CAUTION:FMake sure that the wire harness is tight. It is very dan-gerous when looseness in the wire harness results inthe steering wheel pad coming free through the shockfrom the airbag deploying.FAlways tie down the steering wheel pad with the padside 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 theshock of the airbag deploying and the steering wheelpad will be thrown into the air.NOTICE:The disc wheel will be marked by airbag deployment, souse the spare disc wheel.(d)Confirm functioning of the SST.SST09082–00700(e)Install the SST.CAUTION:Place the disc wheel on the level ground.(1)Connect the 2 SST connector to the steering wheelpad connector.SST09082–00700NOTICE: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 discwheel.(2)Move the SST to at least 10 m (33 ft) away from thesteering wheel pad tied down on the disc wheel.
