Removal and Installation

WARNING: Never probe the connectors on the air bag module or pretensioner. Doing so may result in pretensioner or air bag deployment and may result in personal injury. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.

WARNING: The safety belt pretensioner is a pyrotechnic device. Always wear safety glasses when repairing an air bag equipped vehicle and when handling a safety belt buckle pretensioner or safety belt retractor pretensioner. Never probe a pretensioner electrical connector. Doing so may result in pretensioner or air bag deployment. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.

WARNING: To avoid accidental deployment and possible personal injury, the backup power supply must be depleted before repairing or replacing any front air bag or side air curtain supplemental restraint system (SRS) components and before repairing, replacing, adjusting or striking components near the front air bag or side air curtain sensors, such as doors, instrument panel, console, door latches, strikers, seats and hood latches.

Refer to the appropriate workshop manual to determine the location of the front air bag sensors.
