Do not disconnect the roof wire harness from the driver’s dash area; once the headliner is lowered, detach the roof wire harness from the headliner by carefully peeling back just enough tape to remove the harness. NOTE:
- Do not remove all of the tape; it will be reused.
- Make sure the roof wire harness is out of the way so that it does not get tangled with the headliner when you remove it from the vehicle.
- Leave the AM/FM antenna attached to the headliner.
- Replace the driver’s (left) side curtain airbag with a new part.
- Confirm the proper system operation by turning the ignition to ON (II), and check that the SRS indicator comes on for about 6 seconds, then goes off.
- Reinstall the headliner in the reverse order of removal.
