Subaru Forester: SRS airbag (Supplemental Restraint System airbag) / Precautions against vehicle modification

WARNING

  • To avoid accidental activation of the system or rendering the system inoperative, which may result in serious injury, no modifications should be made to any components or wiring of the SRS airbag system.

    This includes following modifications.

    • Installation of custom steering wheels
    • Attachment of additional trim materials to the dashboard
    • Installation of custom seats
    • Replacement of seat fabric or leather
    • Installation of additional fabric or leather on the front seat
    • Attachment of a hands-free microphone or any other accessory to a front pillar, a center pillar, a rear pillar, the windshield, a side window, an assist grip, or any other cabin surface that would be near a deploying SRS curtain airbag.
    • Installation of additional electrical/ electronic equipment such as a mobile two-way radio on or near the SRS airbag system components and/ or wiring is not advisable. This could interfere with proper operation of the SRS airbag system.
    • Modifications on or inside the front door panels for the purpose of a speaker replacement or sound insulation.
  • The impact sensors, which detect the pressure of an impact, are located in the doors. Do not modify any components of the doors or door trims, such as the addition of door speakers for example. Any modifications to the doors create a risk of the airbag system becoming inoperative or unintended airbag deployment.

  • Attachment of any equipment (bush bar, winches, snow plow, skid plate, etc.) other than genuine SUBARU accessory parts to the front end.
