Prior to disconnecting or servicing any air bag components, disarm air bag system as outlined under "Air Bag System Disarming & Arming."
Air bag system components or seat belt tensioner units must not be opened or repaired. Always install new components.
Always place removed air bag module so pad is facing upward.
Air bag module or seat belt tensioner unit must not be exposed to grease or cleaned with any type of cleaning agent.
Keep units clear of heat sources. Do not expose air bag module or seat belt tensioner units to high temperatures for even brief periods.
Do not paint air bag modules to correct cosmetic flaws. Modules must be replaced.
Inspect all components prior to installation. Do not install any components that appear to have been improperly handled or stored, or that show any signs of damage.
When carrying live air bag module, ensure bag opening is facing away from body.
Do not drop air bag system components. It is safer to approach them from sides or below.
Avoid working directly in front of air bag module. It is safer to approach them from sides or below.
Dual stage air bags have two deployment stages. If stage 1 was used to deploy a dual stage air bag, stage 2 may still be active. A deployed dual stage air bag must be treated as an active air bag. If disposal of a dual stage air bag is required, both deployment loops must be energized to deploy air bag.
Do not carry inflator module by wires or connector.
Do not substitute a component from a different vehicle.
When storing an undeployed inflator module, ensure air bag opening points away from surface on which inflator module rests.
When storing an undeployed inflator module, provide free space for air bag to expand in case of an accidental deployment.
When storing a steering column, do not rest column with air bag opening facing down and column vertical. Lay column on its side.

When servicing a Chevrolet Captiva, adhering to specific precautions is paramount for safety and optimal performance. Safety equipment such as gloves and eye protection should always be worn to protect against potential hazards. Disconnecting the vehicle's battery before electrical work or servicing airbag systems is crucial to prevent accidental deployment and shocks.

Using genuine Chevrolet parts or approved equivalents is essential during replacements or repairs to ensure compatibility and maintain the vehicle's warranty. Referring to the Chevrolet Captiva service manual for procedures, torque specifications, and maintenance intervals is advisable for accurate servicing and to avoid damage.

Working in well-ventilated areas, especially when dealing with chemicals or exhaust systems, is necessary to prevent exposure to harmful fumes. Securing the vehicle on a stable surface with proper equipment like wheel chocks and jack stands before any undercarriage work or lifting operations is also crucial for safety. Regular inspections of critical components like brakes, suspension, and steering systems help identify potential issues early and prevent accidents or breakdowns.
