CURTAIN SHIELD AIRBAG ASSEMBLY(for Sedan) DISPOSAL

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Tech Tips


  • When scrapping a vehicle equipped with the SRS or disposing of the curtain shield airbag, be sure to 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.

  • Use the same procedure for the RH and LH sides.

  • The procedure listed below is for the LH side.

CAUTION:


  • Never dispose of a curtain shield airbag that has an unactivated airbag.

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

  • 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 (32.8 ft.) away from the curtain shield airbag.

  • The curtain shield airbag 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 curtain shield airbag with a deployed airbag.

  • Do not apply water, etc. to a curtain shield airbag with a deployed airbag.

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

  • 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.
