Ford Escape: Important SRS precautions
The SRS is designed to work with the safety belt to help protect the driver and right front passenger from certain upper body injuries.
Airbags DO NOT inflate slowly; there is a risk of injury from a deploying airbag.

WARNING: Do not attempt to service, repair, or modify the airbag supplemental restraint systems or its fuses. Contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
WARNING: Modifications to the front end of the vehicle, including frame, bumper, front end body structure, tow hooks and B-pillar surrounding parts may affect the performance of the airbag sensors increasing the risk of injury. Do not modify the front end of the vehicle.
