Removal and Installation

WARNING: Always
carry a live Safety Canopy or side air curtain assembly with the tear seam pointed away from your body. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury or death in the event of an accidental deployment.

WARNING: When installing
a new headliner on a vehicle equipped with Safety Canopy® or side air curtain modules, make sure the headliner has the word AIRBAG on the headliner where it meets each B-pillar trim panel. Otherwise, you have the wrong headliner. Failure to follow this instruction may result in the Safety Canopy® or side air curtain module not deploying or deploying incorrectly, increasing the risk of personal injury or death in a crash.

WARNING: Anytime
the Safety Canopy® or side air curtain module has deployed, a new headliner and new A-, B- and C-pillar upper trim panels and attaching hardware must be installed. Remove any other damaged components and hardware and install new components and hardware as needed. Failure to follow these instructions may result in the Safety Canopy® or side air curtain module deploying incorrectly and increases the risk of serious personal injury or death in a crash.

WARNING: Inspect
a Safety Canopy® or side air curtain module before installation. If the module is damaged, the cover has separated or the Safety Canopy® or side air curtain material has been exposed, install a new module. Do not attempt to repair the module. Failure to follow these instructions may result in the Safety Canopy® or side air curtain deploying incorrectly, which increases the risk of serious personal injury or death in a crash.

WARNING: Do not
obstruct or place objects in the deployment path of the Safety Canopy® or side air curtain module. Failure to follow this instruction may result in the Safety Canopy® or side air curtain module deploying incorrectly and increases the risk of serious personal injury or death in a crash.

WARNING: Never
put any type of fastener or tie strap around any part of a Safety Canopy® module, side air curtain module or interior trim panel. This will prevent the Safety Canopy® or side air curtain module from deploying correctly. Failure to follow this instruction may increase the risk of serious personal injury or death in a crash.

WARNING: Before
installing a Safety Canopy or side air curtain assembly, inspect the roofline for any damage. If necessary, the sheet metal must be reworked to its original condition and structural integrity. Install new fasteners if damaged and remove foreign material. Failure to follow these instructions may result in the Safety Canopy or side air curtain deploying incorrectly, which increases the risk of serious personal injury or death in a crash.

NOTE:

The air bag warning indicator illuminates when the correct Restraints Control Module (RCM) fuse is removed and the ignition is ON.

NOTE:

The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) must be fully operational and free of faults before releasing the vehicle to the customer.
