Discovery 3 Airbags and SRS Sensors
Inspection and replacement of SRS equipment (airbag modules, steering wheel rotary coupler, seat belt pre-tensioners and ECU's) is dependent on type and severity of crash condition. The following guidelines are the minimum that should be exercised as a result of the deployment of specific SRS components.
If airbags are deployed, the following parts must be replaced:
The following should be inspected for damage and replaced where necessary:
If either or both seat belt pre-tensioners are deployed in a rear impact, the following parts must be replaced:
In addition, because of deterioration of airbag propellants over a period of time, the manufacturers recommend replacement of airbag modules, seat belt pre-tensioners and the rotary coupler at 15 year intervals.
Please note that airbag modules and seat belt pre-tensioners cannot be shipped by mail order and may only be collected from the counter. Storage and fitment of modules and pre-tensioners is potentially seriously hazardous and must be carried out by trained personnel using correct equipment.
