TITLE: SRS AIRBAG COMPONENT REPLACEMENT & DISPOSAL PROCEDURES
SECTION: ELECTRICAL BULLETIN #99
DATE: APRIL 2000
The SRS Airbag system is an important safety feature of Toyota vehicles. It supplements the vehicle seat belt system by providing additional protection
to vehicle occupants in the event of a severe frontal or side collision (it equipped with side airbags).
In order to assure correct system operation it is necessary to replace certain components of the airbag system following a collision. In order to assist
technicians in determining which components should be inspected tested or replaced the repair manual information has been organized in the attached
matrix and replacement notes.
Even in cases of a minor collision where the SRS does not deploy, the steering wheel pad, front passenger airbag assembly, side airbag assembly, airbag
sensor assembly, and side airbag sensor assembly should be inspected and diagnostic tests should be performed. Always refer to the Toyota service
repair manual for the correct diagnostic and repair procedures.
The attached SRS airbag component replacement information includes:
^ A matrix indicating components requiring replacement inspection or testing after the deployment of the driver and/or passenger SRS airbag.
^ Component replacement notes.
^ A sample repair manual page outlining airbag deployment procedures when scrapping a vehicle. Please refer to the specific vehicle repair manual for
procedures to deploy an airbag that has been removed from the vehicle.
^ A sample repair manual page outlining passenger airbag manual on-off switch inspection procedures.
CAUTION: SRS Airbag service work can only be performed AFTER 90 seconds from the time the ignition switch is turned to the "lock" position and
the negative (-) terminal cable is disconnected from the battery.
