Handling A Live Module


At no time should any source of electricity be permitted near the inflator on the back of the module. When carrying a live module (such as when removing the steering wheel), the trim cover should be pointed away from the body to minimize injury in the event of accidental deployment. In addition, if the module is placed on a bench or other surface, the plastic trim cover should be face up to minimize movement in case of accidental deployment.

When handling a steering column with an air bag module attached, NEVER place the column on the floor or other surface with the steering wheel or module face down.
