PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

Any vehicle which is to be returned to use following a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) component deployment must have the deployed restraints replaced

With a driver airbag module deployment:
• Driver airbag [AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL]
• Clockspring assembly
• Steering wheel
• Steering Column
• Seat belt tensioners

With a passenger airbag module deployment:
• Passenger airbag [AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL]
• Seat belt tensioners

The seat belt tensioners are deployed by the same signal that deploys the driver and passenger airbags and must also be replaced if either front airbag has been deployed
• Any damaged restraint system part

PARTS THAT MUST BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF DAMAGED

• It is also critical that the mounting surfaces and mounting brackets for the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) and front impact sensors be closely inspected and restored to their original conditions following any vehicle impact damage
[AIRBAG MODULE,INTERIOR]
• Lower anchors and tether for
children (LATCH)
• Inspect all trim panels
• All seat belts, buckles, etc should be closely inspected for cuts, tears, fraying or damage in any way following any frontal impact or airbag deployment. The seat belts are to be replaced when visible damage is incurred.
• All other vehicle components should be closely inspected following any SRS component 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.
• Any restraint system part or wiring identified by diagnostic check
