Deployed Air Bag (Inflator) Module and
Activated Seat Belt Pretensioner Disposal
WARNING
!
Failure to follow proper air bag (inflator)
module and seat belt pretensioner disposal
procedures can result in air bag deployment
and pretensioner activation which may cause
personal injury. The undeployed air bag
(inflator) module and the inactivated seat belt
pretensioner must not be disposed of
through normal refuse channels.
The undeployed air bag (inflator) module and
the inactivated seat belt pretensioner
contains substances that can cause severe
illness or personal injury if the sealed
container is damaged during disposal.
Deployed air bag (inflator) module and the activated seat
belt pretensioner can be disposed of through normal
refuse channels just like any other parts. For their
disposal, however, the following points should be noted.
• The air bag (inflator) module and the seat belt
pretensioner immediately after deployment / activation
is very hot. Wait for 30 minutes to cool it off before
handling it.
• Never apply water, oil, etc. to deployed air bag
(inflator) module and the activated seat belt
pretensioner to cool it off and be careful so that water,
oil etc. does not get on the deployed air bag (inflator)
module and the activated seat belt pretensioner.
• After the air bag (inflator) module has been deployed,
the surface of the air bag may contain a powdery
residue. This powder consists primarily of cornstarch
(used to lubricate the bag as it inflates) and by-
products of the chemical reaction. As with many
service procedures, you should wear gloves and
safety glasses.
• When disposing of the deployed air bag (inflator)
module and the activated seat belt pretensioner, be
sure to seal it in a vinyl bag.
