Lexus NX: 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 assembly.
  • The steering pad assembly 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 assembly with a deployed airbag.
  • Always wash your hands with water after completing the operation.

HINT:

When scrapping a vehicle equipped with an SRS or disposing of the steering pad assembly, be sure to deploy the airbag first in accordance with the procedure described below. If any abnormality occurs with the airbag deployment, contact the Service Dept. of TOYOTA MOTOR SALES, U.S.A., INC.

2. DISPOSE OF STEERING PAD (When Installed in Vehicle)

NOTICE:

  • When disposing of the steering pad assembly, use an unneeded vehicle to deploy the airbag.
  • Be sure to observe the following procedure when deploying the airbag.

HINT:

Prepare a battery as the power source to deploy the airbag.

(a) Check the function of SST.

SST: 09082-00700

CAUTION:

When deploying the airbag, always use the specified SST:

SRS Airbag Deployment Tool

3. DISPOSE OF STEERING PAD (When not Installed in Vehicle)

NOTICE:

Be sure to observe the following procedure when deploying the airbag.

HINT:

Prepare a battery as the power source to deploy the airbag.

(a) Check the function of SST.

SST: 09082-00700

CAUTION:

When deploying the airbag, always use the specified SST:

SRS Airbag Deployment Tool

(1) Connect SST to the battery.

Connect the red clip of SST to the positive (+) battery terminal and the black clip of SST to the negative (-) battery terminal.

(2) Check the function of SST.

Press the SST activation switch and check that the LED of the SST activation switch comes on.

CAUTION:

(c) Using braided wire, tie down the steering pad assembly to an unneeded tire.

Wire:

Cross-sectional area of stripped wire

1.25 mm2 (0.0019 in.2) or more

CAUTION:

If the wire harness is too thin or an alternative object is used to tie down the steering pad assembly, it may snap when the airbag is deployed. Always use a wire for vehicle use with an area of at least 1.25 mm2 (0.0019 in.2).

*a

Wire Diameter

*b

Stripped Wire Section

HINT:

To calculate the area of the cross-sectional area of stripped wire:

Area = 3.14 x (Diameter)2 / 4

(2) Wind 3 wires at least 2 times each around each of the pins.

CAUTION:

  • Tightly wind the wires around the pins without any slack.
  • Make sure that the wires are tight. If there is slack in the wires, the steering pad assembly may break loose when the airbag is deployed.

*a

2 times or more

(3) Face the airbag deployment side of the steering pad assembly upward on top of an unneeded tire and wheel set. Separately tie the left and right sides of the steering pad assembly to the wheel through the hub nut holes. Position the SST connector so that it hangs downward through the hub hole of the wheel.

CAUTION:

  • Make sure that the wires are tight. If there is slack in the wires, the steering pad assembly may break loose when the airbag is deployed.
  • Always tie down the steering pad assembly with the airbag deployment side facing upward.

NOTICE:

The tire and wheel may be damaged by the airbag deployment, so use an unneeded tire and wheel.

(d) Install SST.

CAUTION:

Place the wheel on level ground.

(1) Connect the SST connector.

SST: 09082-00700

NOTICE:

To avoid damaging the SST connector or wire harness, do not lock the secondary lock of the twin lock. Also, secure some slack for the SST wire harness inside the disc wheel.

(2) Move SST at least 10 m (32.8 ft.) away from the airbag tied down to the wheel.

*a

10 m or more

(e) Cover the steering pad assembly (using a cardboard box).
