SFI Steering wheel pad and spiral cable
Disposal

HINT: When scrapping vehicle equipped with an SRS or disposing of a steering wheel pad (with airbag), always first deploy the airbag 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 steering wheel pad of which airbag has not been deployed.
  • The airbag produces a sizeable exploding sound when it deploys, so perform the operation out-ofdoors 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.

    SST 09082-00700

  • When deploying an airbag, perform the operation at least 10 m (33 ft) away from the steering wheel pad.

    The steering wheel pad is very hot when the airbag is deployed, so leave it alone for at least 30 minutes after deployment.

  • Use gloves and safety glasses when handling a steering wheel pad with the deployed airbag.
  • Always wash your hands with water after completing the operation.
  • Do not apply water, etc. to a steering wheel pad with the deployed airbag.

1. AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT WHEN SCRAPPING VEHICLE

HINT:

HINT: Have a battery ready as the power source to deploy the airbag.

(a) Check the function of the SST.

(a) Check the function of the SST.

CAUTION: When deploying the airbag, always use the specified SST: SRS Airbag Deployment Tool.

SST 09082-00700

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

HINT: Do not connect the yellow connector of the SST which will be connected with the supplemental restraint system.

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

CAUTION: If the LED lights up while the activation switch is not being pressed, a malfunction on SST is probable, so never use the SST.

  1.  Disconnect the SST from the battery.

(b) Install the SST.

(b) Install the SST.

CAUTION: Check that there is no looseness in the steering wheel and steering wheel pad.

  1.  Remove the front door scuff plate LH.
  2.  Remove the cowl side trim LH.
  3.  Remove the front door opening trim LH.
  4.  Remove the lower No. 1 panel.
  5.  While turning the steering wheel right or left, remove the 3 screws and column lower cover.
  6.  Disconnect the airbag connector of the spiral cable

  1. Connect the connector of SST to the airbag connector of the spiral cable.

SST 09082-00700, 09082-00780

NOTICE: To avoid damaging the connector of the SST and wire harness, do not lock the secondary lock of the twin lock.

  1. Move the SST at least 10 m (33 ft) away from the front of the vehicle.
  2.  Close all the doors and windows of the vehicle.

NOTICE: Take care not to damage the SST wire harness.

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

(c) Deploy the airbag.

(c) Deploy the airbag.

  1.  Confirm that no one is inside the vehicle nor within 10 m (33 ft) area around the vehicle.
  2.  Press the SST activation switch and deploy the airbag.

CAUTION:

  • The steering wheel pad is very hot when the airbag is deployed, so leave it alone for at least 30 minutes after deployment.
  • When moving a vehicle for scrapping which has a steering wheel pad with deployed airbag, use gloves and safety glasses.
  • Use gloves and safety glasses when handling a steering wheel pad with the deployed airbag.
  • Always wash your hands with water after completing the operation.
  • Do not apply water, etc. to a steering wheel pad with the deployed airbag.

HINT: The airbag deploys as the LED of the SST activation switch comes on.

2. DEPLOYMENT WHEN DISPOSING OF STEERING WHEEL PAD ONLY

NOTICE:

  • When disposing of the steering wheel pad (with airbag) only, never use the customer's vehicle to deploy the airbag.
  • Be sure to follow the procedure given below when deploying the airbag.

HINT: Have a battery ready as the power source to deploy the airbag.

(a) Remove the steering wheel pad (SR-14 ).

CAUTION:

  • When storing the steering wheel pad, keep the upper surface of the pad facing upward.
  • When removing the steering wheel pad, work must be started 90 seconds after the ignition switch is turned to the "LOCK" position and the negative (-) terminal cable is disconnected from the battery.

(b) Using a service-purpose wire harness for the vehicle, tie

(b) Using a service-purpose wire harness for the vehicle, tie down the steering wheel pad to the disc wheel.

Wire harness: Stripped wire harness section 1.25 mm2 or more (0.0019 in2. or more).

CAUTION: If a wire harness which is too thin or some other thing is used to tie down the steering wheel pad, it may be snapped by the shock when the airbag is deployed. This is highly dangerous. Always use a wire harness for vehicle use which is at least 1.25 mm2 (0.0019 in2).

HINT: To calculate the square of the stripped wire harness section: Square = 3.14 x (Diameter)2 divided by 4

  1. Install the 2 bolts with washers in the 2 bolt holes in the steering wheel pad.

Bolt: L: 35.0 mm (1.387 in.) M: 6.0 mm (0.236 in.) Pitch: 1.0 mm (0.039 in.)

NOTICE:

  • Tighten the bolts by hand until the bolts become difficult to turn.
  • Do not tighten the bolts excessively.

  1. Connect the connectors of the SST to the steering wheel pad connectors.

SST 09082-00802 (09082-10801, 09082-30801)

  1. Using 3 wire harness, wind the wire harness at least 2 times each around the bolts installed on the left and right sides of the steering wheel pad.

CAUTION:

  • Tightly wind the wire harness around the bolts so that there is no slack.
  • If there is slackness in the wire harness, the steering wheel pad may come loose due to the shock when the airbag is deployed. This is highly dangerous.

  1. Face the upper surface of the steering wheel pad upward. Separately tie the left and right sides of the steering wheel pad to the disc wheel through the hub nut holes. Position the steering wheel pad connector so that it hangs downward through a hub hole in the disc wheel.

CAUTION:

  • Make sure that the wire harness is tight. It is very dangerous when looseness in the wire harness results in the steering wheel pad coming free through the shock from the airbag deploying.
  • Always tie down the steering wheel pad with the pad side facing upward. It is very dangerous if the steering wheel pad is tied down with the metal surface facing upward as the wire harness will be cut by the shock caused by the airbag is deployment and the steering wheel pad will be thrown into the air.

NOTICE: The disc wheel will be marked by airbag deployment, so when disposing of the airbag, use a redundant disc wheel.

(c) Check the function of the SST (See step 1-(a)).

(d) Install the SST.

CAUTION: Place the disc wheel on the level ground.

(1) Connect the connector of the SST.

SST 09082-00700

NOTICE: To avoid damaging the SST connector and 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.

  1. Move the SST at least 10 m (33 ft) away from the steering wheel pad tied down on the disc wheel.

(e) Cover the steering wheel pad with a cardboard box or

(e) Cover the steering wheel pad with a cardboard box or tires.

  • Covering method using a cardboard box: Cover the steering wheel pad with the cardboard box and weight the cardboard box down in 4 places with at least 190 N (20 kg, 44 lb).

Size of cardboard box: Must exceed the following dimensions: X = 460 mm (18.11 in.) Y = 650 mm (25.59 in.)

NOTICE:

  • When dimension Y of the cardboard box exceeds the diameter of the disc wheel with tire to which the steering wheel pad is tied, X should be the following size.

    X = 460 mm (18.11 in.) + width of tire

  • If a cardboard box smaller than the specified size is used, the cardboard box will be broken by the shock from the airbag deployment.

  • Covering method using tires: Place at least 3 tires with no disc wheels on top of the tire with disc wheel to which the steering wheel pad is tied.

Tire size: Must exceed the following dimensions- Width: 185 mm (7.28 in.) Inner diameter: 360 mm (14.17 in.)

CAUTION: Do not use tires with disc wheels.

NOTICE: The tires may be marked by the airbag deployment, so use the redundant tires.

(f) Deploy the airbag.

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

  1. Check that no one is within 10 m (33 ft) area around the disc wheel which the steering wheel pad is tied to.
  2. Press the SST activation switch and deploy the airbag.

HINT: The airbag deploys as the LED of the SST activation switch comes on.
