PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

When any deployable device or combination of devices have deployed and/or the RCM has DTC B1193:00 (Event Threshold Exceeded) in memory, the repair of the vehicle SRS is to include the removal of all deployed devices and the installation of new deployable devices, the removal and installation of new impact sensors and the removal and installation of a new RCM:

When the driver air bag module has deployed, a new clockspring must be installed.

If a side seat air bag deployment took place, install a new seat backrest foam pad, backrest cover, deployment chute and side air bag module and nuts. Replace the seat backrest frame if necessary.

New driver safety belt systems (including retractors, buckles, anchors and height adjusters) must be installed if the vehicle is involved in a collision that results in deployment of the driver safety belt pretensioners.

New front passenger safety belt systems (including retractors, buckles, anchors and height adjusters) must be installed if the vehicle is involved in a collision that results in deployment of the front passenger safety belt pretensioners.

New second row safety belt systems (including retractors, buckles and inflators) must be installed if the vehicle is involved in a collision that results in deployment of the rear inflatable safety belt system.

Install new safety belt(s) at any seating position(s) where deployment has occurred and the safety belt(s) were used.

Anytime the Safety Canopy or side air curtain has deployed, a new headliner and new roof pillar upper trim panels with attaching hardware must be installed

PARTS THAT MUST BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF DAMAGED

When any damage to the impact sensor mounting points or mounting hardware has occurred, repair or install new mounting points and mounting hardware as needed

Inspect the entire vehicle for damage, including the following components:
• Steering column (deployable column if equipped)
• Instrument panel knee bolsters and mounting points
• Safety Canopy® and mounting points
• Instrument panel braces and brackets
• Instrument panel and mounting points
• Seats and seat mounting points
• All Safety belts, safety belt buckles, safety belt retractors and safety belt anchors.
• Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) wiring, wiring harnesses and connectors

After a crash, all of the following second and third row safety belt components and attaching hardware must be inspected and tested to verify correct function:
• Retractors
• Buckles
• Child safety seat tether bracket assemblies
• Automatic locking retractor (ALR) feature for child safety seats (passenger seating positions only)
• Inflatable safety belt systems

Before installing the new safety belt assembly, the safety belt attaching areas must be inspected for damage and distortion. If the attaching points are damaged and distorted, the sheet metal must be reworked back to its original shape and structural integrity

Before installing a Safety Canopy or side air curtain assembly, inspect the roofline for any damage. If necessary, the sheet metal must be reworked to its original condition and structural integrity.

After carrying out the review and inspection of the entire vehicle for damage, repair or install new components as needed
