  WARNING

Risk of injury due to involuntary deployment.

  • Pay attention to the safety precautions when working with pyrotechnic components. Refer to → Chapter "Safety Precautions when Working with Pyrotechnic Components".
  • Observe the disposal regulations for pyrotechnical components. Refer to → Chapter "Airbag, Belt Tensioner and Battery Cut-Out Units, Storing, Transporting and Disposing (Pyrotechnic Components)".

- Disconnect the battery ground cable with the ignition turned on. Refer to → Electrical Equipment; Rep. Gr.27; Battery; Battery, Disconnecting and Connecting.

- Remove the headliner. Refer to → Chapter "Headliner, Removing and Installing".

Installing

  WARNING

Risk of injury due to involuntary deployment.

  • Pay attention to the safety precautions when working with pyrotechnic components. Refer to → Chapter "Safety Precautions when Working with Pyrotechnic Components".
  • Always follow the head curtain airbag installation procedure.
  • Before handling pyrotechnic components (For example, connecting a connector), the person handling it must "discharge static electricity". For example, this can be done by briefly touching the door striker.

Further installation is performed in reverse order of removal, while noting the following:

  Note

  • Make sure the connectors are pushed in all the way and that they engage audibly.
  • Make sure the wires are not pinched.

- Make sure the "colored strip" is visible along the entire length. This will ensure that the head curtain airbag is NOT twisted.

  WARNING

Repairing pyrotechnic components (For example the airbag and seat belt tensioner) incorrectly increases the risk of injuries due to unintentional deployments when the battery is connected.

  • The ignition must be on when connecting the battery.
  • Make sure that no one is inside the vehicle at the time when the battery is connected.

- Connect the battery ground cable with the ignition switched on. Refer to → Electrical Equipment; Rep. Gr.27; Battery; Battery, Disconnecting and Connecting.

  Note

If the Airbag Indicator Lamp -K75- indicates a fault, check the DTC memory, erase it and check it again using the Vehicle Diagnostic Tester.

Installation instructions: For example tightening specifications, replacing components. Refer to → Chapter "Overview - Head Curtain Airbag".
