Subaru Legacy BN/BS (2015-2019) Service Manual: Disposal of pretensioner procedure


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

Before discarding a pretensioner, always perform an activation process to prevent any false activation.

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

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


Perform a pretensioner operation process in a safe, level place. Do not perform the process outdoors when there is a strong rain or wind.

Do not drop or damage the pretensioner.

A large explosive noise will occur when the pretensioner is deployed. Warn persons in the area, and do not allow anyone to approach a radius of 5 m (16 ft) from the discard location.
