Airbag Disposal
Special tool required
Deployment tool 0957A-34100A
Before scrapping any airbags or side airbags (including those in a whole vehicle to be scrapped), the airbags or side airbags must be deployed. If the vehicle is still within the warranty period, before deploying the airbags or side airbags, the Technical Manager must give approval and/or special instruction. Only after the airbags or side airbags have been deployed (as the result of vehicle collision, for example), can they be scrapped. If the airbags or side airbags appear intact (not deployed), treat them with extreme caution. Follow this procedure.
Deploying airbags in the vehicle
If an SRS equipped vehicle is to be entirely scrapped, its airbags or side airbags should be deployed while still in the vehicle. The airbags or side airbags should not be considered as salvageable parts and should never be installed to other vehicles.
1.
Turn the ignition switch OFF, disconnect the battery negative cable and wait for at least three minutes.
2.
Confirm that each airbag or side airbag is securely mounted.
3.
Confirm that the special tool is functioning properly by following the check up procedure.
(1)
Driver’s Airbag :
Remove the driver’s airbag and install the SST (0957A-3Q100).
Install the driver’s airbag on the steering wheel.
(2)
Front Passenger’s Airbag :
Remove the glove box, and then disconnect the 2P connector between the front passenger’s airbag and SRS main harness.
Install the SST(0957A-3Q100).
(3)
Side Airbag :
Disconnect the 2P connector between the side airbag and side wire harness.
Install the SST (0957A-3F100).
(4)
Curtain Airbag :
Disconnect the 2P connector between the curtain airbag and wire harness.
Install the SST (0957A-3Q100).

Disconnect the 2P connector from the seat belt pretensioner.
Install the SST (0957A-3Q100).
(6)
Emergency Fastening Device :
Disconnect the 2P connector from the emergency fastening device.
Install the SST (0957A-3Q100).
4.
Place the deployment tool at least thirty feet (10meters) away from the airbag.
5.
Connect a 12 volt battery to the tool.
6.
Push on the tool''s deployment switch to deploy the airbag (Deployment is both highly audible and visible: It is characterized by a loud noise and rapid inflation of the bag, followed by slow deflation).
7.
Dispose of the complete airbag. No part of it can be reused. Place it in a sturdy plastic bag and seal it securely.
Deploying the airbag out of the vehicle
If an intact airbag has been removed from a scrapped vehicle, or has been found defective or damage during transit, storage or service, it should be deployed as follows:
1.
Confirm that the special tool is functioning properly by following the check procedure on this page.
2.
Position the airbag facing up and EFD (Emergency Fastening Device) and Active Hood Actuator must be placed in piled up, at least, 5 tires, outdoors on flat ground at least thirty feet (10meters) from any obstacles or people.
3.
Connect a 12 volt battery to the tool.
4.
Push the tool’s deployment switch. The airbag should deploy (deployment is both highly audible and visible: a loud noise and rapid inflation of the bag, followed by slow deflation)
5.
Dispose of the complete airbag. No parts can be reused. Place it in a sturdy plastic bag and seal it securely.
   
When EFD and Active Hood Actuator are deployed, broken parts are exploded and scattered.
EFD and Active Hood Actuator must be placed in the piled up 5 tires to avoid exploded broken parts.
Technicians should wear an eye protector and extremely be cautions of exploded broken parts.
