Size
        Area Measurement
        A 185 mm (7.28 in.)
        B 360 mm (14.17 in.)

        CAUTION:


        • Make sure that the wires are tight. If there is slack in the wires, the front seat side airbag assembly may break loose when the airbag is deployed.

        • Face the front seat side airbag assembly deployment surface toward the inside the tire to evenly distribute the force of deployment.

        Note

        The tire will be marked by the airbag deployment, so use a waste tire.

    4. Connect SST.


      1. A01VH15E01

        Connect the SST connector to the front seat side airbag assembly connector.

        SST

    5. A01VK34E01

      Place the tires.

      Text in Illustration
      *1 Tires (2 or more)

      1. Place at least 2 tires under the tire to which the front seat side airbag assembly is tied.

      2. Place at least 2 tires onto the tire to which the front seat side airbag assembly is tied. The top tire should have a wheel installed.

        Note


        • Do not place SST connector under the tire because it could be damaged.

        • As the disc wheel will be marked by the airbag deployment, use a waste disc wheel.

        • As the tires will be marked by the airbag deployment, use waste tires.

      3. A01VFYZ

        Tie the tires together with the 2 wires.

        CAUTION:

        Make sure that the wires are tight. Looseness in the wires results in the tires breaking loose when the airbag is deployed.
