Inspect trims for damage prior to installing them.
  Always renew damaged pillar trims; never repair.
  Ensure proper seating of trims when installing them.
  When performing repair work behind the curtain airbag, always remove the entire module.
  To prevent any potential damage during removal and installation, curtain airbags must be handled with extreme caution.
  Place removed curtain airbag modules in packaging or on a clean, flat surface on a cover.
  After body repairs in vicinity of curtain airbag, check body for weld spray droplets, deformations and areas of chafing (compare with opposite side if necessary).
  Until the gas generator is screwed in place, you must always hold it firmly by hand when handling (transportation, removal and installation etc.).
  Never twist, kink, throw, shake, pull, hang, squeeze, press, pinch or clamp any curtain airbag modules.
  Folding is acceptable as long as no damage is caused (in particular to the protective sleeve).
