For vehicles equipped with a Supplemental
Restraint Air Bag System:
! Service on and around the air bag system
components or wiring must be performed
only by an authorized SUZUKI dealer.
Please observe all WARNINGS and CAU-
TIONS in SECTION 10B and Precautions, Air
Bag System Components and Wiring Loca-
tion View in SECTION 10B or before perform-
ing service on or around the air bag system
components or wiring. Failure to follow
WARNINGS could result in unintentional ac-
tivation of the system or could render the
system inoperative. Either of these two
conditions may result in severe injury.
! If the air bag system and another vehicle sys-
tem both need repair, Suzuki recommends
that the air bag system be repaired first, to
help avoid unintended air bag deployment.
! Do not modify the steering wheel, instru-
ment panel or any other air bag system com-
ponent (on or around air bag system compo-
nents or wiring). Modifications can adverse-
ly affect air bag system performance and
lead to injury.
! If the vehicle will be exposed to tempera-
tures over 93"C (200"F)(for example, during
a paint baking process), remove the air bag
system components (air bag (inflator) mod-
ules, SDM and/or seatbelt with pretension-
er) beforehand to avoid component damage
or unintended deployment.
