PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

After a collision where only the seat belt pretensioners deployed, replace these items and all accompanying fasteners:
• Any seat belt that has a deployed pretensioner, and the accompanying buckle
• Any 2nd row seat belts and buckles that were in use during the collision
• Pyrotechnic battery disconnect fuse [IGNITER,BATTERY INTERRUPT]
NOTE: Do not replace the fuse until confirming that the vehicle is supported (not salvage) and will be repaired; until then, use the temporary pyrotechnic fuse provided by Tesla, if necessary (refer to BR-15-00-001, “Using a Temporary Pyrotechnic Fuse” for more information).
• PSRCM (Passive Safety Restraints Control Module) [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL]
• All hardware that attaches the above components

After a collision where the front air bag(s) deployed, replace these items and all accompanying fasteners:
• All deployed airbags [AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL; AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL; AIRBAG,KNEE BOLSTER]
• Any 1st row seat belt that has a deployed pretensioner, and the accompanying buckle
• Steering wheel assembly (if the driver air bag deployed)
• Any 2nd or 3rd row seat belts and buckles that were in use during the collision
• Pyrotechnic battery disconnect fuse [IGNITER,BATTERY INTERRUPT]
NOTE: Do not replace the fuse until confirming that the vehicle is supported (not salvage) and will be repaired; until then, use the temporary pyrotechnic fuse provided by Tesla, if necessary (refer to BR-15-00-001, “Using a Temporary Pyrotechnic Fuse” for more information).
• PSRCM (Passive Safety Restraints Control Module) [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL]
• All hardware that attaches the above components

After a collision where the side air bag(s) deployed, replace these items and all accompanying fasteners:
• All deployed airbags [AIRBAG & SEAT ASSY,FRT; AIRBAG,ROOF]
• Any seat belt that has a deployed pretensioner, and the accompanying buckle
• The complete 1st or 2nd row seat assembly that contains the deployed airbag [AIRBAG & SEAT ASSY,FRT]
• Any 2nd or 3rd row seat belts and buckles that were in use during the collision
• Pyrotechnic battery disconnect fuse [IGNITER,BATTERY INTERRUPT]
NOTE: Do not replace the fuse until confirming that the vehicle is supported (not salvage) and will be repaired; until then, use the temporary pyrotechnic fuse provided by Tesla, if necessary (refer to BR-15-00-001, “Using a Temporary Pyrotechnic Fuse” for more information).
• PSRCM (Passive Safety Restraints Control Module) [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL]
• All hardware that attaches the above components

PARTS THAT MUST BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF DAMAGED

After any collision:
• Inspect the harnesses and harness connectors that connect to all deployed airbags and pretensioners. Replace any damaged harnesses.
• Inspect the harnesses and harness connectors that connect to all damaged components. Replace any damaged harnesses.
• Inspect the 3rd row seat (if equipped) and seat belts for visible deformation or signs of wear on the webbing.
• Inspect the crash sensor(s) near the collision area for damage. Crash sensors are mounted to the front bumper carrier, B-pillars, C-pillars, and front doors. If the sensor is damaged, replace the sensor, the harness connector that connects to it, and the hardware that secures it to the body. [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRONT; AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR; AIRBAG SENSOR,SIDE; AIRBAG SENSOR,QTR PANEL]
• On any undeployed knee airbag: Inspect the knee airbag cover for visible signs of damage in the tearseam area. Make sure that there are fewer than 3 consecutive broken ridges, or fewer than 5 broken bridges total. If the knee air bag cover is damaged, replace the complete knee airbag assembly
• Inspect the 2nd row seat belts for visible deformation in the seat belt system, especially around the D-ring area where the seat belt webbing passes through the seat shoulder.
• If the collision area includes the LH D-pillar area, inspect the crash sensor mounted near the charge port. If the sensor is damaged, replace the sensor, the harness connector that connects to it, and the hardware that secures it to the body.
• Inspect the 2nd row outboard seats, seat belts, and retractors with pretensioners for visible signs of deformation or signs of wear. Replace all 3 seat assemblies if any are damaged.
• Inspect the height adjuster in the 1st row (behind the B-pillar trim) for signs of wear or deformation.
• Inspect the 2nd row seat posts for full-range of movement (seat pitch, ease of entry, and tracking motion). If any of the following conditions occur while inspecting, replace the seat post and seat assemblies:
-Failure to travel the expected range
-Unusual "metal on metal" noise during movement
-Actuator strain at any point
• Inspect the following components for cracks only if the seat was occupied during a collision:
-Seat pivot (remove the seat's lower trim to inspect)
-Angle bracket (remove the seat's back trim and seat podium cover)

• Use Toolbox to test the supplementary restraint system for proper operation.

Additionally, after a collision where the driver airbag deployed:
• Inspect the clock spring for melting or other physical damage.
• Inspect the top of the steering column. The tabs areas move toward the front of the vehicle as the steering column collapses. If the tabs are more than 2 mm away from the carrier, replace the steering column.
• Adjust the steering column so that the column shaft is fully retracted inside of the housing. Measure the C-channels on the side of the steering column. If the left C-channel is recessed more than 2.1 mm into the housing, or the right C-channel is fewer than 19.5 mm from the housing, replace the steering column.
