I found this on my service CD - wouldn't this be a BLAST to watch? [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Air Bag Disposal


Procedure 1, Electronic Deployment with Wiring Intact

This procedure is to be used in the event that a vehicle with a live air bag is to be scrapped. Scrapping a vehicle may be required due to severe damage in a non-air bag deployable accident or at the end of the vehicle's useful life. This procedure assumes that the air bag wiring remains intact; that is, no diagnostic trouble codes are indicated by the air bag indicator, the system proves out correctly and the vehicle's battery is still in place (or one has been provided). This procedure is to be performed outdoors, away from other personnel, since the deploying air bag makes a loud report upon actuation.

1. Check and clear the front seat (60012) of all loose objects.

2. Do not permit any occupants to remain inside the vehicle.

3. Open the hood (16612) and check for an operational vehicle battery. If no battery is found, supply one and connect it in the usual manner.

4. Turn the key to RUN and observe the air bag indicator. If the indicator illuminates for six seconds and then stops, the supplemental air bag restraint system is intact and may be deployed. Continue with Procedure 1. If a series of diagnostic trouble codes appear, go to Procedure 2 to deploy the unit.

5. Place key in the OFF position.

6. Locate and disconnect the safing sensor connector on RH B-pillar.

7. WARNING: MAKE SURE THERE ARE NOT OCCUPANTS IN THE VEHICLE.

Jump Circuits 611 (W/O) and 614 (GY/O) using a 152mm (6-inch) length of bared wire.

8. Disconnect primary crash sensor located on the RH or LH radiator support.

9. Using a 152mm (6-inch) length of bared wire, short the 617 (PK/O) or 619 (PK/W) wire-to-ground. The air bag should deploy. If the air bag does not deploy, go to Procedure 2.

10. If successful, a loud report will be heard and the bag material will be visible in the center of the steering wheel (3600). Allow at least 10 minutes before approaching the air bag to allow for cooling.

The air bag is now inoperative and the vehicle may be scrapped in the usual manner.


Procedure 2, Remote Deployment of Air Bag

This procedure is to be used in the event that a vehicle with a live air bag is to be scrapped, but the vehicle does not contain an intact wiring harness or certain supplemental air bag restraint system components are inoperative. This procedure can also be used if Step 4 or 9 of Procedure 1 was unsuccessful.

1. WARNING: REMOTE DEPLOYMENT IS TO BE PERFORMED OUTDOORS WITH ALL PERSONNEL AT LEAST 20 FEET AWAY TO MAKE SURE PERSONAL SAFETY AND DUE TO THE LOUD REPORT WHICH OCCURS WHEN DRIVER AIR BAG IS DEPLOYED.

Remove the driver side air bag module (043B13) from the vehicle. Refer to «Module, Driver Side Air Bag» in the Removal and Installation portion of this section.

2. Cut the two connector wires on driver side air bag module and strip 25mm (1 inch) of insulation from the ends. Obtain two wires at least 20 feet long. Connect one end of each wire to each of the wires on driver side air bag module.

3. WARNING: DO NOT PLACE THE DRIVER SIDE AIR BAG MODULE WITH THE TRIM COVER FACING DOWN, AS THE FORCES OF THE DEPLOYING AIR BAG MAY CAUSE IT TO RICOCHET AND CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY.

Place the driver side air bag module with the trim cover facing upward on a flat surface in a remote area such as a parking lot or field.

4. Remaining at least 20 feet away from the driver side air bag module, deploy it by touching the other ends of the two wires to the terminals of a 12-volt vehicle battery.

5. If successful, a loud report will be heard and the air bag material will be visible. Allow at least 10 minutes before approaching the air bag to allow for cooling.

The air bag is now deployed and may be scrapped in the usual manner.

Re: Ford Funny

That would be cool, although i admit id be tempted to put something on the seat, to see what the airbag would do to it. Of course, id also be tempted to pop it (which probably wouldnt be that safe!)

Allow at least 10 minutes before approaching the air bag to allow for cooling.

Re: Ford Funny
