The air bag module with deployment doors must be replaced if the doors are damaged or marred. The doors must NOT be repainted because the applied paint may degrade the cover material.
Replace air bag modules showing damaged or marred deployment doors. Do NOT attempt to repaint the doors. Refer to the Dealer Master Parts Catalog for correct parts usage.
All faulty "live" air bags have been placed on the Mandatory Return List. The old discolored or marred module should be treated the same as any other faulty "live" air bag to be returned.
