Tesla Model 3: SRS Component Deployment

If a vehicle is to be scrapped and contains an undeployed airbag module or pretensioner, the module or pretensioner must be manually deployed.

Always observe the following precautions:

Warning: Only personnel who have undergone the appropriate training should undertake deployment of airbag and seatbelt pretensioner modules.

Warning: A recently deployed airbag or seatbelt pretensioner is very hot. DO NOT handle a deployed module or pretensioner until at least 30 minutes after deployment.

Warning: Only use approved deployment equipment, and only deploy airbags and pretensioner components in a well-ventilated designated area. Make sure components are not damaged or ruptured before deployment.

Warning: Do not lean over airbag modules or seatbelt pretensioner units when connecting deployment equipment.

Warning: Contact with chemicals from deployed and damaged SRS components could present a health hazard. Wear protective clothing when handling and seal deployed units in a plastic bag. DO NOT eat, drink or smoke when handling SRS components.

Warning: Deployment of airbag modules and seatbelt pretensioners can cause injury to personnel in the close vicinity of the deploying unit. Make sure that all personnel are at least 15 m (50 ft) away from the deployment zone. Possible sources of injury include:

  • Impact: due to inflating airbag or pretensioner operation causing component "kick."
  • Hearing: due to noise produced by deploying airbags and seatbelt pretensioner units.
  • Burns: hot component parts and gases.
  • Irritation to eyes and lungs: from deploying gases or combustion residue.

Warning: Make sure the SRS component to be deployed is securely fastened to its mounting.

Warning:
  • Only use deployment equipment approved for the intended purpose.

  • Test the deployment tool before beginning the deployment procedure.

  • Notify the relevant authorities of intention to deploy SRS components.

Airbag and Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) Component Replacement Policy

In the event of an airbag or seatbelt pretensioner deployment, certain airbag and seatbelt components must be replaced, and other components must be inspected for damage. Refer to Body Repair Tech Note BR-17-20-002, "Airbag Component Inspection and Replacement After Deployment, Model 3" for a specific list of items that must be inspected and replaced.
