Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual / General body repairs, interior / Technical data / Safety information / Storage, transportation and disposal of airbag, belt tensioner and battery isolator units (pyrotechnic components)

  Storage must comply with the relevant national legislation.
  Transportation is subject to national and international regulations that govern packaging, marking, labelling and freight documentation in detail.
  Untriggered pyrotechnic components must be disposed of correctly in the original packaging in accordance with national legislation. Contact your importer if in any doubt.
  Only completely ignited pyrotechnic components may be disposed of through the commercial waste system.
  WARNING
  •   This does not apply to belt tensioners which are operated by a Wankel type pump. Those must be disposed of like pyrotechnic components which were not triggered (e.g. airbags, seat belts, pyrotechnic battery isolators).
  •   Reason: On belt tensioners which are operated by a Wankel type pump it is not possible to verify, using workshop means, if all igniters have been triggered.
