FRONT PASSENGER AIRBAG ASSEMBLY DISPOSAL

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

CAUTION:

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

PROCEDURE

  1. PRECAUTION

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

    • Never dispose of an instrument panel passenger airbag assembly with an undeployed 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 instrument panel passenger airbag assembly.

    • The instrument panel passenger 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 an instrument panel passenger airbag assembly with a deployed airbag.

    • Do not apply water, etc. to an instrument panel passenger airbag assembly with a deployed airbag.

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

    Tip:

    When scrapping a vehicle equipped with an SRS or disposing of an instrument panel passenger airbag assembly, 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.

  2. DISPOSE OF INSTRUMENT PANEL PASSENGER AIRBAG ASSEMBLY (When Installed in Vehicle)

    Note:
    • When disposing of the instrument panel passenger airbag assembly, never use the customer's vehicle to deploy the airbag.

    • Be sure to observe the following procedure when deploying the airbag.

    Tip:

    Prepare a battery as the power source to deploy the airbag.

      Stripped wire cross sectional area

      Using braided wire, tie down the instrument panel passenger airbag assembly to an unneeded tire.

      Wire

      Stripped wire cross sectional area

      1.25 mm2 (0.0019 in.2) or more

      CAUTION:

      If the wire is too thin or an alternative object is used to tie down the instrument panel passenger airbag assembly, it may snap when the airbag is deployed. Always use a wire for vehicle use with a cross sectional area of at least 1.25 mm2 (0.0019 in.2).

      Tip:

      To calculate the cross sectional area of the stripped wire:

      Cross sectional area = 3.14 x (Diameter)2 / 4

      1. Position the instrument panel passenger airbag assembly inside the tire with the airbag deployment side facing inward.

        Minimum Tire Size

        Width

        185 mm (7.28 in.)

        Inner Diameter

        Width

        CAUTION:
        • Make sure that the wires are tight. If there is slack in the wires, the instrument panel passenger airbag assembly may break loose when the airbag is deployed.

        • Always tie down the instrument panel passenger airbag assembly with the airbag deployment side facing inside the tire as shown in the illustration.

        Note:

        The tire may be damaged by the airbag deployment, so use an unneeded tire.

    5. Place the tires.

        Tires (2 or more)

        *a

        Inner Diameter

        *b

        Width

        Place at least 2 tires under the tire to which the instrument panel passenger airbag assembly is tied.

        Minimum Tire Size

        Width

        185 mm (7.28 in.)

        Inner Diameter

        360 mm (1.18 ft.)

        Note:
        • The wheel and tires may be damaged by the airbag deployment, so use an unneeded wheel and tires.

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

      2. Place at least 2 tires onto the tire to which the instrument panel passenger airbag assembly is tied. The top tire should have a wheel installed.

      3. C223306

        Tie the tires together with 2 wires.

        CAUTION:

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