Toyota Tundra Service Manual: Disposal

DISPOSAL

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

CAUTION:

Before performing pre-disposal deployment of any SRS part, review and closely follow all applicable environmental and hazardous material regulations. Pre-disposal deployment may be considered hazardous material treatment.

PROCEDURE

1. PRECAUTION

CAUTION:

  • An airbag or pretensioner may be activated by static electricity. To prevent this, be sure to touch a metal surface with your bare hands to discharge static electricity before performing this procedure.
  • Never dispose of a steering pad with an undeployed airbag.
  • The airbag produces an exploding sound when it is deployed, so perform the operation outdoors and where it will not create a nuisance to nearby residents.
  • When deploying the airbag, always use the specified SST (SRS Airbag Deployment Tool). Perform the operation in a place away from electrical noise.
  • When deploying the airbag, perform the operation at least 10 m (32.8 ft.) away from the steering pad.
  • The steering pad becomes extremely hot when the airbag is deployed, so do not touch it for at least 30 minutes after deployment.
  • Use gloves and safety glasses when handling a steering pad with a deployed airbag.
  • Do not apply water etc. to a steering pad with a deployed airbag.
  • Always wash your hands with water after completing the operation.
