PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

Airbag Units, Removing and Installing After an Accident:

The airbag control module must be replaced [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL]:
1) With driver and passenger airbag deployment "but not with airbag generation 9.•, 10.• and 8.R."
2) After three side airbag. driver airbag, passenger airbag or belt tensioner deployments
3) If housing is damaged
4) If there is deformation on the tunnel in 200 mm circumference around control module

Always replace the following:
• All deployed airbag units [AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL; AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL; AIRBAG,FRONT SEAT; AIRBAG,REAR SEAT; AIRBAG,ROOF]
• The battery interrupt igniter -N253• IGNITER,BATTERY INTERRUPT
• Damaged securing pieces

Also with passenger airbag deployment:
• Instrument Panel
• Deformed passenger module supports (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 sensor on deployed side [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR]
• Cross acceleration sensors on deployed side [AIRBAG SENSOR,QTR PANEL]
• Cover
• Cushion
• Remaining cross acceleration sensors if anchorage point is deformed in sensor region [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR; AIRBAG SENSOR,QTR PANEL]

In Addition:
• All belt retractors with deployed belt tensioners
• All belt retractors with deployed belt force limiters (depending on equipment)

PARTS THAT MUST BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF DAMAGED

• Test the system with a suitable vehicle tester.
• All damaged securing pieces must be replaced, you cannot reshape components or make them fit.
• Seat belt system including Child seat anchors

Passenger Occupant Detection System:
• Each time an airbag or passenger belt tensioner deploys, the seat occupied recognition control module must be RE-ZEROED.
• If the seat rails and/or the seat pan must be replaced, replace the passenger occupant detection system with the "PODS service kit".

Note:
• The airbag control module can be used for up to 2 side airbag and/or belt tensioner deployments with airbag generation 8.•, except 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.

The following components must be checked after every airbag deployment:

With a passenger airbag deployment:
• Instrument panel center pipe/ tube; make sure the front passenger airbag module and supports can be installed without tension. Otherwise, replace the center pipe/ tube.
• Check the glove compartment and replace if damaged.
• Remaining cross acceleration sensors if anchorage point is deformed in sensor region

With a driver airbag deployment:
• Steering wheel
• Remaining cross acceleration sensors if anchorage point is deformed in sensor region

Also with side airbag deployment:
• Remaining cross acceleration sensors if anchorage point is deformed in sensor region

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