Any vehicle which is to be returned to use following a supplemental restraint deployment, must have the deployed restraints replaced

When Driver Airbag has deployed:
• Clockspring
• Steering Column Assembly including Intermediate Shaft/Coupler
• Seat belt tensioners
• All Seat Belt Retractors and Buckles in use

When Passenger Airbag has deployed:
• Passenger Airbag [AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL]
• Instrument panel top pad
• Seat belt tensioners
• Passenger Airbag Wiring Harness or Connector (Must use approved wire crimping tool)

When Side Curtain Airbag has deployed:
• Side Curtain Airbag [AIRBAG,ROOF]
• Headliner
• A, B, C, and D-Pillar trim on the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag
• All Seat Belt Retractors and Buckles in use

The seat belt tensioners can be deployed independent of an airbag deployment, but must also be replaced if either front airbag has been deployed


It is critical that the mounting surfaces and mounting brackets for the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC), side impact sensors, and front impact sensors be closely inspected and restored to their original conditions following any vehicle impact damage. [AIRBAG MODULE,INTERIOR; AIRBAG SENSOR,FRONT; AIRBAG SENSOR,SIDE; AIRBAG SENSOR,QTR PANEL]

• Lower anchors and tether for children (LATCH)
• Inspect all trim panels

When Driver Airbag has deployed:
• Steering Wheel

When Side Curtain Airbag has deployed:
• Sunroof
• Sunroof Drain Tubes and Hoses

• All other vehicle components should be closely inspected following any supplemental restraint deployment, but are to be replaced only as required by the extent of the visible damage incurred

There are two methods by which an airbag or seat belt tensioner may be connected to the vehicle electrical system.
1) The first method involves a short pigtail harness and connector insulator that are integral to the airbag or tensioner unit and are replaced as a unit with the service replacement airbag or seat belt tensioner unit.
2) The second method involves a wire harness takeout and connector insulator (squib circuits) that are connected directly to the air bag or tensioner initiator. The heat created by the initiator during an airbag or tensioner deployment will cause collateral damage to a directly connected wire harness take out and connector insulator. Therefore, these direct-connect type take outs and connector insulators must be repaired following an airbag or seat belt tensioner deployment
