If the side curtain airbag has not deployed, check the C-pillar trim (A) and note the following items:

-

Any cracks, deformations, or stress-whitening in the C-pillar trim

-

Any cracks or stress-whitened areas in the clip seating surfaces (B)

Checking and Adjusting the Headliner/Pillar Trim Overlap

To prevent the side curtain airbag from deploying and damaging the pillar trim (A-pillar trim, B-pillar trim, C-pillar trim, quarter pillar trim), the overlap between the headliner and pillar trim must be less than 8 mm (0.31 in). To check the overlap, do this:

1.

Install the headliner (A) and the pillar trim (B).

2.

Apply masking tape (A) to the headliner (B) to mark the upper edge of the pillar trim (C).

3.

Remove the pillar trim, and measure the headliner overlap.

If the overlap is less than 8 mm (0.31 in), remove the tape, and install the pillar trim.

If the overlap is more than 8 mm (0.31 in), go to step 4.
