PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

Airbag Units, Removing and Installing After an Accident:

Airbag control module must be replaced [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL]:
• With driver and passenger airbag deployment “but not with airbag generation 9.•, 10.• and 8.R
• After three side, driver, and passenger airbag or belt tensioner deployments

Always replace the following:
• All triggered airbag units [AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL, AIRBAG,KNEE BOLSTER, AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL, AIRBAG,FRONT SEAT, AIRBAG,ROOF]
• The Battery Interrupt Igniter • N253-

Also with front passenger airbag deployment:
• Instrument Panel
• Deformed supports of the front passenger airbag unit (cannot be reformed)
• all sensors for front airbag on front end [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRONT]
• Remaining cross acceleration sensors if anchorage point is deformed in sensor region [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR, AIRBAG SENSOR,QTR PANEL]

Also with driver airbag deployment:
• Coil connector with slip ring [CLOCK SPRING]
• all sensors for front airbag on front end [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRONT]
• Remaining cross acceleration sensors if anchorage point is deformed in sensor region [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR, AIRBAG SENSOR,QTR PANEL]

Also with side airbag deployment:
• Pressure sensors on deployed side [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR]
• Cross acceleration sensors on deployed side [AIRBAG SENSOR,QTR PANEL]
• Cover
• Cushion
• with a folding rear seat backrest: side cushion (if equipped)
• Remaining cross acceleration sensors if anchorage point is deformed in sensor region

In addition:
• All automatic belt retractors with deployed belt tensioners
• All automatic belt retractors with deployed seat belt force limiters (depending on equipment)
• Seat belt latches for all automatic belt retractors with deployed seat belt tensioners with the belt on
• Seat belt height adjuster (manual and power) for all automatic belt retractors with deployed seat belt tensioners with the belt on

PARTS THAT MUST BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF DAMAGED

• After an accident, all damaged parts must be replaced
• After every accident the seat belt system must be inspected systematically
• All damaged securing pieces must be replaced, you cannot reshape components or make them fit.
• Connect the Vehicle Diagnostic Tester if there is a chance the belt tensioner and/or seat belt force limiter deployed

The following components must be checked after every airbag deployment.

With a front passenger airbag deployment:
• Instrument panel central tube, passenger airbag supports and passenger airbag must be installed free of tension. Replace central tube.
• Check the glove compartment for damage. Replace the glove compartment if damaged.

With a driver airbag deployment:
• Steering wheel

Airbag control module must be replaced:
• The airbag control module can be used for up to two deployments of the side, driver and passenger airbag and/or belt tensioner with airbag generation 8.• not 8.R.
• The airbag control module can be used for up to two side, driver and passenger airbag and/or belt tensioner deployments with airbag generation 9.•, 10.• and 8.R.
• After the third deployment, the malfunction display “Control module defect” appears
• if housing is damaged
• if there is deformation on tunnel in 200 mm circumference around control module

Also with passenger occupant detection system:
• Each time the front passenger airbag and/or belt tensioner on the front passenger side is deployed, the Passenger Occupant Detection System Control Module • J706• basic setting must be performed using the Vehicle Diagnostic Tester
• If the seat rail and/or seat pan is replaced due to deformations resulting from a crash, the Passenger Occupant Detection System Pressure Sensor • G452• must be replaced.

If needed (visual inspection), the following must also be replaced: all faulty components.
