FRONT SEAT OUTER BELT ASSEMBLY DISPOSAL

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note

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 vehicles equipped with a seat belt pretensioner or disposing of a seat belt (with a seat belt pretensioner), always deploy the procedures described below. If any abnormality occurs during deployment of the seat belt pretensioner, contact the service dept. of the distributor.

PROCEDURE


  1. DISPOSE OF FRONT SEAT OUTER BELT ASSEMBLY (When Installed in Vehicle)

    CAUTION:


    • Use gloves and safety glasses when handling a seat belt with a deployed pretensioner.

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

    • Do not apply water, etc. to a seat belt with a deployed pretensioner.

    • When deploying a seat belt pretensioner, always use the specified SST (SRS airbag deployment tool). Perform the operation in a place away from electrical interference.

    • When disposing of a seat belt with a pretensioner, never deploy the pretensioner in the customer's vehicle.

    Note


    • Never dispose of a front seat outer belt assembly with a pretensioner that has not been deployed.

    • The seat belt produces an exploding sound when the pretensioner deploys, so perform the operation outdoors where it will not disturb local residents.

    • When deploying a seat belt pretensioner, perform the operation at least 10 m (33 ft.) away from the seat belt.

    • Be sure to follow the procedure listed below when deploying a seat belt pretensioner.

      2. Connect the red clip of SST to the 12 V battery positive (+) terminal and the black clip to the 12 V battery negative (-) terminal.

      3. Press the SST deployment switch to deploy the seat belt pretensioner.

        Tech Tips

        The seat belt pretensioner will deploy at the same time as the LED of SST illuminates.

    5. A005E24

      Dispose of the seat belt.


      1. Remove the front seat outer belt assembly and SST.

      2. Place the seat belt in a plastic bag, tie the end tightly, and dispose of it in the same way as other general parts.

        CAUTION:


        • The seat belt becomes very hot when the pretensioner is deployed, so leave it untouched for at least 30 minutes after the pretensioner is deployed.

        • Use gloves and safety glasses when handling a seat belt with a deployed pretensioner.

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

        • Do not apply water, etc. to a seat belt with a deployed pretensioner.
