WARNING
To reduce the risk of an air bag
deploying unexpectedly and
causing serious injury or death:
Do not hit or allow any objects
to impact the locations where air
bags or sensors are installed.
Do not perform maintenance
on or around the air bag sen-
sors. If the location or angle of
the sensors is altered, the air
bags may deploy when they

Do not install bumper guards
or replace the bumper with a
