PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

With a Front Air Bag Deployment:
• Inflatable restraint instrument panel module (if deployed) [Instrument Panel Airbag]
• Inflatable restraint steering wheel module (if deployed) [Steering Wheel Airbag]
• Inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) [Airbag Control Module]
• Seat belt system in use during a collision serious enough to deploy any automatic restraint device such as air bags and seat belt pretensioners. This not only includes seat belt systems in use by people of adult side, but seat belt systems used to secure child restraints, infant carriers and booster seats, including LATCH system and top tether anchorages.
• Inflatable restraint front end sensors
• Seat belt pretensioners [Front Seat Buckles]
• Inflatable restraint side impact modules, [front seat air bags], if deployed
• Any damaged restraint system part

With a Side Air Bag Deployment:
• Inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) [Airbag Control Module]
• Seat belt system in use during a collision serious enough to deploy any automatic restraint device such as air bags and seat belt pretensioners. This not only includes seat belt systems in use by people of adult side, but seat belt systems used to secure child restraints, infant carriers and booster seats, including LATCH system and top tether anchorages.
• Inflatable restraint side impact modules, [front seat air bags], if deployed
• Seat belt pretensioners [Front Seat Buckles]
• Inflatable restraint side impact sensors, on the side of the impact
• Any damaged restraint system part

Sensor Replacement Guidelines:
The front end sensor [Airbag Sensor, Front] and SIS replacement policy requires replacing sensors in the area of accident damage. The area of accident damage is defined as the portion of the vehicle which is crushed, bent, or damaged due to a collision.

• Replace the sensor whether or not the air bags have deployed.
• Replace the sensor even if it appears to be undamaged.

Sensor damage which is not visible, such as a slight bending of the mounting bracket or cuts in the wire insulation, can cause improper operation of the sensor. Do not try to determine whether the sensor is undamaged. Replace the sensor.

CAUTION: Restraint systems can be damaged in a collision. To help avoid injury and ensure that all parts in need of replacement are replaced:

Replace any seat belt system that was in use during a collision serious enough to deploy any automatic restraint device such as air bags and seat belt pretensioners. This not only includes seat belt systems in use by people of adult size, but seat belt systems used to secure child restraints, infant carriers and booster seats, including LATCH system and top tether anchorages.

Replace any seat belt system that has torn, worn, or damaged components. This not only includes adult seat belt systems, but built-in child restraints and LATCH system components, if any.

Replace any seat belt system if you observe the words "REPLACE" or "CAUTION", or if a yellow tag is visible. Do not replace a seat belt system if only the child seat caution label is visible.

Replace any seat belt system if you are doubtful about its condition. This not only includes adult seat belt systems, but built-in child restraints, LATCH system components, and any restraint system used to secure infant carriers, child restraints and booster seats.

Do NOT replace single seat belt system components in vehicles that have been in a collision as described above. Always replace the entire seat belt system with
the buckle, guide and retractor assembly, which includes the latch and webbing material.

After a minor collision where no automatic restraint device was deployed, seat belt system replacement may not be necessary, unless some of the parts are torn, worn, or otherwise damaged.
