REV: 03/2020

PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

When Driver Airbag has deployed:
• Driver airbag [AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL]
• Clockspring
• Steering Column Assembly including Intermediate Shaft/Coupler
• Both front seat belt retractor and tensioner assemblies
• All other seat belt retractors and buckles in use

When Passenger Airbag has deployed:
• Passenger airbag [AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL]
• Panel, Instrument Upper
• Passenger Airbag Wiring Harness or Connector if available (Must use approved wire crimping tool)
• The seat belt tensioners must be replaced if either front airbag has been deployed.

When Inflatable Knee Blocker has deployed:
• Knee blocker airbag [AIRBAG,KNEE BOLSTER]
• Airbag Mounting Plate
• The seat belt tensioners must be replaced if either front airbag has been deployed.

When Side Curtain Airbag has deployed:
• Curtain Airbag Assembly [AIRBAG,ROOF]
• Headliner
• Upper A, B, C, and D-pillar trim on the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag
• Side impact sensors on the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag
• Both front seat belt retractor and tensioner assemblies
• All other seat belt retractors and buckles in use

When the Seat Airbag has deployed:
• Deployed airbag [AIRBAG,FRONT SEAT]
• Seat back frame
• Seat Back Foam
• Seat Back Trim Cover
• Side impact sensors on the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag
• Both front seat belt retractor and tensioner assemblies
• All other seat belt retractors and buckles in use

If a seat belt tensioner is deployed • The seat belt tensioners are deployed in conjunction with the front airbags, but can also be deployed with a Seat AirBag (SAB) (also known as the pelvic and thoracic airbag) or side curtain airbags (also known as Side AirBag Inflatable Curtains/SABIC). All seat belt tensioners must be replaced if any airbag in the vehicle except a Knee AirBag (KAB) has been deployed

PARTS THAT MUST BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF DAMAGED

• Following ANY major vehicle impact damage in the vicinity of an impact sensor or the ORC • It is critical that the mounting surfaces and mounting brackets for the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC), front impact sensors and side impact sensors located within the proximity of the impact damage be closely inspected and restored to their original conditions. [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL; AIRBAG SENSOR,FRONT; AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR; AIRBAG SENSOR,SIDE; AIRBAG SENSOR,QTR PANEL]

• Active Head Restraint units that are undamaged are designed with the intention of reuse
• Lower anchors and tether for children (LATCH) and upper tether anchors (if equipped)
• Inspect all Trim Panels
• Occupant Restraint Controller and mounting location

When Driver Airbag has deployed:
• Front Impact Sensors
• Steering Wheel

When Passenger Airbag has deployed:
• Instrument Panel

When Inflatable Knee Blocker has deployed:
• Instrument Panel

When Side Curtain Airbag has deployed:
• Sunroof
• Sunroof Drain Tubes and Hoses
• Side Impact Sensors
• Seat Belt Tensioners

When the Seat Airbag has deployed:
• Seat Belt Tensioners

All other vehicle components should be closely inspected following any supplemental restraint 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. This connection method typically requires no additional wiring repair following a deployment.
2) The second connection method involves a wire harness takeout and connector insulator that are
connected directly to the airbag or tensioner initiator or squib. These direct-connect type take outs and connector insulators MUST be repaired following an airbag or seat belt tensioner deployment using the approved Supplemental Restraint System Wiring Repairs procedure.
