Pedestrian Protection Center Crash Sensor -G693-, Removing and Installing

  Note

The Driver Side Pedestrian Protection Crash Sensor -G570-/Front Passenger Side Pedestrian Protection Crash Sensor -G571- is removed and installed in the same way.

Removing

- Remove the lock carrier cover. Refer to → Body Exterior; Rep. Gr.63; Front Bumper; Attachments, Removing and Installing.

- Remove the bolt -1-, and remove the Pedestrian Protection Center Crash Sensor -G693--2- from the bumper.

  WARNING

Risk of injury due to involuntary deployment.

Before handling pyrotechnic components (For example, disconnecting the connector), the person handling it must "discharge static electricity". For example, this can be done by briefly touching the door striker.

- Disconnect the connector -3-.

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".
  • 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.

- Attach the connector -1- to the crash sensor until it clicks into place in the direction of -arrow-.

- Push in the connector lock -2- to secure the connector.

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.

  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 - Pedestrian Protection".
