3. INSPECTION OF OTHER PARTS
Check for the following parts, and replace the damaged parts with new parts.
1. Steering wheel and steering shaft
Check the steering shaft for mounting conditions and deflection of front and rear, upward and downward directions, and deflection of front and
rear direction with tilt lever released. (After a collision, absorbing part of steering shaft may have been operated.)
2. Check the direct type connector of driver's airbag module, curtain airbag module, pretensioner, etc. for damage, and also check each harness
for pinch and connector damage. Replace the main harness as a unit if damage is found.
3. Check the seat cushion, backrest, seat rail and headrest for installing condition and play.
4. For the passenger's seat, replace the seat cushion pad frame assembly with a new part if the seat cushion frame assembly is deformed or

2. When installing a new driver's airbag module, check for the following, and replace the damaged parts with new parts.
The steering wheel is in the way, making it difficult to install the airbag module.
The clearance between the driver's airbag module and steering wheel is not constant.
When steering wheel deformation in axial and vertical directions exceed limits.
