Subaru Legacy Service Manual / Airbag system / Airbag module disposal (deployment processing on vehicle) procedure

WARNING:

Make sure to follow the instructions below. Otherwise, personal injuries may occur.

Before discarding an airbag module, always perform an operation process to prevent any false activation.

Wear protective gloves, safety goggles and earplugs during this operation. Wash your hands afterwards.

Do not touch the airbag module just after activation because it is very hot. Before handling it for disposal, wait for 40 minutes.

CAUTION:

Airbag module operation process should be performed on a flat place in safety area. Do not perform the process outdoors when there is rain or strong wind.

Activating an airbag module causes a high explosive noise, be sure to warn people in the area, and do not allow anyone within 5 m (16 ft) radius of the disposal site.

After activating the airbag module, smoke may arise. Therefore, it must be activated in a well-ventilated place with no smoke detector nearby.

Do not expose the activated airbag module to water.

Wrap the activated airbag module in a sealed vinyl bag when discarding.

If it is impossible to perform an airbag module operation process due to some situational reasons, consult SUBARU dealership or one of the authorized workshops.
