PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

After a collision involving a frontal air bag deployment, replace the following components:
• Inflatable restraint front end sensor [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRONT]
• Inflatable restraint instrument panel module [AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL], if deployed
• Inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL]
• Inflatable restraint steering wheel module [AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL], if deployed
• Seat belt pretensioners
• 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.
• Any damaged restraint system part

After a collision involving side air bag deployment, replace the following components:

• Inflatable restraint roof rail module [AIRBAG,ROOF], on side of impact
• Inflatable restraint side impact sensor (SIS), on side of impact [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR]
• Inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL]
• Seat belt pretensioner
• 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.
• 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.
