PARTS THAT MUST BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF DAMAGED

NOTE:

• Do not repair damaged SRS wiring. Replace the affected wiring harness(es).
• Before doing any SRS repairs, check for DTCs with the HDS, for the less obvious deployed components (front seat belt tensioners, front impact sensors, side impact sensors,
etc.).
• Do not replace the front passenger's weight sensor unit unless it is physically damaged or a specific fault was found during DTC troubleshooting because it could complicate
troubleshooting other DTCs.
• After a vehicle collision, do the front passenger's weight sensor unit operation check.
• When replacing the front seat belt tensioner, check the seat belt mounting portion for deformation. If any deformation is found, repair it as needed.

During the repair process, inspect these areas:
• Inspect all the SRS wire harnesses. Replace, do not repair, any damaged harnesses.
• Inspect the cable reel for heat damage. If there is any damage, replace the cable reel.
• Never attempt to modify, splice, or repair SRS wiring. If there is an open or damage to the SRS wiring, replace the harness.
• Do not repair a torn or frayed seat-back cover/pad. Replace the seat-back cover/pad if it is damaged

Replace all damaged parts.
