The entire SRS including air bag and pretensioner seat belt must be inspected by an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer after 10 years.

WARNING

(1) Any maintenance performed on or near the components of the SRS must be performed only by an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer. Do not permit anyone else to do service, inspection, maintenance or repair on any SRS components or wiring; similarly, no part of the SRS should ever be handled or disposed of by anyone except an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer.
Improper work on the SRS components or wiring could result in inadvertent deployment of the air bags or could render the SRS inoperative; either situation could result in serious injury.

(2) Do not modify your steering wheel, seat belt retractor or any other SRS components. For example, replacement of the steering wheel or modifications to the front bumper or body structure can adversely affect SRS performance and lead to possible injury.

(3) If your vehicle has received any front-end damage, you should have the SRS inspected by an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer to ensure it is in proper working order.

(4) On vehicles with the side air bags, do not modify your front seats, centre pillar and centre console.
It can adversely affect SRS performance and lead to possible injury.
Also, if you have found any tear or open seam in the seat fabric at the portion near the side air bag, have the seat inspected at an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer.

(5) On vehicles with side air bags, if your vehicle has received any damage to either side, you should have the SRS inspected by an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer to ensure it is in proper working order.

NOTE

(1) When you transfer ownership of the vehicle to some other person, we urge you to alert the new owner that it is equipped with the SRS and refer that owner to the applicable section in this owner’s manual.
(2) If you junk or scrap the vehicle, we urge you to first take the vehicle to an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer so that the SRS can be rendered safe.
