DISPOSAL

HINT:

  • There are two types of horn button assy: One is used with 3−spoke steering wheel assy and the other is used with 4−spoke steering wheel assy.

  • The procedures listed below are for the 4−spoke steering wheel assy.

  • When scrapping a vehicle equipped with the SRS or disposing of the horn button assy, 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.

CAUTION:

  • Never dispose of a horn button assy which has 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 an airbag, perform the operation at least 10 m (33 ft) away from the horn button assy.

    The horn button assy 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 horn button assy with a deployed airbag.

  • Do not apply water, etc. to a horn button assy with the deployed airbag.

  • Always wash your hands with water after completing the operation.
