CAUTION: F Make sure that the wire harness is tight. It is very dan- gerous when looseness in the wire harness results in the steering wheel pad coming free through the shock from the airbag deploying. F Always tie down the steering wheel pad with the pad side facing upward. It is very dangerous if the steer- ing wheel pad is tied down with the metal surface fac- ing upward as the wire harness will be cut by the shock of the airbag deploying and the steering wheel pad will be thrown into the air. NOTICE: The disc wheel will be marked by airbag deployment, so use the spare disc wheel. (d) Confirm functioning of the SST. SST 09082–00700 (e) Install the SST. CAUTION: Place the disc wheel on the level ground. (1) Connect the 2 SST connector to the steering wheel pad connector. SST 09082–00700 NOTICE: To avoid damaging the SST connector and wire harness, do not lock the secondary lock of the twin lock. Also, se- cure some slack for the SST wire harness inside the disc wheel. (2) Move the SST to at least 10 m (33 ft) away from the steering wheel pad tied down on the disc wheel.

NOTICE: If a cardboard box smaller than the specified size is used, the cardboard box will be broken by the shock from the air- bag deployment. F Covering method using tires: Place at least 3 tires without disc wheel on top of the disc wheel with tire to which the steering wheel pad is tied. Tire size: Must exceed the following dimensions– Width: 185 mm (7.87 in.) Inner diameter: 360 mm (14.17 in.) CAUTION: Do not use tires with disc wheels. NOTICE: The tires may be marked by the airbag deployment, so use the spare tires. (g) Deploy the airbag. (1) Connect the SST red clip to the battery positive (+) terminal and the black clip to the battery negative (–) terminal. (2) Check that no one is within 10 m (33 ft) area around the disc wheel which the steering wheel pad is tied to. (3) Press the SST activation switch and deploy the air- bag. HINT: The airbag deploys simultaneously as the LED of the SST ac- tivation switch lights up.
