Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: Precaution

Precaution for Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) "AIR BAG" and "SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONER"

The Supplemental Restraint System such as “AIR BAG” and “SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONER”, used along with a front seat belt, helps to reduce the risk or severity of injury to the driver and front passenger for certain types of collision. This system includes seat belt switch inputs and dual stage front air bag modules. The SRS system uses the seat belt switches to determine the front air bag deployment, and may only deploy one front air bag, depending on the severity of a collision and whether the front occupants are belted or unbelted.

Information necessary to service the system safely is included in the SR and SB section of this Service Manual.

WARNING: • To avoid rendering the SRS inoperative, which could increase the risk of personal injury or death in the event of a collision which would result in air bag inflation, all maintenance must be performed by an authorized NISSAN/INFINITI dealer.

• Improper maintenance, including incorrect removal and installation of the SRS, can lead to personal injury caused by unintentional activation of the system. For removal of Spiral Cable and Air Bag Module, see the SR section.

• Do not use electrical test equipment on any circuit related to the SRS unless instructed to in this Service Manual. SRS wiring harnesses can be identified by yellow and/or orange harnesses or harness connectors.

Precaution for Procedure without Cowl Top Cover

When performing the procedure after removing cowl top cover, cover the lower end of windshield with urethane, etc.

Precaution

• When removing or disassembling any part, be careful not to damage or deform it. Protect parts which may get in the way with cloth.

• When removing parts with a screwdriver or other tool, protect parts by wrapping them with vinyl or tape.

• Keep removed parts protected with cloth.

• If a clip is deformed or damaged, replace it.

• Tighten bolts and nuts firmly to the specified torque.

• After re-assembly has been completed, make sure each part functions correctly.

• Remove stains in the following way.

- Water-soluble stains: Dip a cloth in warm water, and squeeze tightly. After wiping the stain, wipe with a soft dry cloth.

- Oil stain: Dissolve a synthetic detergent in warm water (density of 2 to 3% or less), dip the cloth, and then clean off the stain with the cloth. Next, dip the soft cloth in fresh water, and then squeeze it tightly. Clean off the detergent completely. Then wipe the area with a soft dry cloth.
