Always wear safety glasses when repairing an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) vehicle and when handling an air bag module. This will reduce the risk of injury in the event of an accidental deployment. Carry a live air bag module with the air bag and trim cover pointed away from your body. This will reduce the risk of injury in the event of an accidental deployment. Do not set a live air bag module down with the trim cover face down. This will reduce the risk of injury in the event of an accidental deployment. After deployment, the air bag surface can contain deposits of sodium hydroxide, a product of the gas generant combustion that is irritating to the skin. Wash your hands with soap and water afterwards. Never probe the connectors on the air bag module. Doing so can result in air bag deployment, which can result in personal injury. To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not use any memory saver devices. NOTE: If a seat equipped with a SRS component is being serviced, the SRS must be depowered. The air bag warning lamp illuminates when the restraints control module (RCM) fuse is removed and the ignition switch is ON. This is normal operation and does not indicate a SRS fault. The SRS must be fully operational and free of faults before releasing the vehicle to the customer. Repair is made by installing a new part only. If the new part does not correct the condition, install the original part and carry out the diagnostic procedure again. 1. Depower the system. 2. NOTE: Repeat this step for both locking pins. Using a 3-mm Allen wrench or a suitable tool through the access hole on the backside of the steering wheel, position the tool against the spring clip and push in, disengaging the clip from the locking pin. With the spring clip disengaged from the locking pin, gently pull back on that side of the driver air bag module to release it from the steering wheel.

Brake Caliper Diagnostics The total mileage since the pads were replaced is 6,472 miles. The repair order states: “Replace front
pads and rotors. Replace rear pads and turn rotors.” Like a piston ring in an engine, the internal compo-
nents of a caliper can only be diagnosed by the symptoms and not visually. Understanding what is behind the boot is critical to preventing comebacks.
