Opel Insignia: SIR Deployed Inflator Modules Are Hot Warning

WARNING: After deployment, the metal surfaces of the SIR component may be very hot. To help avoid a fire or personal injury:

  • Allow sufficient time for cooling before touching any metal surface of the SIR component.
  • Do not place the deployed SIR component near any flammable objects.

SIR INFLATABLE MODULE DEPLOYMENT OUTSIDE VEHICLE WARNING

WARNING: When you are deploying an inflator module for disposal, perform the deployment procedures in the order listed. Failure to follow the procedures in the order listed may result in personal injury.

SIR INFLATOR MODULE DISPOSAL WARNING

WARNING: In order to prevent accidental deployment and the risk of personal injury, do not dispose of an undeployed inflator module as normal shop waste.

Undeployed inflator modules contain substances that could cause severe illness or personal injury if their sealed containers are damaged during disposal. Use the following deployment procedures to safely dispose of an undeployed inflator module. Failure to observe the following disposal methods may be a violation of appropriate country, regional or local laws.

SIR INFLATOR MODULE HANDLING AND STORAGE WARNING

WARNING: When carrying an undeployed inflator module:

  • Do not carry the inflator module by the wires or connector.
  • Make sure the air bag opening points away from you.

When storing an undeployed inflator module:

  • Make sure the air bag opening points away from the surface on which the inflator module rests.
  • Provide free space for the air bag to expand in case of an accidental deployment.
  • When storing a steering column, do not rest the column with the air bag opening facing down and the column vertical. Lay the column on its side.

Failure to observe these guidelines may result in personal injury.

SIR SEATBELT PRETENSIONER HANDLING WARNING

WARNING: When carrying an undeployed inflatable restraint seat belt retractor pretensioner:

  • Do not carry the seat belt pretensioner by the seat belt webbing or pigtail connector, if equipped.
  • Carry the seat belt pretensioner by the housing, keeping hands and fingers away from the seat belt webbing.
  • Make sure the opening, from which the seat belt webbing extends, faces downward and the seat belt webbing hangs freely.

Failure to observe these guidelines may result in personal injury.

SIR SPECIAL TOOL WARNING

WARNING: Failure to observe the special tool recommendations and instructions could cause SIR deployment, personal injury, or unnecessary SIR system repairs.

SIR WARNING

WARNING: This vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) System. Failure to follow the correct procedure could cause the following conditions:

  • Air bag deployment
  • Personal injury
  • Unnecessary SIR system repairs

In order to avoid the above conditions, observe the following guidelines:

  • Refer to Master Electrical Components List in order to determine if you are performing service on or near the SIR components or the SIR wiring.
  • If you are performing service on or near the SIR components or the SIR wiring, disable the SIR system. Refer to Disabling the SIR System.

STRUCTURAL ADHESIVE WARNING

WARNING: Service parts must be installed within one hour of applying structural adhesive. If the service parts are not installed within one hour, the structural adhesive might become dry and the proper bonding strength cannot be achieved. This will result in weakened body structure, and will significantly increase the risk of bodily injury in the event of a crash.

WINDOW RETENTION WARNING

WARNING: When replacing stationary windows, use a urethane adhesive system meeting GM Specification, to maintain original installation integrity.

Failure to use the urethane adhesive kit will result in poor retention of the window which may allow unrestrained occupants to be ejected from the vehicle resulting in personal injury.
