PFP:00001
Service Notice AIS000I1
? When removing or installing various parts, place a cloth or padding onto the vehicle body to prevent
scratches.
? Handle trim, molding, instruments, grille, etc. carefully during removing or installing. Be careful not to oil or
damage them.
? Apply sealing compound where necessary when installing parts.
? When applying sealing compound, be careful that the sealing compound does not protrude from parts.
? When replacing any metal parts (for example body outer panel, members, etc.), be sure to take rust pre-
vention measures.
Precautions for Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) ?AIR BAG? and ?SEAT
BELT PRE-TENSIONER?
AIS000I2
The Supplemental Restraint System such as ?AIR BAG? and ?SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONER?, used along
with a front seat belt, helps to reduce the risk or severity of injury to the driver and front passenger for certain
types of collision. This system includes seat belt switch inputs and dual stage front air bag modules. The SRS
system uses the seat belt switches to determine the front air bag deployment, and may only deploy one front
air bag, depending on the severity of a collision and whether the front occupants are belted or unbelted.
Information necessary to service the system safely is included in the SRS and SB section of this Service Man-
ual.
WARNING:
? To avoid rendering the SRS inoperative, which could increase the risk of personal injury or death
in the event of a collision which would result in air bag inflation, all maintenance must be per-
formed by an authorized NISSAN/INFINITI dealer.
? Improper maintenance, including incorrect removal and installation of the SRS, can lead to per-
sonal injury caused by unintentional activation of the system. For removal of Spiral Cable and Air
Bag Module, see the SRS section.
? Do not use electrical test equipment on any circuit related to the SRS unless instructed to in this
Service Manual. SRS wiring harnesses can be identified by yellow and/or orange harness connec-
tors.
Precautions for Battery Service AIS001PC
This vehicle is equipped with the automatic window adjusting function. When a door is opened, the window
automatically lowers slightly to avoid contact between the window and the side roof panel. After the door is
closed, the window will automatically raise slightly.
On vehicles equipped with the automatic window adjusting function, lower both the driver and front passenger
side windows before disconnecting the battery cables. This will prevent interference between the side window
and the roof panel when either door is opened/closed.
CAUTION:
After the battery cables are disconnected, do not open/close the driver and/or front passenger door
with the window in the full up position. The automatic window adjusting function will not work and the
side roof panel may be damaged.
Precautions for work AIS000I3
? When removing or disassembling each component, be careful not to damage or deform it. If a component
may be subject to interference, be sure to protect it with a shop cloth.
? When removing (disengaging) components with a screwdriver or similar tool, be sure to wrap the compo-
nent with a shop cloth or vinyl tape to protect it.
? Protect the removed parts with a shop cloth and keep them.
? Replace a deformed or damaged clip.
? If a part is specified as a non-reusable part, always replace it with new one.
? Be sure to tighten bolts and nuts securely to the specified torque.
? After re-installation is completed, be sure to check that each part works normally.
