If the side curtain airbag has deployed, replace the quarter pillar trim with a new one.

2.

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

To prevent the side curtain airbags from deploying improperly and possibly causing injury, inspect the quarter pillar trim and replace it with a new one if it has any of the following damage:

-

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

-

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

After checking and adjusting the overlap between the headliner and the quarter pillar trim, replace the rear clip (C) with a new one.

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).
